Let’s Go to the Farm

 

Getting Started in English

 

The show Let's Go to the Farm
The farm animals are the delight of the children!

Let’s Go to the Farm is a play totally performed in English and aimed at kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd-grade students.

A visually appealing set lets children’s imagination run wild and takes them to a farm where anything can happen.

During the play, children are surprised by props magically coming to life in front of their very eyes.

Indeed, a fun lamb cartoon is drawn on a drawing board, and suddenly it moves the eyes and even talks!

In another scene, a length of rope wondrously becomes a cow and its milk magically turns into a big white handkerchief.

A scene from the play Let's Go to the Farm
“Do you want to sing along with me?”, Ruskus asks.

From beginning to end, Let’s Go to the Farm is plenty of surprises, e.g. the sudden appearance of Nock the Duck, a crazy duck on wheels which rush among the kids looking for water and making them laugh out loud.

There is also time for tenderness; children meet a cute white bunny, and they join Ruskus in singing the old American nursery rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb.

In brief, a beautiful show in English plenty of cute animals, magic, music, and clowning!
