Shepherds Play (4:30 pm and 7 pm) and Paradise Play (6 pm) Thursday December 19

December 16th, 2019 | Announcements, Events

One of the most beloved traditions at our school is the performance of the Paradise Play and the Shepherds Play before the winter holiday break. These unique plays are part of a trilogy of three ethnic German plays that originated in the middle ages. Since the plays were collected and passed to Rudolf Steiner and others, they have become part of the rhythmic schedule of festivals and celebrations, often being performed almost simultaneously at many Waldorf schools across the world.

This Thursday, December 19, in the Great Hall, The Shepherds Play will perform at 4:30pm and 7pm. The Paradise Play performance is at 6pm. (more…)
