By: Cindy Marcus

Age Level: All Ages

So fresh and welcoming! What a different kind of guide this book is! Learn everything you need to know about play production for kids from a Disney film playwright and parent producer-director. She tells it all in a breezy, fun style from her own personal experiences. It tells teachers and parents how to assist kids in staging a play step by step and week by week. PLAYdate travels with adults and kids through the exhausting, exhilarating, and magical world of theatre. Within its twelve chapters it tells you how to choose a play or write your own. You’ll cast, block, design simple sets and costumes, plan rehearsals, recruit parent volunteers, and discover how to create a smash hit. Included are forms and checklists so you don’t forget anything. Inspirational trivia, photos, and do-able instructions all presented with warmth and humor. The book is full of anecdotes to charm and encourage from the start to the closing curtain and the outrageously delightful applause from everyone.
