Based on the book by Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat. This one-hour show is appropriate for students in Grades PreK-2. Chicken Dance portrays the story of Marge and Lola, two friendly and determined chickens who set out to win the Barnyard Talent Show and its first prize: two tickets to see Elvis Poultry in concert. There is only one problem: Marge and Lola are unable to figure out their act for the show. Marge and Lola are not the only act vying for the first prize. Mac the Duck, the barnyard bully, is entered in the show and continually reminds his chicken friends that they have no chance of winning since they can’t even figure out their act. In the past, the ducks have always aced the contest, but this year Marge and Lola have set out to take first prize. Elsie, the barnyard’s sweetest cow, decides that she, too ,will compete in the talent show, even though she is awfully shy and must somehow summon the courage to compete in the contest. Colorful scenes of Marge, Lola and their fellow competitors trying out their different acts, exciting choreography, and the appearance of Elvis Poultry, the coolest performer around, make Chicken Dance a compelling and entertaining musical romp through the barnyard.
