Product Description

The Castaways Composed by Jill Gallina. For Accompaniment/Performance CD. Published by Shawnee Press Inc. (Catalog # 35002993, UPC: 747510045441)

Grounded in historical fact, the The Castaways' plot, delivered through flashbacks, reveals the struggles of immigrant children on the streets of New York City in the early 1900s. Ultimately the happy endings for these “castaways” takes them to homes with Midwestern families. Their poignant stories sensitize today's children to the stark realities of homelessness and is a fitting vehicle for a fundraiser for homeless children and shelters.

Eight fabulous songs help tell the significant story of this profoundly researched musical. Two voicings (2-part and 3-part mixed) are available for your program. Performance time: approx. 50 minutes. Grades 4-9.
