“Song-Optional” Musical, ages 6-13

Travel back in time and be a Rock Star in all of history! Some kids who are Pop Star hopefuls encounter a mysterious time machine that sends them to the best eras in music.

There they meet some amazingly cool kids from different parts of the past, and get to perform the greatest songs ever written, Swinging Out in the roaring 20’s, Rocking Around the Clock in the 50’s, and Discoing the night away in the 70’s.

But when the time machine sends them into the far future, what music will they find? And can they get back home? Time to rock out!

This musical gives each student their own star-turn in the spotlight, including a solo song if they wish! We also do super-fun theater games that nurture creativity in a lively, positive atmosphere.
