OAP Researches Roles

OAP students recently had the opportunity to research their roles for their upcoming play “Equus” in a very unique way.  On January 28th, the students traveled to Stable Spirit in Rose City to study horses.  Stable-Spirit is a nonprofit organization providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.  The students worked with horses and learned how they behave and how to take care of them.  Their UIL performance of “Equus” by Peter Shaffer will take place this spring.IMG_6245 (1)
