Stories written by Hanby Elementary fifth grade students Caleb Piatt and Lydia Moore have been selected to be performed by The Columbus Children’s Theatre as part of 2016 The Child Writing Project. This year’s theme is You Are What You Eat. The children are students in Tara Norling’s English Language Arts class. Piatt’s play is called Origin of the Potato; Moore’s is titled Slice Pizza.
Each year, The Columbus Children’s Theatre selects a theme and collects stories written by students grades K-8. More than 1,000 submissions are received and this year, top 38 stories are being compiled to create a hysterical, fast-paced entertaining sketch comedy show seen by thousands of youngsters each year.
