From the Mixed-Up Files of

Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Grades 3-6

It is 1967 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) in New York City. Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler is a collector of fine art, facts, figures, and secrets. She narrates the action of ArtsPower’s exciting musical play through a letter she is writing to her lawyer, whom she calls Saxonberg. 

After she learns about the adventures of Claudia and Jamie Kincaid, two children who have run away from home to live at The Met for a few days, Mrs. Frankweiler needs her lawyer to change her last will and testament. Among her many files, she will now include the story of how Claudia and Jamie run away, hide out and sleep over at The Met, investigate whether a statue called Angel was carved by Michelangelo, and, in the end, become a terrific sister and brother team. 

ArtsPower's fast-paced musical is accompanied by a comprehensive Activity Guides that includes interviews with two members of the cast, an art history activity, information about the Renaissance, learning to act in a scene from the show, and playwriting.

The show's themes focus on family, friendship, self-discovery, and adventure.

The Monster Who Ate My Peas

Grades PK-2

Based on the multi award-winning picture book written by Danny Schnitzlein and illustrated by Matthew Faulkner, ArtsPower’s musical tells the funny and poignant story of Danny, a young boy who doesn’t want to eat his peas. When a crafty monster appears from underneath his kitchen table and offers to eat those pesky peas, Danny is ready to make a deal with the monster. 

In return for eating Danny’s peas each night, the monster wants one of Danny’s possessions. The first night, it’s Danny’s soccer ball. The next night, it’s his bike. But, when the monster raises the stakes, will Danny make the right decision to refuse the monster? 

ArtsPower’s wonderfully-crafted, fast-paced musical tells a relatable tale of facing our fears, developing character, and overcoming obstacles. 

ArtsPower's high energy musical is accompanied by our dynamic Activity Guide that includes an animated read along, learn to sing and dance videos, an interview with the author, actor interviews, behind the scenes video, and printable student activity sheets.
