Fantastic Play

We have performed Vacation on Mars for three years now and each year it has been such a success. The students love it and by the end of our rehearsals and show, they know all about the Solar System. Not only are the songs catchy and fun, but the dialogue is too. I can't tell you how many times I would say, "Okeydokie," and a student or two would say, "Who's traveling to Mars today?" Then we'd start reciting the lines. Parents loved it as well. So much fun! Thanks for a great play!

Helps Cement the Solar System Lesson!

This is just one of the cutest plays I have ever done. The songs are so catchy, they sink into your brain, and cement the information there for good! Last year I taught 3rd grade and we did this play! Talk about AWESOME! This year I have fourth grade (I alternate back and forth between 3rd and 4th), and we were on a bus going to a field trip. In the seat behind me two of the boys started singing the songs, then the two next to them started singing them, and before the end of the second song, the whole group was singing the songs. Not just their parts from the play, but ALL of the songs. And YES, I was proud that they remembered it! :)

Love it!

I love the music I purchased! I am the music teacher at an Expeditionary Learning school where the Arts are integrated through all of the content. I purchased the musicals about Mars and Geology. They both are rich in content and are so much fun for the the kids to sing! I will definitely purchase more with you in the future.

Vacation on Mars!

This is the second play from Bad wolf that I have performed! The skit has humor that both students and parents understand, it's educational, both of my own kids are in High School and still sing songs about plays they have done from Bad Wolf! The tunes are catchy ( a little corny at times) but the students always end up having a great time singing them and performing them! Each grade level has over 100 students, so I have to add some extra parts/split into more, but it always turns out amazing! The grade level staff loves that it covers curriculum and the students love acting, singing and dancing! Best bang for your buck by far!

Vacation to Mars

Vacation to Mars musical has been a great culminating activity to support our ELA programs' "Space" theme. The skills required to bring a text into a polished performance has brought all learners closer to many of our goals in third grade.
