A wonderful time this summer

This is our first time to use a play that is from a professional organization like Bad Wolf Press, we used to write plays by ourselves, but there's a big problem, finding good music and songs for kids, we've been struggling with this for a while. occasionally, a Canadian friend recommended Big bad wolf to us, so we could have a such wonderful time this summer, all the kids were happy and even months later, many of them still sing the songs form this play. Thanks a lot!

Audio files as needed

I bought the audio files as my children are in this play. I wish they were iTunes or other media format as they are harder to organize on the cell phone for rehearsals with my kids but they do the job.

Character Does Matter

I think the content is wonderful here. I love the lessons the students learn while they are singing and playing. While I really love the content, this is far from my favorite play at Bad Wolf Press. I'm not sure if it was the style of music, or what, but it just was not as catchy as others plays I've put on. I would actually recommend Character Matters II over this one.

This play still teaches students about character, which is a very important topic, so I would still recommend it!

Character Matters

I just completed putting on our school musical this year using the Character Matters play and songs. I had 61 kids in grades 3-5 and everyone loved the performance! The kids related well to the fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters and the parents and grandparents laughed at the clever jokes woven within the script and songs! It was a wonderful experience for all of us and the best part is that the kids learned even more about what it means to have good character!

Character Matters

Another successful show with my second graders! This show is so much fun and our parents really got involved with costumes for their child's fairytale character. Administrators loved the literary connections, and the great message. Great for the high level readers, but available parts for every level as well. I never have to worry about anything objectionable with a Bad Wolf musicals because over the 15 years I have been using them they have always been top notch. Thanks again for assisting in the journey of providing students opportunities to be creative.

Character Matters

My school really enjoyed the play Character Matters. The script was engaging and easy to memorize for my 2-5 graders. The music was interesting and easy to remember. A couple of songs need a little updating, but it was overall a fantastic play. I can't tell you how many parents and teachers told me that I did such a great job and the kids should take it on the road! I feel a lot more confident on putting on another play next year! Character Matters II here we come! Thank you for providing us with such a great musical. It was an amazing success!

Great script, great songs! The play was easy to adapt to a larger class and we were able to combine two 4th grade classes to perform, it was a fantastic show!

Character Matters 1 & 2 were fun for all!

The children enjoyed Alice's Adventures with Idioms so much we decided to give Character Matters and Character Matters 2 a go. We presented both shows on the same night with an intermission in between. This gave us a chance to give each of the children more to do. We were worried at first about them learning 20 songs instead of 10, but they had no problem at all. The children loved the songs and they are so easy to learn. The show and the songs are clever and the children also learned a lot about character and how to act in different situations. The audience loved it too. They were so impressed they gave the children a standing ovation. This is the second time we have used Bad Wolf Press plays and we loved them. The children have a lot of fun putting them on and they are very entertaining for the audience as well. Highly recommended.

Character Matters!

My 3rd grade class performed this play last week for the students and families. Everyone loved it! It was perfect for the beginning of the year. We also bought another play for the end of the year. I've been doing Bad Wolf Press plays for 10 years and just love them. Thank you!
