An Unforgettable Experience

Its always somewhat magical when, after long hours of rehearsing a play that you thought was humorous, to actually hear a real live audience laughing out loud. Such was the case when my 6th and 7th grade students performed '13 Colonies' for an audience of around 300 people. The kids were tickled that all their hard work had paid off and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The favorite song of both parents and students was 'Bill of Rights'. As we are now studying our country's founding, there are many lessons that just need review as the information was artfully woven into songs which they will never forget. This play was fun, educational and sooooo useful to provide students practice in public speaking. An unforgettable experience.

Also, I love that Bad Wolf Press, not only puts out a high-quality product, but is also so easy to work with. They give you a free hand to make changes if needed. We took the Ben Franklin song, "A Million Things to do" and put some 1st grade kids in it with each saying a famous Franklin quote. I would highly recommend this company and the '13 Colonies' play to enhance your study of American History.

So clever and fun

I've taught music at Madrona Elementary for the last 14 years. Every year the fifth grade performs the "13 Colonies" play and I help them learn the songs. I am also a composer and I just wanted to let you how great that show is! So clever and fun, with just the right amount of humor and information. The flow is perfect and so entertaining. Every year I think how wonderful it is and how grateful I am to writers Ron Fink and John Heath. I love watching the kids experience the joy of performing and cooperation, but I also think they will never forget all the history they learned in those songs. So much better than reading it out of a book.

I just wanted to say thank you!
