This play is adapted from a well-known Bible story. The text begins with dramatic notes, offering suggestions on costumes, staging, music, and cast formation. Because there are crowd scenes and many characters, it may be successfully staged by both large and small classes. As is typical in third grade, there is a chorus in the play consisting of groups of children, but individual characters speak their own lines and develop their characters. The play will be about 35 minutes, depending on the music, movement, and dancing that may be incorporated into the drama.
