Musical theatre production of I Know Me (pt 5/ 6)
We see Jake and Sidney, the characters we were introduced to in Part 1 of the musical, and the Spirit and her Sprites, who were introduced in Part 2, in the Spirit's world – the land of music, song and dance which is a computer generated virtual world. While singing Journey to the Lonely Place, we see the Spirit and her Sprites leading Jake and Sidney towards the Lonely Place, where Sidney and Jake will confront the loneliness they both feel. Journey to the Lonely Place is sung by the Spirit and Sprites, with a line sung by Sidney and Jake, that highlight the issue they're being guided to resolve. We see Jake, Sidney and two lonely characters, singing the song I’m Lonely, in a barren landscape. The Spirit enters and transforms the scene from one of loneliness to one of friendship. We see Sidney, Jake, the Spirit and the two other characters sing the reggae based song Say Hello. First broadcast in the Learning Zone on BBC2 in April 2012 as part of the programme Make a Musical.
Written and produced for secondary SEN schools and providing a template for teachers and pupils to stage their own version of the production. The Sprite characters offer schools the opportunity to cast across, and include all year-groups; including primary, if they have younger pupils. I'm Lonely provides an opportunity for individual solo lines, or can be sung with several cast members to a part. Say Hello is based on call and response. Its upbeat rhythm provides an opportunity for dance and choreography. Supplementary 'how-to' clips (#13698, 13699, 13700, 13701 and 13702) provide suggestions and ideas to support teachers and pupils developing a production of the musical in school.
