Of Mice and MozartJill and Michael Gallina - www.jillandmichaelgallina.com
This reissue of a classic for grades 2-5 celebrates the life of Mozart! Featuring flexible casting and ideas for staging, scenery, and costumes, it uses rhyming text to tell the story of Mozart's life from the perspective of the descendants of the mice who lived in the woodwork of his house. Mozart's melodies are paired with humorous lyrics, from the opening theme based on Symphony No. 40 to the comic Musicians Will Always Be Baroque and a touch of the rap of Mozart, We Sing to You. These songs and creative puns will educate and delight students and audiences! The director's score comes with reproducible singers' parts, and performance/accompaniment MP3s are also available. Approx. 30 minutes.
