Some starving soldiers find themselves in a village where nobody knows how to share! With a little guile and ingenuity, the soldiers teach the villagers the joys of sharing. This a a lovely 15 minute musical play with one delightful original song. Written for ages 6-11, but is simple enough for children with SEN or EAL because the script is held together by narration. CAST: 3 Narrators, 4 soldiers, 2 peasants- female and male, 2 children, 2 women, barber, tailor, cobbler, mayor, other villagers, singers, drummer (optional) Props needed: drum, big pot hung over a “fire”, some stones, big spoon, salt, pepper, carrots, cabbage, onions, beef, turnips, parsley, celery, barley, milk, other vegetables, shaving mug, “razor”, and shaving soap, towel, stool, bowls, spoons, bread, wine, goblets.

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.

Daniel- Tamer of Lions (Musical based on Daniel in the Lions' Den)

(0)
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. No musical ability is needed if you use the backing tracks to sing along to.
