The Fremont Elementary auditorium filled with giggles and cheers as the acting company of "We Tell Stories" jumped from the stage into the audience during their performance Nov. 12.
The students of Fremont got to see, hear and even participate in two stories, "One Chanukah in Chelm," by Shalom Aleichem, and "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," by Eta Hoffman. The extremely energetic actors, Stacy Turner, Armando Ortega and Ova Saopeng, did not let the show slow down once as they had the kids roaring with laughter with their version of these books.
Each performance began with an antique trunk in the middle of the stage.
"These are what we call our trunk stories," said Turner.
Throughout the performance the actors pulled props out of the trunk, including crowns and pots and pans, as well as costumes for royalty and mice.
