Drama KS3 / KS4: Musical theatre production of I Know Me (pt 5/6)
The fifth part in a 6-part musical theatre production in which 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.
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 then see Sidney, Jake, the Spirit and the two other characters sing the reggae-based song, 'Say Hello'.
This clip is from the series Make a Musical.
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 song '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. It's upbeat rhythm provides an opportunity for dance and choreography.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Drama at KS3, KS4/GCSE in England and Northern Ireland.
Also Drama at KS4 and GCSE in Wales and 2nd Level, 3rd Level and National 4 in Scotland.
