River Trails Performs "Elfis and the Sleighriders"
First through Sixth grade students at River Trails Elementary got to rock and roll on stage while performing Elfis and the Sleighriders. The holiday play, directed by Colleen Wall, was about an elf named Elfis who gets a band from Santa for Christmas. There is trouble among the band members and an argument happens. With help and encouragement from Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their numerous reindeer and elf friends they remember how important friendship is and how to forgive each other. The choir, under the direction of Tonya McKenna, helped keep the crowd rocking with a beautiful set of Christmas songs at the beginning of the show and other "elf-tastic" songs throughout. By the end of the play Elfis is reunited with the band and they get to rock at the North Pole. It was a rockin' good time!
