Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-An introduction to musical theater. The author covers the history of musicals from those inspired by Shakespeare to those written by Sondheim in one- and two-page chapters with added tidbits in sidebars. Creating musicals from poetry, basic acting preparation, rhythm and dance, and creative dramatics form the basis for activities. There are games, scenes for experimentation, and short scripts to stage. Many activities are physical in nature, and would work well with groups of young actors. The directions are given in organized steps. Some of the activities are quite creative and will challenge even the more seasoned performers. A few games involve vocal expression, but adults could add sound to any number of the activities; indeed, many invite experimentation. Simple drawings add a friendly touch. Since the book looks at musical theatre from so many points of view, it will be useful for different pursuits, e.g., teachers, directors working with young actors, and children looking for direction in theatrical ventures.

Review

“Useful for teachers, directors working with young actors, and children looking for direction in theatrical ventures.”  —School Library Journal


“If your child—or inner child—craves improvisation and learning how to turn a body into the shape of a letter, take a look at Show Time. Then get 25 of your best friends or your children's pals together and create the entire alphabet.”  —The Fresno Bee

If you can only purchase one book for your drama class, make it this one, or its companion, On Stage. This book worked with third through eighth graders in my drama classes, and helped them get stage ready. It's fun, easy to use and contains activities the students ask for repeatedly.

I first saw this book when I worked with young 4-H actors. I had some after school programs and summer programs and I used this book for extra activities and exercises with the children. It has many ideas and also makes the children imagine different circumstances. It has games they can do, warm-ups, improvisation, some monologues, and short plays. It has a little bit of everyting in it. I actually bought 2 of these, one of them for a nephew who has been battling cancer and is stuck home most of the time. I thought his brother and parents could do some of these activities with him, as he likes to act and didn't get to do it last summer. When he gets back into school full time, maybe he can take it to school to use with his class.

While the info and games presented are not new to anyone who has worked with children and musical theater much, it IS a nice basic book.
