This short musical uses simple rhyming dialogue and imaginative songs to tell the story of a school searching for the perfect principal. Taking its inspiration from the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale "The Princess and the Pea," the kids in this musical devise the perfect plan for choosing a new principal, since the teachers could not make a decision. The students eventually find the perfect fit, "A grown-up who could not stand peas," only to find out that their new principal is a fan of Brussels sprouts. Set in a cafeteria with a cast of students, the costumes, props and staging requirements are easy and affordable. The songs are well crafted, with limited ranges and careful use of repetition, and the stylish accompaniment tracks provide melodic support. 20-25 minutes.
