Olivia’s French Play

Olivia, Gr. 5, wanted to teach her little brother French. She thought writing and performing a play would be the best way to start teaching him.

The story is about a polar bear named Monsieur Flocon de Neige (snowflake), a rabbit named Monsieur Topaze who is always sleepy, and a pig named Monsieur Banane (pig) who is always hungry. They want to go to school but since Monsieur Banane hasn’t eaten breakfast yet and is starving, they need to feed him first. So Monsieur Flocon de Neige runs to buy strawberries and a chocolate cake. Then they decide to go to school, but when they arrive there, the school is closed! They don’t know what to do… but as Monsieur Banane is still hungry, they decide to head to the next coffee shop and eat together.

Watch:

Starring: Olivia as Monsieur Topaze, Katelyn as The Narrator, Kathryn as Monsieur Banane and Ella as Monsieur Flocon de Neige.
