A Fashionable Musical For Young Voices
Everyone knows that all magic reindeer just want to fly, right? Or do they? This imaginative little musical dares to consider that maybe, just maybe, a reindeer's career outcome doesn't have to be quite so predictable. In fact, it could be very different. Such is the case in our story, where a few recent graduates of the School of Reindeer have realized that their true passions call less for flying, and more for drawing, sewing, and crafting. In other words, they want to be fashion designers. And not just any fashion designers – antler fashion designers!
With a little help from their North Pole friends, notably some elves and other reindeer, they decide to showcase some of their fabulous couture on the runway. Unbeknownst to them, Santa and Mrs. Claus just happen to catch some of the show and are very impressed. So much so that they invite the designers to create new antler fashions for the "famous eight" – and just in time to wear for their big night out!
Designed for ease of production and flexibility, this delightful musical offers opportunities for creativity, imagination, and artistic expression. With five simple and memorable songs (and some action music), young performers will delight in the chance to not only create their own stylish antler designs, but to showcase them as they walk, strut, sway, and sashay across your performance area this holiday season.
The five original songs include: Christmas Is Right Around The Corner, Stylish, Design Your Dreams, On The Runway, and Ready For Christmas.
As with all of our revues and musicals, there is a thoughtfully designed Teacher's Guide, with lots of suggestions for making a great performance. Also included are reproducible Singer's Parts, lyric sheets, posters, and program covers. (11 speaking roles and any number of non-speaking roles)
Antlers is available in four ways: printed Teacher's Handbook with CD, printed Teacher's Handbook with downloadable MP3s, downloadable PDFs and MP3s, and, for the best of both worlds, our CONVENIENCE COMBO KIT, which includes both print/CD and downloadable files.
