(Grades 2-6 · 20 min)
After finding a trunk full of costumes, props, and memorabilia from their grandparents' Broadway careers, the kids entertain themselves through song and dance by using some of the goodies found inside. Their fun helps them to realize hat everyone needs to make room in their lives for a little fun, make-believe, and showbiz. Easily costumed and flexibly staged, this twenty-minute mini-musical allows the involvement of more than one age group. Ten main characters have speaking and singing roles, but the chorus can include as many students as you like.
The Teacher's manual w/CD includes the piano/vocal scores, reproducible scripts, and a mixed-media Performance/Accompaniment CD, complete with audio tracks and reproducible vocal parts.
