YOUNG CHILDREN’S COMEDY WITH SONG. (Ages 4-6 years.) This play offers a fun way to introduce drama to young children. Parents can read the script aloud as children act out their parts, and children can learn their lines visually by coloring in the included coloring book. A bug, a slug, a fly, an ant, and a bee find a piece of discarded gum on the side of a road. One by one, the insects get stuck in the sticky gum. Can they free themselves before the toad wakes up from his nap? For large school productions, children can wear corresponding bug costumes and sing in a bug chorus. The length of the play depends upon the number and length of songs included in the show.
