WELCOME TO TEST REVUE: Where Music Meets Academia.
This ACADEMICAL MUSICAL for Grades 6-8 and Above has original music
that has been arranged and performed by professional Nashville musicians.
TEST REVUE is Theme-Based. The Theme: Students are reviewing language arts concepts with panicked momentum to get them all down and remembered before their end of the year tests in English Language Arts. This theme occurs throughout the musical from the "Test Revue Intro" through the "Test Revue Finale."
The following is the Synopsis: It’s almost test time! Our focus - Language Arts! Students had been feeling a little more than overwhelmed, like going crazy, as they had only begun to study for their upcoming exams. But now, just in time, MUSIC enters into the picture with a “HELLO, LANGUAGE ARTS!" That's when the action begins. Students find themselves having fun; singing and jiving to songs that bring language arts concepts to life in new and other exciting and unforgettable ways. The Rap Song, "Strategies," along with the "Test Review Finale" - including Rap Singers, Break Dancers, and Cheerleaders brings TEST REVUE to an exciting close!
STUDENT PARTS from 6 songs and 5 scenes: 26 Parts are designated for 13 girls and 13 boys, however many additional parts are needed
and to be assigned for: Rap Singers, Break Dancers, and Cheerleaders. The number needed is to be determined by the teacher.
PROGRAM LENGTH: Approximately 50 minutes
THE COMPANION SHOW TRAX CD must be purchased in a BUNDLE with the TEACHER EDITION (TE). Digital Downloads are available for purchasing either individual songs or the entire CD - all from CD Baby.
