RUN TIME, SET, COSTUMES, AND PROPS
WORD POWER run time can be 30 to 50 minutes. The Student Presentations are like building blocks. You may mix and match whatever combo you like - or use them all!
WORD POWER takes place in an current day classroom. The set can be just chairs, desks with chairs, or tables with chairs for students.
For very large groups, students can sit in the audience and come to the stage as they present. In this case, Mr./Mrs. Martin would treat the whole audience as the class of students.
Mr./Mrs. Martin may have a portable lectern (on casters) and/or portable white board and marker.
WORD POWER needs no special costuming. You may pepper standard classroom wear with Scout/Cheerleader uniforms to help define characters.
PROPS are not necessary but may be used as you see fit. They can be preset under chairs, or students may enter with backpacks for prop storage. "Flingin’ those Words" props - grad cap, party blower, small flag, stuffed Dalmatian, plastic fireman hat, nurse hat/syringe/lab coat, straw hat, dollar bills.
