Join the annual AmeriKids Convention in progress as delegates Yacky Doodle (Convention Chairman), Miss Dorian (Historian), Pip Squeak (from Rhode Island) and others learn about the faith that made our country great. Hear seldom-heard words from such historical figures as Benjamin Franklin, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, and learn of the early 18th-century AmeriKids’ faith in the Bible, in prayer, in God’s protection and in salvation through Christ.
Ages: 1st grade and up with several songs easy enough for preschoolers Speaking parts: minimum of 13 with optional adult parts Solos: minimum of 8 Set: convention setting with patriotic decor Costumes: street clothes or Amerikids T Shirts with optional character costumes
Kathie’s Note: I love this musical! It is simple, but impressive – works really well in summer music camps - patriotic, but with humor and spiritual meat - and kids memorize Chronicles 7:14 (“If my people, called by my name will humble themselves and pray…”) plus the names of all 50 states in “Sing the States.”!
