Created by me, Jack G. Maynard, Jr., musician and writer. I was involved in a yearly tree planting school program in Grand Rapids, MI and wrote two songs for it: Trees Breathe Life and Pass These Gifts Along. That inspired me to write a Musical for 4th through 8th grades. It has been performed at about 100 schools with always positive feedback. My goal was to make it easy to preform. It has been sidelined for the last 12 years and I'm excited to make it it available again. It's available on my website: http://www.livingearthpublishing.com. There you can find everything you need to produce the musical. You can order it in digital or hard copy formats: Director's Manual, Actors Books, Performance Music Tracks CD, Musical Soundtrack CD. and other items. It is a perfect for Spring Earth Day or Summer Music Camps as well as children's theaters.
