A full and original primary show play script, which can be used in a variety of teaching and performance areas.
The Holiday family are searching for the perfect means of travel to their sunny vacation in India and 'High Flyers' tour rep, Miss Deplane, is just the person to help them out. She leads them on a whistle stop journey through time, meeting some great pioneers of flight along the way, in order to find the ideal travel option. With wax and feather wings, hot air balloons and experimental aeroplanes on the menu, the Holiday family are relieved by the more modern choice that is eventually offered to them. A class assembly for ages 7 and over, with an entertaining and informative angle on how flight has been adapted throughout history.
