So much fun!

We have an International Arts Festival at our school and my fifth grade students performed this musical for the school. (5th grade students study/represent China for the festival.) We absolutely LOVE this musical. It is so much fun and fairly easy to learn. The students enjoyed making the animal masks for the show. I have produced this musical 4 years in a row.

Talents Blossom!

We had a wonderful experience using The Tale of the Chinese Zodiac with our fourth- and fifth-graders! This was our third Bad Wolf Press play, so we expected the humor and catchy songs. They are always well-received by the students, the administration, and the audience. What I loved in particular this time was watching the students take on new challenges and share their ideas of how to improve our performance. They learned so much about communicating with an audience - diction, emphasis, pacing, facial expressions, waiting for response - skills that will serve them on and off the stage. They coached each other on lines and song lyrics. They cheered on classmates who were brave enough to sing solos - and so many of them were brave enough! We also had a fun collaboration with our art teacher who helped the students make masks to represent their characters. The chorus was enthusiastic, singing every word, doing every motion, and reacting to the main scenes. It was simply a wonderful experience!
