One way the holiday season is ushered in is with decorated department store windows, and children look in at the festive scenes as color and magic abound within them!
In this reproducible musical by Michael and Jill Gallina, narrators introduce each special window display and the audience is invited to follow them as they walk down the avenue and tell about the colorful scenes that appear in the five windows featured in this production: a winter scene, a holiday in the tropics, elves making toys, holiday cooking, and a New Year's celebration to close out the musical. Through the use of holiday windows, the musical joyfully sets the stage full of color, wonder, and excitement. Written in revue-style format, this musical can be easily presented by one classroom or a number classrooms and/or grade levels. By assigning a different group to each of the five window scenes, it is possible to successfully involve a large number of children. The easy-to-memorize rhyming script provides for 38 speaking parts. However, that number can be doubled if only one line is given to each child. The musical includes an easy rhyming script and lots of staging and choreography suggestions. The enhanced Teacher Edition includes a Singer CD-RM with reproducible singer and speaking parts. For Grades 3-5. 20 minutes.
