Same But Different
"I just wanted to let you know that my 5th grade performed their production of Same But Different this week to rave reviews. Our entire lower school, plus a few middle and upper-school students came to celebrate with my students. The content is so appropriate for children in these pre-adolescent years. The play prompted many wonderful discussions among the teachers and students, and the parents were delighted. All in all, this was a truly terrific experience for all involved." —Susan F. LaPalombara, Lower School Drama, The Episcopal Academy, Merion, Pa.
Musical. By Caleen Sinnette Jennings.

Cast: 7m., 14w., chorus of either gender. Young teens love plays about their own lives. This musical intersperses songs and raps with scenes about the bittersweet challenges of being young. Growing up sometimes seems so adversarial: the in-group vs. the out-group; boys vs. girls; parents vs. children; all facing issues of race, culture, looks, popularity. Award-winning playwright Caleen Sinnette Jennings dramatizes these conflicts with honesty and a sense of humor. In a particularly poignant scene, three hearing youngsters learn that being deaf doesn't mean you can't be an awesome soccer player. In another, boys who pride themselves on being jocks learn they aren't alone in having a sneaky affection for a teddy bear. Same But Different provides enough characters to showcase your entire group. Individual scenes are ideal to use as a class activity. Simple staging. Approximate running time: 50 minutes.

Notes
