Trying not to laugh | Photo of the day 3.5

George Shannon, librarian at The Island School, plays the part of Tiddalik the frog during the performance of “What Made Tiddalik Laugh,” an Aboriginal tale about a giant frog who drank all the water in the world.

The dreamtime story was one of the highlights of the opening ceremony Monday in Webster Hall of the school’s cultural study of Australia, a month-long instructional program focused on the land Down Under.

Students from The Island School dressed as animals for their parts in the play, which was bookended by a didgeridoo performance by musician John Groves and tasty samples of Australian food.
