This two-day lesson focuses on the Tony award-nominated Waitress musical. Students study the production, plot, creative team and its journey to Broadway finishing with an enrichment assignment or activity. Waitress is the story of a young woman in a small southern American town who bakes pies while living through the challenges of a female, both physical and emotional.
The lesson can stand alone or be combined with one of my Famous Artist Biographies (Lin Manuel Miranda or Sarah Bareilles for example) or other musical lessons (Hamilton or Matilda)
A teacher could use the lesson with students in distance learning with a few tweaks. #DistanceLearningTPT
Note: I created a digital version of this lesson which is included in the cost. I split up the students' pages from the teacher's and put in answer boxes on the question sheet. I hope it helps!
HOW DO I USE THIS LESSON IN MY CLASSROOM: The class could take a few days and study this musical or it could be used as part of a musical theater unit and include several other musicals I've mentioned above.
