The storm clouds are forming, and the boat's almost ready! Take a flustered Noah, add a wife, three rambunctious sons and two of every living creature on the earth and you've got chaos! It'll take a lot of faith to get them through forty days and nights of life on this crowded vessel. The sons have their own ideas on how to pass the time with basketball, stand-up comedy and a buffet table. The timeless Biblical story of Noah and the Ark is told through the unique perspective of Mom and Dad Elephant (who, of course, remember it vividly). This easily-prepared 16-minute musical is perfect for younger children's choirs. The reproducible Director's Manual offers permission to photocopy singer's sheets and dialog, making Don't Rock the Ark a budget-stretching, creative presentation for any time!

Available: Director's Manual, ChoirTrax CD, Preview Cassette, RehearsalTrax Pak (contains 12 preview casettes). Performance Time: 20 minutes.

A Choirtrax accompaniment recording contains the entire musical or collection twice: once with Accompaniment Only, once in Split-Track Accompaniment format.

The Split Track accompaniment recording is a normal stereo recording, playable on any audio system, large or small, that includes some way to adjust the levels coming from the left and right channels.

On the left channel:
the recording has the complete accompaniment playing - full instrumentation.

On the right channel:
the recording has the full choral vocals, omitting any solos.

The result is a very flexible product. With a mixing board, you can choose to use as much or as little of the vocal parts as you need and you can route them to different speakers for different use. Many choirs use a certain amount of the track vocals only in the choir monitors so that they can hear the vocal parts, but the sound being picked up by the microphones above the choir is overwhelmingly the live singers. Split-Track recordings are great for rehearsal also because you can use more of the vocals when learning the music and less as you get closer to the presentation.

  • July 11, 2005 A very fun musical and very easy

    We did this in cooperation with a VBS program at our church some time ago. It's easy to do, the songs are a lot of fun, and the audience LOVED it. People went away humming the themesong. Highly recommended
