EVERYONE in "Miracle" (which is almost the entire cast) needs a separate costume!
Little Kids (groups Red, Orange, Yellow, or Green) can wear pretty much anything they would wear to a kids' birthday party. It should be easy to get on and off since after the number they will need to change into their school uniform for the rest of the show.
BIG KIDS (Blue and Purple) are playing adults in this number. For the boys, a man's sport jacket or coat (even if its too big) over their unifrom pants/shirt will work fine. For the girls, a coat or a dress they can throw over their uniform (it must cover the unifrom completely) will work. Or, they can change out of the adult costume and into the school uniform after the number, but it has to be easy to take on and off.
Here are links to purchase your child's costume from Amazon.
