Ever been to the town of Mozzarella? You have if you’ve been to a live production of THE GREAT PIZZA CONTEST show or read the popular kids book by yours truly. It’s the cheesy tale of two feuding pizza makers, Vincent Van Dough and Leonardo Da Munchi. Vincent thinks the dough is the most important part of the pizza, Leonardo believes it’s the sauce! When everyone in the town starts to argue, it’s up to Mayor Ann Chovi (and the audience) to help solve the problem.
For years, Kenny and I have been using this story for kids to transform audiences into wacky pizza makers, and for just as many years, we’ve had requests to turn the show and book into a readers theater script so that kids can perform it themselves. Well…(drum roll please)…it’s finally here! We have a free Pizza Show readers theater script and we want you to have it.
But wait there’s more….we also have fun activities to do with children including our new mustache craft so kids can easily transform into Vincent and Leonardo (yes, even the girls). PLUS, we have a brand, spankin’ new study guide to go along with the show and book that is filled with even more tasty learning activities, crafts, games, etc. You’ll find them ALL at our Pizza Show Activities Page. And if you’d like to order the book for reading with your children, it’s on sale here.
To celebrate we’re holding a VERY CHEESY CONTEST to win an autographed copy of The Great Pizza Contest book! Just leave a comment on the blog and/or comment on our Page Turner Adventures Facebook Page.
(You’ll be entered twice if you comment on the blog and facebook). What kind of comment? Well, you can tell us your favorite pizza topping or weird pizza fact. Here’s one…Did you know that some popular pizza toppings in Japan are squid and mayo jaga (mayonnaise, potato and bacon)? Or tell us what you thought about the show and/or the book. You can also just say hi.
P.S. You’ll get an extra entry if you post a picture with a mustache!
Thanks for participating!
