Homeroom the Musical
Homeroom the Musical was a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved. The cast of seventh and eighth graders were able to identify with the characters, their feelings, desires, and fears. The musical numbers gave all the cast members an opportunity to showcase their singing and dancing talents.  The stories that these characters shared through the songs and dialogue were at times funny and other times poignant but they were always very real. We were also lucky enough to have Andrea Green come see the production and have a heartfelt discussion with the cast about what the production meant to them. I highly recommend this musical.

One of the best adaptable large cast musicals I have done
In my 13 years of directing musicals I finally found a musical that is unique, entertaining and meaningful.l I had the absolute pleasure of directing Homeroom, the musical this past winter. I worked with 18 5th graders and we all had a wonderful experience. Despite having to choose the play before I knew who was auditioning, I felt comfortable with the script from the start. The play was very adaptable and was able to fit our unique needs of 16 girls and 1 boy. The music was not only entertaining and catchy, but easy to learn. We were only able to work with only a pianist and we have no regrets about that decision. The music is written well enough where we didn’t need anything more. The sets could be minimal or very elaborate, depending on your space and budget. The topics discussed in the play were very relevant to middle school students, and allowed us as a school to speak openly about very important issues that students of all ages face. Bullying is such a relevant topic these days and this play helps students become more confident and sent a wonderful message about standing up for yourself and accepting those people who are different. I noticed, that as the rehearsal process progressed, there were less cliques and a lot more positive interactions between the students. Not only did the students relate and learn from the play, but the audience members did as well. Several parents spoke to me about how this play was a great jumping off point to talk to their children about the struggles of being a kid. There is not a single person out there, who couldn’t relate to one of the many topics discussed.

This is the musical to pick if you are look for a show that is adaptable, unique, fun and a true learning experience. It is not hokey, or cheesy in any way, like a lot of musicals with messages are. It delicately touches on important topics that anyone of any age can relate to. It was better for us to choose this, over a “well known” musical because it allowed myself and the students to create our own piece of work, not just produce a copy of a show done a bunch of times. The students took real ownership of this piece and were incredibly proud of the unique show they performed. The kids and I will be singing these songs for a long time and will remember the lessons we have learned to help us get through some hard times.  Without a doubt I will do this play again, or any of Andrea Green’s work, in the future with other groups.

Homeroom the Musical
The kids loved this musical as well as the audience!  The message was extremely powerful and brought my students together as a group.  The only thing I wish was that there were parts written for the orchestra!  My pit had to write their own parts...I am blessed to have such amazing musicians!

Would produce this one, if only there were parts for a pit orchestra!
