About Treachery At Traitors' Quay

  • Works as a 7-11 school production, but for smaller productions most suited to years 5 and 6
  • Words on Screen™ v2 CD ROM for easy rehearsing using highlighted lyrics synchronized with the music
  • Adaptable script for large-group performances
  • Suggested choreography videos available online

It's World War II and London isn’t safe. The five Dawson children are evacuated to the coast to stay at the large home of Eggin-Drake, Minister of Information. They're 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's too late? And just what IS the strange secret about the JAM?

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

But don't breathe a word about it to anyone else.

Sample ScriptView script sample
Cast ListView cast list
View staging suggestions

There are 43 speaking parts in total. To reduce the number of speaking parts to 34, have just two village evacuees, two Mums and two air-raid wardens and split the lines accordingly. With alteration of the script you could reduce the speaking parts further by having fewer land girls and just one Eggin-Drake daughter. The cast size can easily be increased by adding more non-speaking evacuees, Mums, air-raid wardens and Home Guard.

Annual Performance Licence Information

A current Annual Performance Licence is required to perform this musical to an audience (other than to pupils & staff).

  • You can purchase an Annual Performance Licence above (it is cheaper when purchased as part of a product pack).
  • The requirement for a licence is irrespective of whether admission charges are made.
  • An Annual Performance Licence covers any number of performances of a particular musical within 12 months of the date of ordering.
  • A new Annual Performance Licence would be required for any future performance(s) outside the date period printed on your current licence.

In addition, with so many of our musicals and nativities purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Your Annual Performance Licence will grant you permission to:

  1. Perform the work to an audience (other than pupils and staff in schools). A licence is required even if it is a 'free' performance and this is a worldwide copyright requirement.
  2. Install Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  3. Download Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  4. Continue to stream Words on Screen™ songs from your Out of the Ark Music online account on any device (beyond your free period) for the duration of the licence.

  6. Copy MP3 audio files onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  7. Upload digital content to an intranet or learning platform.
  8. Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Annual Performance Licence is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways. Please note that if you have purchased an Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product, this will cover the digital usage permissions in points 2-8 above for these products but does not cover the performance rights in point 1 – an Annual Performance Licence will still be required.

How To Renew

You can renew your Annual Performance Licences by simply logging into your account if you have one and going to your My Licences page. Pick the relevant licence and click RENEW.
