All proceeds from this record after expenses will go to earthquake relief in Japan.
This is a collection of songs from a Hamlet musical I wrote with my wife's second-grade class. She cut the original script down to about 30 pages and the kids and I wrote a bunch of great songs. We wanted you to hear them so we made this quickie album with the help of Dean Jones, Dave Schramm, and a couple of the Deedle Deedle Dees.
Every download of this album includes the script we used for the show. If you're a teacher, you're welcome to use this script and any of this music in your classroom to help you teach Hamlet.
If you'd like to perform any of these songs for profit, send me an e-mail (thedeedledeedledees AT yahoo DOT com). I'll probably say no but it will depend on the situation.
Dean Jones recorded all the instrumental tracks and backing vocals and produced the record. www.dogonfleas.com
Dave Schramm recorded the kid vocals. Check out his podcast radiofreesongclub.com
