Dinner service is now open! This show is a delightful production that turns the gym floor into a full, working, non-stop kitchen.
“Chef” starts with the morning prep work of our restaurant: the chefs start the burners and all are in a frenzy to get everything ready for the costumers. The music hints of a Parisian restaurant complete with accordion and quirky flare. Pots and Pans are also used as instruments, clinking, clanking, and tapping in time.
The second movement sets up an unforgettable visual moment for your performers. Bust out the aprons, trays, dishes, and racks on wheels for something really special! Finally, the closer brings everything together and the meal is prepared and ready to eat! Bon Appétit!
For the set, let your imagination run wild and bring in everything you can… and don’t forget the kitchen sink! Stoves, ovens, a fridge, a table for two, pots and pans, and maybe even a messy spaghetti and sauce that overflows onto the floor. See the video below for how we brought these items to life.
We hope you take this “Chef” from the kitchen into the hearts and stomachs of the audience!
“Chef” was originally commissioned for Temple City HS 2018 Percussion Ensemble (Temple City, CA) and was a WGI A Class Finalist and SCPA A Class Silver Medalist.
