A Day at the Opera

Hansel and Gretel came to life for 117 St. Mary's students from Kindergarten through fifth grade at the Rose Theatre. Everyone loved it! They were a great audience. All of the kids got a Hansel and Gretel storybook as they left the performance.

Our students got this amazing experience absolutely free of charge! Thanks to generous donations Opera Omaha presented a special student matinee. The sponsors of the event were ConAgra, the Peter Kiewit Foundation, and the Lincoln Financial Group. The Nebraska Arts Council gave St. Mary's School a School Bus Arts Grant to cover the bus expenses. The 5th grade students were amazed to "do the math" to see the dollar value of this wonderful opportunity. They figured the total cost would have been over $2,000.00!

The students donated cans and boxes of nonperishable food items to the Omaha Food Bank as a thank you to ConAgra and the other sponsors. They are also making thank you cards.
