A baker! A sailor! A cowboy! A movie star! Life offers so many choices for kids today; they are free to be whatever they choose to be! WHEN I GROW UP explores these choices in today's lingo for today's kids. From a driving rock opener to a burly sailor chantey, a soft-shoe baker song to an ambling cowboy tune, this 30-minute all-school revue lets kids explore a variety of occupations and careers through music. The easy-to-learn songs and professional recording will make your show a hit for any audience, whether it be a general assembly, a community program, a class project or an evening concert. The Teacher's Manual contains staging ideas, choreography, costuming and enrichment activities for a complete all-school project. Let your kids project themselves into the future, build self-esteem and have fun as they shout to the world, I wanna be me WHEN I GROW UP!

Available: Teacher's Manual, Singer's Edition 5-Pak, Preview Cassette, ShowTrax CD. Performance Time: 30 minutes. For Gr. 1-6.

The Showtrax CD contains 2 recordings of the music. One is an "accompaniment" recording, which contains instrumentation only so that you can use it for accompaniment for your choral group, the second is a full "performance" recording which includes the vocals so that you can hear what it should sound like when performed.
