During a school field trip to the local museum, students learn the tradition of artists asking the Muses for aid in their creations. Then the class teacher reminds the students of their upcoming final project.
Poor Theodore! He lacks a creative spark, and jokingly prays to the Muses for inspiration. To his surprise (and great distress!) the nine Muses actually emerge from a painting in the museum and come to Theodore’s aid, following him back to school. He wishes them away, but by custom they cannot leave until they have inspired Theodore.
Will the Muses succeed in inspiring Theordore, or simply in driving him crazy?
Here is the flier for the upcoming production of WAR OF THE WORDS, June 13 at
6:30 pm. (EDIT: The show will start at 7pm, despite what the flier says!) The musical is a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.”
The show is being presented by the 4th Grade Student Actors League of Arts and Drama (“SALAD”) of Central Elementary School, East Hanover, NJ. If you would like to attend, the street address is 400 Ridgedale Avenue. (Drop us a note and we can set you up.)
This is the fourth production of the show, and Thompson and Russell have identified two spots where a new song is needed. The team is hard at work getting everything prepared!
