What we Do

Our Mission: To ensure young people everywhere have access to quality musical theatre programs

by5

Adapting Broadway musicals for performance by elementary, middle, and high school students
Building intuitive teaching resources that guarantee educators have a successful experience producing one of our shows
Creating study guides and innovative educational programs for Broadway shows
Creating new musicals for family audiences like The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, The Ant and the Elephant, and Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter
Constantly researching and developing the absolute best practices that allow educators to create successful, cost-effective, and sustainable musical theatre programs

Why Musicals?
Musicals are the most efficient way to deliver all of the arts disciplines in one package. Singing, acting and dancing introduce young people to music, language arts and physical education. The creation of backdrops, costumes and props engage young people to the visual arts. Computer-driven lights, sound and projections expose young people to the digital arts and provide students with cutting-edge, twenty-first century skills. That’s the power of musical theatre.
