Mapleton Elementary School students and faculty were treated to a performance by the B.Y.U. Theater Department recently.

Theater students turned Mapleton's  Auditorium into a "Theater in the Round" to present a delightful rendition of  "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".  Second and Third Grade students attended a workshop after the performance to learn about reading with Voice. They were instructed in the use of roll play, sound orchestration, onomatopoeia ( words that represent sounds)  and analysis of the play.
