Gorgeous simple play with songs to sing along to. The price includes a free performance licence for schools. Great fun to act, sing and dance- and SO EASY to perform. Normally £24.95, this play is on special offer with the TES! The play is based on a famous story from China. It is thousands of years old and yet it is still told today to celebrate Chinese New Year. (It is also suitable for any time of year.) Long ago in Ancient China, the new year was fast approaching. Twelve animals were arguing. There was a dog, a pig, a rat, an ox, a tiger, a hare, a snake, a horse, a ram, a monkey and a cockerel. They thought the New Year should have a name. They were arguing because each animal wanted the year to be named after himself. And so, the Gods decreed they should have a race…

Moses and the Great Escape from Egypt (Musical Play for Schools 50 min)

An exciting original large cast musical drama about Moses. It starts with Moses as a baby and tells how he fled from Egypt, how he met God and returned to tell the king to set the Jews free. Pharaoh's refusal to do so results in 10 awful plagues. The story ends with the triumphant crossing of the Red Sea and the final surrender of Pharaoh. Eleven lovely songs bring this story to life as you've never heard it before! Enjoy the amazing sound effects too! A sure hit with children and parents. Plenty of action, dance and movement for a flexible large cast of young actors aged 5-13. Provided with vocal tracks, backing tracks, editable script and free performance licence for schools. The script is simple and written in straightforward English, so it could be used as a resource for EAL.. Perfect for an end-of-term show lasting 45-50 min, or to bring a series of RE lessons alive. This is a very interesting, unique, keenly priced drama resource which is fabulous fun to act, sing and dance.

Joseph's Coat of Many Colours

(0)
A large cast musical for primary and middle schools. Simple, attractive and quick to stage. Great new songs which are easy and fun to learn. (No connection with Andrew Lloyd Webber) This is a new musical which has been eagerly received by teachers and pupils in several countries. Duration 45-50 min. Our version of the Old Testament story, for ages 7-13! This is a wonderful and exciting modern play to act, sing and dance. 55 mins. Price includes Script, songs, backing tracks, score, songsheets and performance licence. No musical ability needed-very nice colourful show. 10 GREAT SONGS, SCORE, LYRICS, ADAPTABLE SCRIPT and FREE LICENCE. National Press Review: REVIEW OF OUR MOST POPULAR PLAY :Joseph! Joseph’s Coat of Many Colours is a musical play for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. It is a wonderfully refreshing children’s version of the classic tale and musical – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The pupil friendly script and music should become a well-used and well-loved version of this popular story. From the excellent melodic and catchy songs, to the well balanced and easily readable script, this 55 minute production enthused and encouraged children to present a high-quality piece of theatre to parents and the wider community. For a modest cost, the package is available (via download) for up to three performances in a school or club setting. Pupils in Year 5 learnt and performed the show during the spring term and performances were well-received by both child and adult audiences. Such is the simplicity of the script, a mixed ability class can be, and were, allocated the roles and learnt all the songs. The number of character parts is perfect for a class production and there is some variation on this. The play could also be performed by a drama group or even all Key Stage 2 classes who could contribute to different parts of the play. The product could justifiably represent aspects of both the literacy and music schemes of work in school. The product is easy to download via a broadband connection (the music is also available on a mail order CD-ROM at a small additional cost.) The script and sheet music can be printed off and / or saved on a PC. I would highly recommend the whole package to schools who are looking at putting on a musical performance. No musical expertise is needed to organise and direct the performance, though you may wish to involve a pianist and other staff to help with rehearsals, costumes, scenery, etc. The songs were simple and easy to learn and provided a smooth link with the script and stage action. Simple dances were performed, at times dictated by the script and some extra action was added. This package has proved to be a wonderful experience for pupils, which they will remember for a long time. Reviewed by “Schoolzone” website and The Independent Newspaper NB This play has no connection with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Play

Rapunzel and the Witch Who Would Not Share

This is a simple, lively 35 minute children’s musical based loosely on the traditional story of Rapunzel. A witch (and her sisters) trick a couple into parting with their baby. The sad couple leave the land, baby Rapunzel grows into a lovely girl with long hair. Jealous of Rapunzel’s beauty, the witches lock her out of sight in a tower. Rapunzel escapes to play with the animals in the garden, but they catch her. As a punishment, they cut off her hair and put a spell on the tower so that there are no doors and no stairs. The cut hair is woven into a rope. Each day, the witch climbs up the rope to bully the miserable lonely girl. One day, a prince is passing, and hears Rapunzel singing. Infatuated, he climbs the rope but falls into a bed of thorns and becomes blind and loses his memory. Some time later, as a beggar, he chances to meet Rapunzel once again. Her tears fall into his eyes and his blindness is cured. This is the beginning of a happy ending! Preview the script and songs at https://www.easyprimaryschoolplays.com

There's No-one Quite Like Me (Musical Play based on "The Ugly Duckling"

(0)
A memorable end-of-term show or special extended assembly for ages 5 –11 (Some parts can be narrated by the teacher when used solely with younger pupils.) Duration approx 40-50 min. Fantastic fun to act, sing and dance, but it also explores serious PSHE issues, especially bullying, homelessness and low self esteem. This heart-warming version of “The Ugly Duckling” is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic dark tale. Andersen himself was no stranger to hardship and non-acceptance, which is a theme that could be explored in its own right in school. Mother Duck’s last egg hatches into an ugly, ungainly creature, and he is ridiculed and bullied in the barnyard. He runs away to the marshes and is befriended by the wild ducks, but he loses track of them during the hunting season. A travelling gypsy shows kindness to him, and he is then taken in by a farmer and his family. The farmer’s cat, dog and hen become jealous and bully him so he runs away again. At last he matures into a beautiful swan, finds his self-esteem and flies to freedom. Fantastic- A nice simple show with great characters, and thought-provoking songs which are easy to learn. No musical ability needed- just sing and dance to the backing tracks. Brilliant for class lessons too. Comes with script, 12 songs, backing tracks, PowerPoint Presentation, Piano Score, follow-up work and 20 worksheets. School Performance licence included FREE. You can fully preview the script and songs on our https://www.easyprimaryschoolplays.com/ugly-ducking Please return to this TES site to get the YES discounted price
