PARSIPPANY — The fifth graders at Northvail Elementary School put on an excellent, energetic and entertaining musical rendition of “Giants in the Sky,” winner at the 2017 Children’s Musical Theatre Festival in New York City. It is a fun musical filled with entertaining songs.
The story explores the world of Giants who live above the clouds. Ever since they left Earth a long time ago, the Giants have made a life up above where their job is to keep the sky beautiful. They polish the stars, poke the clouds to let it rain and paint the sunsets. But there is one curious Giant who wonders what life is like on Earth, so she steals a key to the locked up “beanstalk” and has quite an adventure. The show focuses on the friendship between Hershey and Bert, and how great friends are something you shouldn’t take for granted. The song “While You Can” is a wonderful reminder for all of us to show appreciation to the special people in our lives.
The cast and crew gave a marvelous performance under the direction of Mrs. Serrao, Mrs. DeGeorge and Mrs. Webb, teachers at Northvail, who volunteered many hours of their time in helping to bring together this amazing production of “Giants in the Sky”.
