Frog-A-Nanny Players to present tall tales program

By Angie Barmer

The second annual Frog-A-Nanny Players performance will be on stage soon performing “America’s Tallest Tales.”

Last year the FAN Players performed “Aesop’s Fables” on stage.

The gifted students at New Albany Elementary School team up with the special needs students from Susan Kelly’s class and Scherrita Tucker’s class at NAES and put on the play. In addition, the students from the New Albany High School Fashion Board put on a fashion show with the special needs students from the high school. Students from the art classes at NAES, NAMS, and NAHS help with the costumes and makeup.

“This is an opportunity for us to kick-off the Frog-A-Nanny season and showcase life skills, great experiences, and other meaningful things that are offered here for people with special needs,” said Amy Welborn, coordinator of the event.

Frog-A-Nanny Players is a free event, but donations are accepted. The event will be held at 2 p.m. on Feb. 23 at the New Albany High School Auditorium.
