Book to Bravo!

Create an operetta inspired by a story or fable from class curriculum. Available in English or Spanish.

Students engage with curriculum in new ways as they bring literature to life through music and theater. Using interpretative skills and their own imaginative voices, they write scenes and songs, design and rehearse their work, and perform for their classmates in a culminating performance.
