    I did this musical with 130 fourth graders and they had a blast performing it. There are plenty of speaking parts and the songs are so catchy. I will definitely do this musical again in the future.

  • October 16, 2009 Saw this produced with 5th graders

    I saw this play last night produced using a fith grade class at Ruckersville Elementary School in Ruckersville, VA and IT WAS TERRIFC!!!! No political correctness, just the facts, produced in a way that the 5th graders could understand just what our Country is all about. How about patriotic songs...

    and the Pledge of Alligence to the Flag!!!! Unbelieveable.
