This hands-on, two-day classroom residency program brings the high spirit of the American musical to students in grades K-5. TMTP’s teaching artists lead students in exploring one of five classic musicals: Cinderella, Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, The Wizard of Oz or You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. During the program, children employ imagination, creativity and reasoning skills, learning more about themselves and their world through the lives and dreams of the musicals’ characters.

Children have a natural affinity for music, rhyme, play-acting and spectacle. Put them all together in the form of an American musical and you have the perfect vehicle for capturing the participation of even the most reluctant students – a fun-filled way to impart learning concepts that can nurture the whole child.
