Spring Musical - Too Much Noise
New Salem Elementary Students in Kindergarten through Grade 2 performed the musical, “Too Much Noise” on Thursday evening, May 10, 2012 under the direction of music teacher, Mrs. Deanie Griffin. Too Much Noise! is based on a traditional eastern European folktale that teaches the age-old lesson that things can always be worse. Jacob and his family feel their house is too noisy, so they seek out the advice of the town's Wise Men. As instructed, the family members purchase a barnyard full of animals, only to find that their home is noisier than ever. At the Wise Men's advice, they then find new homes for their animals and learn that the noises that once bothered them are now a welcome relief.
