In the Junior Toastmaster meet tonight our PEACH high schoolers gave their recitation speeches. It didn't have to be a recitation from memory but it was a retelling of a story using the skills they've learned including gestures, vocal variety and stage presences.
Abigail chose a recitation of Frank Stockton's The Lady or The Tiger. It's the tale of an unusual punishment imposed by a semi-barbaric king in which the accused must choose between two doors. Behind one door is a maiden and behind the other is a tiger. The protagonist is in love with the princess. Enjoy!
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
