Here's a fun-filled and entertaining selection! A heroic fanfare announces the opening curtain of a musical melodrama right out of the golden age of silent film. The hero, the damsel in distress and their perilous journey all set to well-known musical tunes, with your band replacing the theater organ. It's perfect for featuring your principal or other celebrity as narrator! Use a little creativity and allow your students to play the silent actors and even make their own silent movie. Encourage your audience to hiss, boo and cheer during the unfolding story. Easily rehearsed and fun for all! Your audience and students wont stop talking (and laughing) about this entertaining feature.
