What would we do with ourselves if the power was out over vacation? No television, no computers, no tablets or phones oh my! Well, the old toys have some suggestions set to the familiar holiday tune March of the Toys by Victor Herbert, with a fun new lyric by Ruthie Schram, sure to make the audience nostalgic for the good old days when entertainment was (permanently) unplugged!.
This novelty piece uses the familiar holiday tune March of the Toys by Victor Herbert, with a fun new lyric by Ruthie Schram. What would we do with ourselves if the power was out over winter vacation? No television, no computers, no tablets or phonesoh my! Well, the old toys have some suggestions for us that will make our audience nostalgic for those good old days when our entertainment was (permanently) unplugged! The song begins with speech chorus (as if the toys were talking to us). Be sure your diction is clear and adhere strictly to the rhythm and meter so your words can be understood. When the melody begins in m. 21, be sure you hear the pitch before you enter for pitch accuracy (there is no time to slide into the pitch) and be certain to observe the rests to give this section a lilting feel. In m. 52 (and like spots) the higher notes are cued; sing the lower notes if these notes are uncomfortable or the seventh jump from the D down to the E in the next measure is too difficult. (A rallentando appears in most of these measures to make this jump less problematic.) Most of all, smile! This fun piece should put a smile not only on the faces of the singers, but the audience as well!
