The Tale of Dick Whittington and His Cat is a lively 15-minute classroom presentation.  It is an example of an Old English Pantomime from the Elizabethan Era.  Especially interesting are the Stock Players, the characters that were present in nearly every Pantomime of the age.  Explanations and background information are given in the Script and Lesson Plans.  The Script has parts for a flexible cast of 14+ children with the rest of the Class singing the songs as a Chorus.  The Music Teacher will like giving a mini lesson on Renaissance Music and instruments of the time period.  This story may be presented as an in-class Play complete with sets and costumes, or as a Reader's Theater or even as a section of a Chorus Concert. Having your students work to present this Mini-Musical will meet many of the Common Core Objectives for Elementary Language Arts.  Available separately are the Script, Score, Lesson Plans and Mp3 recordings of the songs.
