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.

The biblical story of DANIEL IN THE LIONS’ DEN presented as short musical (15-20 min) for ages 7-13 The story: Daniel is an official in Babylon and is well liked by King Darius. The other officials are jealous of Daniel. They trick Darius into signing a law making it illegal to pray to any God except him. Daniel continues to pray to his own God, and Darius sadly has to have him arrested and thrown into the lions' den. Darius is upset by this and he cannot eat, sleep or be entertained by his exotic dancers. However, God protects Daniel and the lions do not harm him. The tricksters are thrown into the lions' den instead. This is a wonderful enjoyable musical play supported by three great original songs and an exotic dance number.

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.
