10 Reasons Why Musical Plays Work
- Easy to Do
Our classroom musicals require absolutely no musical knowledge or ability, and can be put on without extensive staging or rehearsal. Read our Frequently Asked Questions!
- Reinforce the Curriculum
Bad Wolf plays are designed to emphasize state content standards in Social Studies, Language Arts, Science and Math, and Character Education.
- Spark the Learning Process
Participating in a musical play is a hands-on learning experience that makes the curriculum jump out of the textbook and come alive.
- Cross Language and Learning Barriers
Students of all levels, interests, and abilities respond to the theatrical presentation of material. It’s amazing how often “reluctant” learners shine when given a part in a play.
- Build Classroom Camaraderie
Putting on a show builds teamwork, cooperation, and mutual support. Students feel good about themselves, each other, and learning.
- Great for Music Teachers Too
A great majority of our plays are purchased by non-music teachers, but many music teachers have found our shows to be great resources. Sheet music is available for all our shows. Learn more!
- Integrate the Curriculum
Our musical plays are designed to make it easy to bring art, speech, movement, theater, music, and singing into your already bulging curriculum.
- Just the Project for Gifted Students
Many teachers of gifted students have turned to Bad Wolf musical plays for that extra energy in the curriculum. Give students the script and CD and let them go!
- Increase Parental Involvement
These productions—no matter how simple—get families and the entire school community involved in and excited about what’s going on in your classroom.
- Fun, Educational, and Rewarding
Student, teachers, administrators, and families love the catchy music, silly rhymes, and goofy humor that deliver real curricular content. Teachers often tell us these plays are the highlight of the year. And we guarantee it.
