Live Interactive Performance

An Interactive Musical Program for Children Ages 2 to 7

The Peddler

Regina, Lucas, and WilliamThis entertaining and educational program is designed to engage children in an interactive musical/narrative performance of Caps for Sale and its sequels, More Caps for Sale, and Caps for Sale and the Mindful Monkeys.

The Caps for Sale Musical Narrative Program goes beyond everyday storytelling. Children become immersed in this presentation. Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer (co-author with Slobodkina of More Caps for Sale and Caps for Sale and the Mindful Monkeys) portrays the characters of the monkeys and Pezzo the Peddler through reading, acting, and singing. Children are encouraged to participate in the presentation through song, dance, and mimicry, or to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

The production is simple but high-energy. After the presentation, children have opportunities to ask questions and talk about what makes the Peddler unique and how each of us is special and different in our way.

The program encourages 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
