What level is the play for? The play can be seen by students of all ages and levels that have had a minimum of approximately 150 hours of English instruction. The workbook has activities to work in class with different aspects of the English language. The play presents various elements that make it enjoyableto all students, regardless of the age group. We suggest listening to the songs in class and working with the plot before seeing the play (especially with young children).
