Is this even possible?
Here’s something that has everyone scratching their heads. Late Monday afternoon teachers and students alike were left wondering if Josh Nasser’s dad is a bear since a bear picked up Josh from play practice. That’s right. After wrapping up rehearsal for “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” parents arrived to pick up their kids. Alex’s mom, Steven’s grandpa, and Madison’s mom we’re all there to witness the bear arrive to pick up Josh. Alex’s mom was reported as asking “Is that bear Mr. Nasser?”
“Everyone was pretty confused” said the show’s director, Anthony Buckle. “I’ve been directing plays here for years and I have to say this is the first time a bear has ever come to pick up a child.”
Josh reportedly packed up his bag with his script and costume while saying “Oh okay, Thomas is here. Good practice guys!” This caused many to speculate that the bear’s name is Thomas. “If it is Josh’s dad it’s weird that he calls him by his first name” said Madison “but if it’s not his dad then I don’t know who the bear is.”
“Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” will have performances October 16-19 at Bronxville Middle School.
