Ramayana  

 

Featured Events:

40th annual "Ramayana!"
A story of love, adventure, separation and an eventual joyous reunion, in an ancient allegory of the battle of good and evil
Every day (Jun 7-Jun 10)
Location: Mexican Heritage Theater, 1700 Alum Rock Avenue, San Jose Map

"Ramayana!" the Mount Madonna School's "sword-and-sorcery" production now in its 40th year and featuring an original rock-n-roll score and magical characters who encounter danger and love, good versus evil, duty, heroic action and sacrifice, will have performances June 7 to 10 at the Mexican Heritage Theater here, according to a press release.

 

The story of the Ramayana, as first told by the poet Valmiki, has endured for 2600 years as one of the world's most widely-read classics. The Mount Madonna production focuses on a small part of the larger Hindu epic's story and tells the story of Prince Ram, who, banished from his homeland of Ayodhya, leaves with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman to seek a new home. On their journey, they encounter an array of colorful beings, including tribal folk and gentle forest animals, giants and wizards, heroic monkeys and bears, an enchanted golden deer, a kingdom of demons led by the evil 10-headed Lord Ravana, and a wild, fire-breathing dragon.

 

(0 A May 2018) RamayanaDragon2.jpgThe show features a cast of some 200 student actors, ages 3 to 18, accompanied by a choir and adult musicians.

 

It is a story of love, adventure, separation and an eventual joyous reunion, in an ancient allegory of the battle of good and evil. The show is filled with exciting action, spectacular costuming and family humor. A rich performing arts tradition and integrated arts curriculum make MMS performances outstanding, said the release.

See what makes our program at St. Stephen's special for your child.

 

Children are encouraged to come to the tour and engage in the environment. At St. Stephen's parent and teacher partnership is facilitated through conversation and information to create a solid learning foundation for each child. For example each week an informational email including pictures of activities is sent to families in order to describe the learning objectives behind the fun.

 

In these tough economic times we offer an affordable option for the care of your child while providing the high quality support parents desire. Please come and experience St Stephen's creativity, care, and confidence.

 

Changes include fresh and colorful paint in several classrooms, an Art & Science classroom, and a re-designed 2 year old toddler program. Mayra Oliva, our toddler teacher, is bilingual in Spanish and is incorporating new and fun ideas into the curriculum.

 

Director, Kathy Berens has taught over 10 years at accredited Preschools and Child Development Programs. Kathy recently received an award from Palo Alto University for Student and Outstanding Senior Internship Presentation of the Year reflecting her work, thus far, completed for St. Stephen's Child Development Center.

 

We offer both teacher-directed and child-centered developmental activities through play and discovery. Children's interests emerge from planned activities on which we expand. As trained observers, we teach to each child's individual needs and interests. This process fosters cognitive, physical and social/emotional development. Our small class size provides a nurturing environment with a solid academic foundation that is well rounded and inspires a love for learning.
