I'm a big fan of the theater, especially musicals. Talented performers can take you to all kinds of places with wonderful music, gorgeous costumes, and beautiful voices.
I'm also a big fan of kid performances. Participating in plays teaches kids about teamwork. Kids work hard to memorize their lines. They have fun making costumes and scenery. It's a great opportunity to build self-esteem.
The first play I wrote for kids to perform was for an after-school program for third and fourth graders. I wrote a musical version of "Rumpelstiltskin". The kids did an outstanding job learning their lines and performing for their parents.
Today the ShowBiz Series includes five plays for elementary aged kids.
