Caps Tales

This entertaining and educational program is designed to engage children in an interactive musical/narrative performance of Caps for Sale and its sequel Circus Caps for Sale.

During the performance, children:

  • Are asked the meaning of special words
  • Learn the Caps for Sale song and dance
  • Distinguish colors
  • Become active players in both stories using their creativity to play the parts of monkeys in the first book and circus band entertainers in the second

A discussion period follows. Children are asked what they thought of the Peddler’s adventures, why he is special and why they are special. The program is designed to encourage children to listen, learn and work together in a group environment. It requires children to react spontaneously to some events, mimic body movement, enhance muscle memory through learning light dance steps to the Caps song, and become active participants throughout both performances.*

Program Time: 45-60 minutes
