Grade 3–8—Filled with lavish color photos of Disney theater productions, this eye-catching volume has clever chapter titles, beginning with "Overture," which tells about "styles of theaters" and "kinds of shows." In "Act One" and "Act Two," aspects of the front and back of the house are discussed, including the marquee, the box office, props, special effects, and so on. Interspersed throughout the facts and photos are "Stage Notes," where bits of trivia are doled out, usually about Disney productions and the performers in them. Although not written specifically about commercial theater, another fun introductory book for students, with its added bonus of games and activities, is Deborah Dunleavy's The Jumbo Book of Drama (Kids Can, 2004).—Betty S.
