Overview


Synopsis

THE LOVE NOTE is a hilarious and touching tale of young Jessie's arrival at a new and outlandish school where there is a colorful and zany cast of characters. The ruthless bullies rule the cafeteria, the unique bookworms stick together behind their books, and the watchful Lunch Lady wields a mean soup ladle. Meanwhile there is a cute boy named Peter who looks Jessie's way during math class. Jessie sits alone in her new school cafeteria, but gains some comfort from the tiny pink love note that her mother packs into her lunch bag. As soon as the head bully Brittany steals her love note and bites into her tasty sandwich, Jessie knows she is in trouble. In the musical THE LOVE NOTE, Jessie and her lively imaginary friend, Airy, invent a spicy strategy to overcome the lunchroom bullies who pilfer her lunch and laugh at her precious love notes. Bolstered by her ever-growing hunger, and cheeky advice from Airy, Jessie decides to take "HOT LUNCH" preparation into her own hands. DANCING - The dancing for THE LOVE NOTE can range from Intense to Light depending upon the dancing talent of the cast and the intensity of the choreography. There are some opportunities for intense dancing, but it is not required. AGE RANGE - The characters are all playing roles between 9 and 12 years old *(except for the Lunch Lady) “ but it is a stylized musical (i.e. like œSpelling Bee) that can be cast using older actors.
