Make a discovery with “Dig It!”

Thursday, April 13, 1 p.m.—WEST PAWLET—On Thursday, April 13, the Mettawee Community School’s sixth-graders will present “Dig It!, A Musical Tale of Ancient Civilizations” written by John Jacobson and Roger Emerson. There will be two performances: 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The community-at-large is invited to these free, handicapped accessible presentations.

Through “Dig It!” the audience will take a journey back in time to learn about the past through facts, reputable theories and legends, in the time of Mesopotamia, the building of the pyramids, as well as back in Ancient Rome, and more. There will be visits to Confucius, King Zozer, Gilgamesh and Romulus and Remus.

Each student has been charged with a quick research project about a “Dig It!” character and time period; and oral presentations will be made to classmates.

For more information, call 802-645-9009.
