The annual French show, “That French Show,” was performed by the Padua French Students on Tuesday, April 15 in Roberto Hall. Whether the Padua students were in French 1, 2, 3, or 4, they all put on a wonderful show featuring French trivia, a tour of Paris, and skits straight from the French theater.

The French 1 students lead the trivia part of the show. “It was cool to see the audience enjoy all of the work our classes put into the show,” Cate N. says. Each trivia portion of the show brought two audience members up to the stage and try their best answering questions from multiple categories using both their knowledge and the audience’s to win a prize.

A tour of Paris is what the French 2 students brought to the stage this year. Bringing the audience to famous places such as the Eiffel Tower and the Catacombs. Maya S., a French 2 student, says,”My French class really bonded over That French Show. We collaborated on a script skits about famous tourist sites in Paris. It was really fun to share ideas and create characters and scenes based on what we had learned about French culture. When our class started talking and sharing ideas, the whole plan just came to life. We became so much closer and have continued to be that close. Performing the skits was (although nerve wracking) so exciting! It was awesome to see something we had worked at being received so positively, it really made our hard work worthwhile.  I’ve really enjoyed the experience and can guarantee that my whole class did as well!”  The class used both pop culture and French fame to help all people in the audience feel like they really are in France or that France is really in Roberto Hall.
The French 3 and 4 students used phenomenal acting skills to perform popular French Theatre shows this year. The shows included Le Petit Malade (The Sick Little); Le Mariage Forcé (Forced Marriage); Le Corbeau et le Renard (The Crow and the Fox); L’amour et la Folie (Love and Madness); and La Tortue et le Lièvre (The Tortoise and the Hare). “Memorizing lines is always a challenge, but it’s even harder when your lines are in a different language that you’re still in the process of learning. Going over our lines together in class really helped because the other people in our small groups offered constant critique and constructive criticism, helping us learn and perfect our lines,” Leana B. explained.Understanding that not all the audience could speak french, slides were put in place, so that all could enjoy these classic French tales. This year’s French show, like all others, was quite a success.
