Audience of about 400 from all walks of life and faiths applauded the perfectly choreographed performance of Sikh children who staged two musical plays recently at Wootton high School in Rockville, Md. This medium of art was employed by 30 children from ages 5 to 15 by enacting two popular American plays and they were staged in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the Sikh Scriptures, Guru Granth Sahib.

The eternal truth of Sikh Scriptures was conveyed through dramatic performance by children of Guru Gobind Singh Foundation (GGSF). Both musicals Yertle & Myrtle The Tyrant Turtles and Wayward Knight emphasized the overall theme for struggle for justice and service of mankind. The high light of the program was interfaith presentation of quotes very skillfully and artistically woven in the fabric of play. It was an unusual experience for non- Sikh audience to see turbaned artists depicting an American children's story.
