Chinese New Year - Musical Play for ages 5-10

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 £22.95, 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.............
