‘Brilliant! The children revelled in this entertaining and emotive presentation. With catchy songs and simple folk dance, Harvest Hope provided everyone with much food for thought!’
- SG, Head Teacher, Sussex.
Entertaining and yet poignant, this simple 20-minute presentation contrasts our plentiful harvest with the plight of children in the third world. Harvest Hope is a thought-provoking piece that's very appropriate the age group, helping them to begin working out their place in the world. The enhanced CD contains a slideshow presentation featuring images of children in Africa, Burma and India, which can be used to powerful effect during performance. (An ASSEMBLY PERFORMING LICENCE is included but please apply in the normal way if you plan to invite parents and members of the public. Full details of how to apply are included in the Director's Book.)
Jack and his friends are at the local Harvest Fair where Jack is unable to resist eating things from the Harvest Table! Most of the children realise how lucky they are to have so much, when others in the world are not so fortunate.
By contrast, Jack is more interested in feeding his own stomach and listening to the comedians. Eventually, after some persuading, he's ready to suggest how they might help others to help themselves.
The Director's Pack contains everything you need to stage a successful show including the Director's Book with director's overview, cast list, synopsis, notes, script, score, lyrics, helpful staging suggestions and performance licence application form. The included Enhanced CD contains full vocal demonstrations of the songs for the children to learn and separate instrumental backing tracks for performance use (no pianist required), along with printable files of the pupil script and lyric sheets (which allows you to print off as many copies as you require).
Suitable for ages 7 to 11.
