"I really appreciate the excellent quality of the Kwanzaa story that combines culture with principles that students can apply in their lives.
"The reader's theater allows for a number of classes to take part in the presentation. The writing and reading is appropriate for all ages.
"The students are motivated by "fun" parts and will remember the principles because their learning is turned on.
"Finally, this is just an interesting fact that we will bring out in our presentation, that the theme of light is in Kwanzaa, Judaism and Christianity.
God Bless,

This play contains theatrical adaptations of seven different stories each of which explains one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa. Each story can stand on its own, or be performed together as a complete holiday celebration.

This hour-long one-act is actually 7 stories in one play, each of which can be performed separately or which can all be performed together. The play features an extremely balanced cast consisting of many large male and female roles, plus good supporting roles and non-speaking roles which can be expanded to accommodate the desired size of the performing company. It may be performed by as few as 16 actors doubling roles, or by a series of classes, with each class performing one story. Gender is interchangeable in many of the parts. Good for elementary and middle school from 3rd grade up, and, for some of the stories, high school. Production ideas for sets, costumes, etc. and curriculum suggestions for a complete thematic curriculum are provided at the end of the script. The hard copy version is 8 1/2" x 11" spiral bound with color cover.

Here's one of our satisfied customers:
"The plays are turning out to be an absolute success! The kids love the play you sent us. Thank you for making this a wonderful summer for our camp."
