Ye-Ha! squeezes all the fun and adventure of the old west into a wonderfully wild musical comedy. Something stinks in Splodge City - and it ain't the drains! Mad Dog McNut and his gang are running wild and Wilbur Hubbard, cowardly cook at the Fordoor Saloon, lands the job no-one wants-Sheriff of Splodge. Luckily for Wilbur, Billie-Jo Brisket and her faithful steed Lightning roll into town to lend a hand, and suddenly the race is on to save the town. It's a rootin- tootin tale of crazy cowboys, barmy baddies, masked heroes and hidden gold!

Ye-Ha! mixes comical characters, a side-splitting script and sparkling songs in a musical that will make your cast shine and your audience go wild in a western way! With parts for between 30 and 50 children plus unlimited chorus parts, this show will suit any size school or group.

A CD featuring dazzling, fully orchestrated backing tracks with and without vocals is available for rehearsals and performances. Age guide 7 to 12 years.

Approximate Duration: 60 minutes

As a general guideline, the performance licence fees for Junior Versions range between £10 and £30 for each performance and usually depend upon the size of your school (for example, £10 per performance if 1-49 pupils on school roll, £15 for 50-99 pupils, £20 for 100-149 pupils, £25 for 150-199 pupils and £30 per performance if there are more than 200 pupils on school roll).
