This show is a time traveling musical history lesson!! The speakers’ script includes many facts about inventions and inventors of the 20th century and the musical performances will take the audience on a trip down memory lane.
This performance package can be used by an elementary classroom teacher, a music teacher, a summer camp coordinator, or a drama program instructor.
This show could be performed by anywhere from 25 to 100+ students depending on stage size.
The length of the performance is approximately 50 minutes.
This show was originally performed by 80 students in my drama program (K through 8th). I divided them into 4 class groups of 20 students. However this show could easily be performed by less or more students depending on your class/classes and your stage.
Some grouping options are:
-One class (25 students) split into 4 groups each performing two decades
-Four classes each performing two decades
-Eight classes each taking one decade (last decade as whole group finale)
-Seven classes each taking one decade (50’s and 2000 performed by all)
Decade Groups: Costume options
1. The 20’s – Flapper Costumes
2. The 30’s – Top Hats and Canes
3. The 40’s – Soldiers or Patriotic
4. The 50’s - Poodle Skirts/Elvis
5. The 60’s – Twisters/Chubby Checker
6. The 70’s – Disco Costumes
7. The 80’s – Neon and Mohawks
8. The 90’s – Hip Hop/Vanilla Ice
