Family and friends of students at Munson Elementary School gathered at Zanesville High School to perform a special play. With funding from the Ohio Arts Council and The Muskingum County Community Grant Foundation, 4-th, 5-th, and 6-th grade students were able to write and perform the original play "Guided By Star". Staff members at Munson believe that the arts are an integral part of their students education. Directed by John Flemming, a resident artist, students depicted events during the era of slavery. And although the play embraces the history of the Putnam area here in Zanesville, the director hopes that "Guided By A Star" provides nore that a history lesson. He hopes that the play is a way to open their world view.
