Shades Cahaba students perform in this year’s musical, A Party in a Pear Tree.
The fourth graders at Shades Cahaba Elementary School performed their annual holiday musical the week before their Mid-Winter Holiday break.
This year, the students performed “A Party in a Pear Tree,” which revolved around the song “12 Days of Christmas.”
Party the Partridge was stuck in a pear tree during the musical, and calling birds tweeted for help, geese planned for the destruction of the tree and swans sang about the tree. At the end, a drummer solved the problem by using duct tape to fix a ladder and get Party out of the tree.
The story aimed to show that being with friends and family is the best gift of all during the holidays.
Hailey Pepper conducted the students in songs, instruments and dances.
