Last-minute inspiration for Christmas shows is at hand with two ready-made festive musicals from Frantic Productions. The Seven Little Penguins is suitable for five to eight-year-olds and features the adventures of baby bird Goggles, who is left alone in the igloo when the family goes fishing. The Magical Nativity Tableau is an alternative to the traditional telling of the Nativity tale: contemporary children travel back in time to Bethlehe to meet shepherds, wise men and camels. It is suitable for five to seven-year-olds.
Both musicals can accommodate between 30 and 60 children and both provide speaking parts and dance opportunities.
