All Night Strut (MTI) Musical Review

The All Night Strut ( MTI ) Musical review

Show:  The All Night Strut
casting 13- per any group MAX   
Upper elementary school, Junior high and High school  (grades 5/6 with directors approval - through grade 12)  This is a musical review. 
The All Night Strut! A Jumpin' Jivin' Jam is an expanded cast show that moves through the Depression, World War II and the post-war boom in a two-act musical celebration of the 1930s and 40s, filled with jazz, blues, bebop and American songbook standards. Weaving together the work of legendary songwriters such as Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Cab Calloway and the Gershwins, the story moves through time and place to highlight a slick slice of yesteryear and capture a beloved American era.

A clown-like being, Coda, wanders onto a dark stage. With the flick of his magic baton, Coda brings light to the empty space with music and dance. A small group of vocalists lend their voices to familiar Duke Ellington, Frank Loesser and Jerome Kern tunes as the dancers and story move from World War II to musical theatre's heyday... to even the place without time, that Coda calls home. Presenting their stories with various styles of dance, including jazz, contemporary and musical theatre tap, Coda and the company of The All Night Strut! A Jumpin' Jivin' Jam eventually bid adieu and disappeared into the recesses of the wonder that is our imagination, but not before having a "jumpin' & jivin' good time!"It's the perfect blend of engaging dance, colorful characters and well-known music. With each major section being somewhat unique in dance and music style.

A Pocketful Of Rhymes  (MTI)

Show: A Pocketful of Rhyme
K - through grade 5/6 with directors approval   
Casting - 8 per any group MAX 

This is a wacky revue, mixing well-loved folk songs with a crazy collection of melody and fun, introducing Mother Goose to a whole new generation of audiences. Enormously popular, the original production of A Pocketful Of Rhymes – staged with only a chair and six blocks – played limited engagements on Broadway and even inspired a CBS television series.A Pocketful of Rhymes is an energetic musical revue that features Mother Goose's "greatest hits." Classic nursery rhymes are set to a catchy contemporary score as Mother Goose teaches her young friends a variety of lessons. Moving through a variety of styles of twentieth-century American music, Mother Goose and the kids explore favorites like "The Spider and the Fly," "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." They end with Mother Goose telling the story of a thousand years of human civilization in music and rhyme.A Pocketful of Rhymes is perfect for companies that are looking to do a show with featured roles for children. With no dancing requirement and minimal set needs, the show is easy to produce. The tuneful score, paired with timeless stories, makes A Pocketful of Rhymes a theatrical staple.
