Special education students from South High Magnet, Burke High, Benson High Magnet, and North High Magnet presented "Rap-unzel: A Modern Telling of a Grimm Tale with Rap Music" in early March. "Rap-unzel" is an original work co-written especially for this project by Fran Sillau, well-known theater educator, director, and writer, and Mark Kurtz, accomplished composer and musician. Students created a special backdrop for the production with the help of Paula Wallace, a painter from Omaha's Hot Shops. This project was a collaboration between the Omaha Public Schools and WHY ARTS.
