Hammond’s Holy Ghost Catholic School first-graders recently performed their annual Easter play for parents and students on two consecutive days.

Gina Anthon wrote much of the original music, and the first-grade teachers wrote the script based on the book “The Tale of the Three Trees.”

Performers and narrators led the audience through the sacrifices of each tree. Students dressed as trees, woodcutters, angels, the Holy Family, disciples, mourners and Jesus as they helped bring the story to life.
