The Bremen Town Detective Band–based on the Brothers Grimm tale

Guaranteed to sprinkle giggles into your day, this fun adaptation of the Brother's Grimm fairy tale– "The Bremen Town Musicians"–includes talking animals and a surprise twist at the end.

I remember one teacher writing me that she had printed out Part 1 of this script for her class. When they finished Part 1 the students BEGGED for Part 2; however the teacher had not printed Part 2 of the script yet! :) Lesson learned.

Here's what another teacher spontaneously wrote me:

"I use Readers Theater in my centers as well.  My students really enjoy them.  One of their recent favorites was the Bremen Town Detective Band, parts I and II…Thanks so much for the wonderful product!  They had a GREAT time with it today."

Wouldn't your students enjoy having a "GREAT time" building life-long skills reading aloud?

Complete with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans, "The Bremen Town Detective Band" is perfect for primary through adult readers.
