Josh Colvin from 7th grade was recently selected by the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse as their Showcased Author for the ECHOES Performance presented every year to students in grades 6 – 8. The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse selects one written submission from each school they visit to be incorporated in their ECHOES performance. Introduced to the process in sixth grade, these submissions “echo” student’s creative thoughts and ideas in the form of a play. Colvin’s submission is entitled “The Lincoln House” and is about a group of friends who visit Abraham Lincoln’s house. The only problem is the house is haunted and the ghosts of Abraham Lincoln and his family cannot stop arguing with one another! Also receiving Honorable Mentions at the performance were Caden Jones, Hayla Josephs and Caeleigh Harrington, Keegan Byron, and Myah LaFave.
