From the Middle East to South America at NISS

NISS news from students Carley Bobb and Nikole Klaric.

The NISS Drama students will be putting on a play later this month.

They have chosen to perform a version of the well-known Middle Eastern folk tale “Aladdin”. It is one of the most famous of the tales in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights (Arabian Nights). It has also been made into an animated film by Walt Disney Pictures.

Gavin Baumbach and Tabitha Chapman will be sharing the role of Aladdin. The beautiful Princess Jasmine will be played by Kate Pineda and Emily Johnson. With a cast so full of character and life, it is sure to be an unforgettable performance. The play is suitable for all viewers, and the drama students  encourage you to come and watch it. Admission to the show is by donation, and it will be performed at NISS in the Drama Room on Jan. 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. both evenings.

In other news, the Travel Club, run by Kathy Mitchell and Joy Zwicker, is planning a trip to Belize this coming spring break.

Belize it is located on the northeastern coast of Central America. It is the only country in the area where English is the official language, although Spanish is more commonly spoken. Belize is bordered to the north by Mexico, to the south and west by Guatemala and to the east by the Caribbean Sea.

Belize has a diverse society, making it a great destination for the NISS students to learn about other cultures, languages and have an adventure of a lifetime. The students have been working very hard and many fundraisers have been planned for this coming New Year.
