The Book Shoppe


“…next time you see a book…don’t be shy and take a look!”

This production is an absolute page turner with opportunities to take your ensemble on a musical and visual voyage. The first movement lives in a world of wonder as the floor comes alive in the book shoppe through a lush musical palette. Soon, a character is introduced in this space. The battery members offer her several books, in which she denies all of them. At the beginning of movement 2, she finally decides on the book…she opens it…and she hears a loud, thunderous voice. The character becomes startled and closes the book in fright. From here on out, your production takes on to the seas where the entire floor transforms into the story she is reading.

A great, modern spin on a classic storytelling show. This show will be memorable and stand out among the rest!
