NEW EDITION OF THIS TIMELY MUSICAL, NOW WITH UPDATED SCRIPT! Johnny Appleseed, one of American folklore's most colorful characters, comes to life in this lively, six song mini-musical. Johnny's extraordinary life and love for all living things is told as a modern day Grandpa reads a bedtime story to his grandchildren. The action moves from present to past and the audience learns of Johnny's boyhood dream to cross the wilderness and then follow him as he plants apple seeds throughout the land. Johnny Appleseed's sincere appreciation of nature and his thoughtful consideration of others serve as the underlying theme for this musical play and a wonderful teaching tool and example for young people as well as audiences of all ages. The 35-minute musical can be successfully performed in a wide variety of settings and the cast size is very flexible and appropriate for a wide range of grade levels. The accompaniment track is beautifully orchestrated to enhance the performance setting.
