A Musical Journey Through The African Savannah
Let's go on a safari with Ward, Lilly, Didi, Daniel, Melissa, Wally, and a host of safari guides. Through song and dialogue, learn about the exciting African Savannah wildlife of lions, giraffes, geckos, bushbabies, servals, weaverbirds, crocodiles, and elephants. Either as a staged performance with characters or simplified speaker parts for a revue-style presentation, this well crafted, mini-musical will create a smart and fun-filled learning experience for students and audiences. The Teacher's Edition includes piano/vocal arrangements, a helpful production guide, and two script options: an engaging and fact-filled drama script with a lively collection of characters that will entertain your audience, and a narration script which can be read by 2-25 (or more) characters. Split or combine some of the lines to meet your specific needs. Singer PDFs are included via digital download.
To perform with recordings, there are two options: A Performance/ Accompaniment CD is available separately, or for cost-saving value, the Performance Kit/Audio includes the Teacher's Edition (with downloadable Singer PDFs) and Performance/Accompaniment Audio recordings via digital download. Songs include:
