Drama KS3 / KS4: Musical theatre production of I Know Me (pt 4/6)

The fourth in a 6-part musical theatre production in which we see the Spirit and her Sprites leading Jake and Sidney towards the Scary Place; where Sidney will confront the fear that’s at the root of his insecurities.

Sidney finds that dance and laughter make him fear less and back in the Spirit’s world we see Sidney talking about his feelings of self-doubt.

Teacher Notes

These clips could be used as inspiration and a template for teachers and students to stage their own version of the production.

Supplementary ‘how-to’ clips provide suggestions and ideas to support the development of a musical production.

The Sprite characters offer schools the opportunity to cast across, and include all year-groups - including primary, if they have younger pupils.

The inhabitants of the haunted house offer character acting parts, particularly the master of the house who solos in both Scary Tonight and The Spooky Step.

Both songs also include a sung ensemble part. The Spooky Step offers the opportunity for a choreographed dance piece.
