Callie loves theater, but she’s never had the lead role. She’s determined to try out for her middle-school drama department’s production of Moon Over Mississippi. But she can’t really sing. Instead Callie is the stage crew, designing sets — and a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget seems pretty impossible! But with help from a surprising ally, Callie just might change everyone’s expectations in this fun and inspiring graphic novel by the bestselling author of Smile (Atheneum Books for Young Readers)
Callie loves theater, but she’s not an actress–she’s a set designer. With the help of her best friend, she plans to construct the sets for their middle-school production of Moon Over Mississippi. But when a series of mishaps threaten to ruin the show, Callie will have to figure out how to right a wrong before it ruins her friendships too.
This middle grade graphic novel introduces readers to the world of theater, especially its set designer, Callie. She’s a young girl who loves her school’s stage crew and wants to be in the school play this year. But Callie can’t sing, so instead she helps build sets for their productions. When there are no funds for a new set this year, Callie is determined to create one that looks like something from Broadway at an affordable price.
About Drama by Raina Telgemeier Book
Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school’s production of Moon Over Mississippi, she can’t really sing. Instead she’s the set designer for the drama department stage crew, and this year she’s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget.
But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen. And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!
It might be difficult to tell from the page count, but this is actually a graphic novel. I took this with me to the gym today, I’ve been going to the gym regularly for the first time in my life to try to correct some injuries instead of succumbing to surgery and I wanted to try to read while exercising.
So I thought I’d bring something easy that didn’t require a lot of concentration since they play music in the gym and I normally can’t read if I hear music with words, but there was just enough ambient noise for me to block it out. I actually rode one of the bikes and was sitting in the front row where people walk past and I probably couldn’t have chosen a more children’s-looking book
