Apple the pony is very confused. She has found a lovely hat, but cannot seem to find the right season to wear it in. Everyone is relying on Einstein the cow to work it out, but will Goat eat it first?

Join the chilly chickens, Buster the howling puppy, the crazy party pigs and all the other animals as they take us through their favourite seasons in this exciting musical. With a humorous script full of small speaking parts and larger-than-life characters, and seven catchy, fun songs, this is the perfect infant production for any time of the year.

Leavers Musicals

Many schools mark the end of Year 6 with a Leavers' Musical. Choose one of our all-year-round pantos for fun, laughter and memorable tunes or a traditional tale for a rousing end-of-year show. Here's just a couple of our picks for you:

My World EasterTreachery At Traitors' Quay
Mary Green & Julie Stanley
Ages 7-11

It is World War II and London isn’t safe. The five Dawson children are evacuated to the countryside to the large home of Eggin-Drake, Minister of Information. As they are thrown in amongst all sorts of characters from the dishevelled Home Guard and air-raid wardens to the surly gamekeeper and the retired sea captain, it soon becomes apparent to the children that there is a spy in their midst. Determined to investigate, they head down to the Quay and snoop around the smugglers’ caves, but who is the spy? Can their plan be foiled before it is too late? And what is the secret about the JAM?

Join Duggie, Billy and Rosie as they head the investigation in this lively, dramatic mystery with an exciting script and seven fantastic songs.

Now with Words on Screen™ v2!

This modern Robin Hood musical is great fun to perform and will be enjoyed by children and parents alike. Robin Hood is back in town, along with Maid Marian, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Friar Tuck and Richard the Lionheart. Will he succeed in his plight to free the nation from the tyranny of the wicked Sheriff? Will King Richard return from the Crusades in time? And, will Maid Marian get her man?

A swashbuckling modern adaptation of the traditional Robin Hood story, Hoodwinked will have your audience 'booing', 'hissing' and 'cheering' with gusto.

Science classes, assemblies, collage-making and music lessons, nativity musicals and sports days; the school year has a rhythm all of its own. And though there are certainly some weeks that seem to drag on forever, before you know it those tiny, sticky-handed children are in Year 6 and getting ready to move on.

Click here to keep reading about some inspirational ways to celebrate your Year 6 leavers this year.
