On December 22, 1620 everything changed for an ordinary rock when what started out as “A Speck In The Distance” from the shore became the Mayflower. How much do you know about Plymouth Rock? “1620-2020 is a long period of time. A lot can happen to a rock. There are indeed some “Secrets To Tell“.
In 1920 there was the “Voice Of Plymouth Rock” at the 300th Anniversary of the Landing of the Mayflower in Plymouth. 100 years later and the rock’s voice is heard once again. Only this time it sounds like 28 Plymouth elementary school students singing their hearts out. The album is coming out in October. We may even have a CD release party at the Mayflower Society House in the early Fall. Stay tuned!
If that’s not enough, wait until you hear what dancer Kaylee “Impavido” Millis of tv’s “So You Think You Can Dance” has planned for Plymouth area students. She’s choreographing the music and plans to teach “The Secrets of Plymouth Rock”. How exciting is that! What an incredible opportunity coming soon for America’s Hometown’s aspiring dancers!
Now, if we only had a playwright who could turn this into a musical. We do and and his name is Tyler Ferreira of Duxbury, Massachusetts. Tyler has written a wonderful script that’s perfect for elementary school students. The script incorporates enough roles for small to large classrooms. The music, script, dances, etc will be available for download. Students around the country will be able to enjoy “The Secrets of Plymouth Rock” at their school for the 2020 celebration.
With the 400th Anniversary of the Landing of the Pilgrims around the corner this is the perfect way for elementary students around the US to celebrate along with the students of Plymouth Massachusetts. The themes of the 400th celebration are innovation, exploration, self-governance, religious expression, immigration and thanksgiving. “The Secrets of Plymouth Rock” touches upon each theme in its own unique way, teaching our children Early American history through music.
