Performances are sung in English and are designed for today’s young audiences. Teachers also receive a resource guide in advance of the performance. A designated school facilitator responsible for preparing students and confirming all details is required. Preliminary preparation and facilitator coaching begins in early September.
Student actors from grades 4–8 perform in supporting speaking and acting roles. Actors must be chosen and lines memorized at least two weeks before the assembly. Schools can also include a chorus. The final performance is attended by the entire school.
