Common Core Specific Study Guides with pre and post lessons with Extension Activities
Script and Lyrics by: Robert Kauzlaric  •  Music by: Paul Gilvary and William Rush
Based on the hilariously popular book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, the play begins where the book leaves off with the trial of the character, Alexander T. Wolf. The audience becomes part the jury and gets to decide if Al is guilty or not guilty! There’s a tough as nails judge with a weakness for musicals, a fast-talking reporter pig, a smooth-talking lawyer pig, and other fun characters who take the stand. Al is a soulful charmer with a love of gourmet cooking, but can a lone wolf get a fair trial? And will anyone believe that all the "huffing and puffing" was really a simple story about a sneeze and a cup of sugar? This show fits in nicely with lessons about: bullying and telling the truth.

This is a bright, snappy one hour musical about Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Audiences will enjoy this portrayal of his determination to be the best despite seemingly insurmountable racism. Characters include Rachel, the girl Jackie met in college and later married; Branch Rickey, the owner of the Dodgers who dared to sign Robinson, and Satchel Paige, the great black pitcher who acts as narrator and plays various other roles throughout the play. Robinson’s use of nonviolence and unquestionable talent challenged the rules of segregation, and therefore impacted American life. This show fits in perfectly with lessons in bullying.
