Michael & Jill Gallina - Shawnee Press
Here's a charming, imaginative mini-musical about a group of musically talented vegetables growing in Freddy and Franny Farmer's garden. This is not your typical garden-variety musical. The french-fried potatoes have "appeal," leafy vegetables sing "Lettuce Entertain You," and corn and peas beg "Please Don't Put Us in a Can-Can!" With the help of Freddy and Franny, these lively veggies sing and dance their way into everyone's hearts. With an easy-to-memorize rhyming script and flexible cast size, this budget-stretching kit includes director's score, reproducible singers' parts, choreography, costuming, and performance and scenery suggestions. The performance/accompaniment CD includes poster and program, clip art, and information about the composers. 18 minutes.
