This is a great first musical for students because it has a little bit of everything- a relatable story, beautiful music, love, comedy, and charming characters!
If you are thinking about starting a unit on musical theatre, "The Music Man" is an excellent musical and movie, and this product will help you make it a fulfilling experience.
Students will learn about the types of songs in musicals.
*12 slide powerpoint to introduce characters and songs
*Music Man Quiz with answer key. The quiz consists of matching characters to descriptions and song titles to their types, as well as a few short answer questions about the story, and a few opinion questions.
*You will need a copy of the Music Man DVD, although certain songs can be found on youtube.
*Check out my "Introduction to Musicals" lesson to give students insight into musical theatre, jobs in musical theatre, and performance skills.
