PARSIPPANY — The fifth grade students from Northvail Elementary School performed the musical “No Strings Attached,” which is an adaptation of Pinocchio. Geppetto, the old woodcarver, and his marionette son Pinocchio came to life amidst a cast of clever, talented characters during the production. Once a “real” boy, curiosity and temptation gets Pinocchio into trouble and he learns about the consequences of his actions. Ultimately he also learns of his capacity for change.
Basic Skills Math teacher Mrs. Serrao, Second Grade teacher Mrs. DeGeorge, and Principal Mr. Jeff Martens graciously assisted the fifth graders purely on their free time prior to the production. In addition, they arranged the special effects, music, and custom costumes in cooperation with the fifth grade parents.
The play was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone. Our fifth grade students should all be applauded for their fantastic job performing the musical.
