Entertainment and Learning. Not only is musical Sarah, Plain and Tall great entertainment but the CD
serves as a wonderful complement to school reading of the book. The musical brings added dimensions to
the characters of the book and the lessons of life: learning to accommodate to people and circumstances;
teamwork within families; determination to accomplish difficult tasks; and the power of perseverance and love.
Study Guides. TheatreworksUSA, the non-profit organization that produced the original Sarah, Plain and Tall
musical in New York City, has produced a Study Guide for the musical which is available at the TheatreworksUSA
web site. The guide facilitates the planning of lessons around the musical show. Teachers and parents can
correlate the musical show with topics as varied as history, literature, science, art, interpersonal
relationships and social issues. The TheatreworksUSA’s educational professionals have developed a wide
range of pre- and post-show discussion topics and activities which are carefully crafted to the recommended
grade level of the show.
