Students LOVE using their favorite music to create a jukebox musical. This bundle includes:
-A power point presentation that defines the term "jukebox musical" and outlines the types of songs that should appear in every musical
-A rubric for a project in which students create their own jukebox musical
I allow my students to choose either an artist or an era on which to base their musical. I explain that they can choose to do a musical like Jersey Boys, which uses an artist's music to tell that artist's story OR a musical like American Idiot, which uses an artist's music to tell an unrelated story. They may also choose to create something along the lines of Rock Of Ages, which takes its songs from a given decade and style.
This is always a highlight in my Drama II class! The students come up with some really fun and exciting ideas!
