Johnny Appleseed visits BPS
Mr. Fincken performed his one-man show for all of the students at BPS. He regaled us with tall tales from the perspective of Johnny Appleseed. He spoke about the importance of the apple to pioneers in the Midwest and eastern United States during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He also taught the students some acting basics.
Here is a description of the program from Mr. Fincken's website: "70-year-old Johnny Appleseed shares some tall tale adventures concerning his travels throughout the Midwest. This is story-telling in theatre form, legend and fact becoming one. John Chapman was a non-violent man in a violent time and as such deserves your attention today."
