A parent's and teacher's guide to putting on a play

By Cindy Marcus


Cover of
Calling all moms (and dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles too!)  who have volunteered to help put on a play at their kids’ school!  If you’re wondering what insanity struck you that moment you agreed to help, then this is the book for you.  With 12 chapters that take you step by step through the process of staging a play with elementary children, you’ll feel empowered to turn your daunting, overwhelming task into something amazingly doable.  There are so many schools nowadays whose budget for their theatre program is just a little below the price of a gallon of gas.  So how are the kids supposed to get started with a play if not for volunteers?  You know how important it is to teach these kids to write, compose and act.  You know how they will benefit from breaking through their shyness, learning to speak in public and being a part of something larger than themselves!  So volunteer and make it happen for them!  You’ll feel like your best friend is along for the journey as Cindy Marcus shares her views of the world, her personal narrative and her TLC tips along with great advice in this “easy breezy” read.
