Synopsis/ Teacher’s Notes : The books in a library are squabbling about who is the most important book in the library. And they.are grumbling because they are hardly ever taken off the shelves! They decide to go on a march to show everyone how important and valuable they are! The play features a lengthy song “The Book Parade” with unison singing, individual parts and plenty of marching action. All the children in the class should take part in the “book parade”. Depending on the size of the class, you must decide whether they do this all at once or in groups. On the CD…… Track 1: “The Book Parade” ……with vocals Track 2: “The Book Parade” ……without vocals Optional: You can customize this play, depending on the talents in the class. For instance, if you have a ballet “expert” he/she can dress as a ballet instruction book and give a brief ballet demonstration. The same applies to children who are “experts” in other areas e.g. football, swimming, other sports, photography, martial arts, boxing, scouting, playing the trumpet etc etc. Costumes/ Scenery : The children wear colourful “Sandwich boards” made of cardboard, depicting a range of fiction and non-fiction book covers, magazines, comics, newspapers etc. You need to make these in an art lesson beforehand! Alternatively, the children can carry “Big Books” around the stage. No scenery is needed, but a selection of “Big Books” could be displayed on stage.

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.
