This play is based on the fairy tale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," but with a unique twist—the dancers are all basketball stars! I taught my students the popular dance from the 1970s, "The Hustle," for the dance sequence in the play. This was a definite hit with the audience. If this sounds too daunting, let your students come up with their own moves for a one-of-a-kind performance!
Synopsis: A coach is flabbergasted when his 12 basketball stars continually wear out their basketball shoes during mysterious nighttime trips. Winning the championship game is in peril if he can't figure out what they're doing.
Cast: There are parts for 22 children, though more may be added by adjusting the number of narrators.
