About: Here's a secret recipe for success: five easy-to-learn songs, four short scenes, and a famous folk tale. Result? A musically nutritious, no-fuss performance for elementary-aged performers! When a group of weary travelers creates a delicious meal from some unexpected ingredients, the gloomy citizens of Old Town ask, "Who ever heard of soup from a stone?" Teach your students that "the greatest gift is to share" with this character-building mini-musical. Appropriate all year long.

Kit Includes: Directors Book & ShowTrax CD


Casting
Cast List:

NOTE: All characters in this musical may be male or female. Please change gender of script and lyrics as needed throughout this production. 

  • NARRATORS: Two Narrators are indicated in the script. Narrators may read their lines out of a giant book(s) with "Famous Folk Tales" on the cover. They may alternate on either side of the stage, or be located downstage right, perhaps on stools. For a larger cast, these lines (20 in all) may be shared by additional narrators. Or a different pair of narrators may be used for each scene. 
  • TOWNSPEOPLE: Any number. Eight townspeople are featured with speaking lines. Again, different performers may be used in each scene. Dressed in comfortable everyday clothing: jeans and overalls, bright-colored dresses with aprons, etc. Some performers may be dressed as adults, others as children. 
  • TRAVELERS: Three travelers are featured with speaking lines. Additional travelers may be added as desired, and spoken lines may be divided further. Dressed in rather ragged and dusty clothing. Optional backpacks and sacks made from rustic-looking cloth, such as burlap.
