GRMS 5th Graders Participate in Merry Go Round
Youth Theatre Program
Merry Go Round Theatre is the largest Youth Theatre in
Upstate New York and one of the largest in the country. The Merry-Go-Round
Youth Theatre reaches more than 125,000 students across the state through its
curriculum based multi-discipline Sequential Dramatics Program.
GRMS Fifth Graders had the privilege of participating in
Emilia and the Heart of the Amazon.
Meet Emilia, the daughter of a conservation scientist.
Emilia is precocious, adventurous and resourceful. When her father falls ill in
the middle of the Brazilian rainforest, Emilia ventures out into the jungle in
search of the Cinchona tree, whose bark and leaves could save his life. Along
the way she meets a young boy from the Ticuna Tribe who reluctantly agrees to
serve as her guide; a pair of goofy spider monkeys who, despite their good
intentions, may just do more harm than good: a jaguar who is as elusive as he
is mysterious; and a beautiful Morpho butterfly whose changing shape teaches
her the wisdom of the heart of the Amazon. When a construction team sent to
build a hydroelectric dam threatens to destroy the forest and the lives of
those within, Emilia and her friends must join forces to stop them before all
is lost. Learn how an American girl, a Brazilian boy, and all of Earth’s
creatures and natural resources are connected – and why preserving the
rainforest is more important now than ever.
