Wonderful Junior Musical!

By St. Michael's College

The songs in this musical are fantastic. Children loved singing them, as they are very catchy and easy to learn. I did this with Grades 2 and 3 and had just over 100 students on stage. Created an 'olde world' village scene (butcher, baker, candlestick maker) and got the rats to have a rat sock glove puppet on each hand to triple the numbers for that overwhelming effect. Children loved it. We used the piano score for live music together with a drummer and bass guitarist. Worked a treat!


Another great job by Out of the Ark – well done!

By Peter - Sheffield Music Hub

I went to see a production of “The Piper” at a school in Sheffield last night. Apart from the fact that the performance was cracking (it really was!), I thought the show itself was really well written. The music was entirely suitable for the age range of children – with challenging part singing, appropriate range that stretched the voices just enough, and great opportunities for everyone to get involved.


Brilliant

By Helen

I've used this twice in two different schools and both times it was perfect. Beautiful solos, catchy songs and great script that's easy to adapt to more or fewer actors.


Brilliant

By The Director!

I thoroughly recommend this play. Our 23 Year 4 children loved rehearsing the play and performed it with fantastic enthusiasm to the whole school and later their parents. The superb songs were easy to learn and the solos were an excellent opportunity to celebrate the more confident and gifted singers. The script is easy to change and add parts to suit one's needs. The children and their siblings are still singing the songs!


Fantastic show

By Chilly

We adapted this for only 8 children and it worked a treat, they all really enjoyed the songs, even the youngest who is only 4.

By Howth Rd.

3rd and 4th class performed this musical for (our) parents at the end of the school year and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all - children and parents. The children enjoyed all the hard bits as well!!- learning the script and rehearsing same.All of us had a fantastic and enjoyable time both learning and performing this musical.


brill musical

By celine

Great musical, kids loved doing it and parents highly enjoyed the end result :) Really recommend it.. i did it with kids ranging from 8 years to 10 years!


Thanks for this fabulous production.

By Luby

I chose this for a group of 40 year 2 children to perform last year and it was a great success. There is a good mixture of up-beat and gentle songs. The children even managed the three part harmony in one song. We had a solo from the lame child and put in a couple of dances. nThe children had great fun and loved the songs and the amusing script. It was easy to direct and the backing tracks were great. I only hope I can find a musical to match it for this year!
