Alternative Family Education Talent Sharing 2012

(Last Update: 20:37 PDT 16 April 2012 )

Each year Alternative Family Education has a "talent sharing" where many of the home-schooled students perform (singing, dancing, and playing music are the most common performances, but there were also martial arts, stand-up comedy, and so on). Individuals were limited to 2 minutes each (groups had somewhat more time), so Abe performed a monologue that just fit the time limit: Cyrano's final speech from Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, translated by Louis Untermeyer
