Jerry Rapier, Artistic Director of Plan-B Theatre, reported a successful performance of "Flora Meets a Bee," a children's production, for 77 students in grades 1–3 at Loa Elementary School. (The kindergarten class was on a field trip to a pumpkin patch.) Five of the children and nine staff members were seeing a play for the first time.

A third grader told Brenda, "Don't sting me." She told him that bees only sting people who say, "Don't sting me." Immediately a chorus of cheeky voices started calling out, "Don't sting me!" The children were engaged and enthusiastic participants in the performance.

One of the teachers said, "Thank you! That was awesome!" The Entrada Institute agrees and extends its appreciation to Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks and especially to Plan-B Theatre for bringing its production to Loa Elementary School.
