The epic story of The Wright Brothers and their flying machine comes to life in modern day rap, song and narration. Your cast and crew are going to love the cutting edge feel to this hip-hop style musical about two of America's true heroic figures that will speak to cast and audience for today. Told by a group of intrepid reporters who are tailing the inventors, we discover that, as incredible as Orville and Wilbur's feat of inventing the first successful airplane was, the real lesson may well be the example they demonstrated by building their future and dreams on higher ground, and setting their sights up and not down. Right? Wright! This 35-minute musical features five original songs with connecting script and a flexible cast of newspaper reporters and rapping reporters. The Teacher Edition is filled with quality performance material including piano/vocal arrangements and choreography, script and helpful production guide. For added value, the ready-to-use student books include vocal parts and script, and come in handy 10-paks. To perform with recordings, there are 2 options. A Performance/Accompaniment CD is available separately. For cost-saving value, the Performance Kit/Audio includes the Teacher Edition, 20 Singer books and digital access to performance/accompaniment audio recordings. 35 minutes. Suggested for grades 4-8.
