Discover:  Iconic leaders are people too * We are all a part of civic life * The power of music to set tone and describe

This high octane, multi-media-filled musical revue looks at the lives of the 44 people who have held the highest elected office in America–just in time for the 2016 elections!  Childsplay will lead a journey through the history of US Presidents by way of original rock, pop, and folk music. Revealing the humanity behind these larger-than-life individuals creates a curiosity about our executive leaders and empowers young people with the belief that they too can get involved in civic life.

Expect:  History and leadership concepts brought to life through song, such as “The Sons of Washington,” a driving rock anthem honoring Washington’s revolutionary idea of peacefully giving up power, or the jazz-inspired “Who In the World is Millard Fillmore?” celebrating some of the lesser-known Commanders in Chief.

Core Audience:  Grades 2 and up

Curriculum Connections: Music, Storytelling, Theatre, Ethics, Citizenship, Social Science (United States History, Presidents, Government, Civics)
