(Grades K-3, 15 Minutes) Young imaginations run wild when the subject is outer space. That's just one reason this is the perfect K-3 musical for this spring...or any other time of year. The story revolves around a group of space mice who crash (safely and comically) on earth. They are rejected by the local mice because they look and sound different. Just then, the Bad Cat threatens a baby earth mouse and a chase ensures. When the space mice join in to scare off the cat, the earth mice realize that they were wrong about their strange new firends, and they learn a valuable lesson about acceptance. Created by Teresa Jennings, this 15-minute musical features five easy, original songs and simple script with short, natural lines for a variable number of speaking parts. The Accompaniment CD can make your rehearsals easier and your performance more polished. The recording features the musical in 3 ways (full performance with and without dialogue, and accompaniment only) as well as special chase music and a terrific cartoon-style sound effect for the offstage crash of the space ship.
