Plastic Pirates - By Niki Davies
Captain Clingfilm, his parrot Polly Styrene and the pirates of The Plastic Pearl have no idea about the impact their plastic collecting habits (and not to mention their plastic disposing habits!) are having on the very seas on which they sail.
But when a mutiny on ship ousts the captain and his first mate, they end up on a desert island awash with bottles, packets and plastic bags. Even worse, their ‘message in a bottle’ rescue effort only makes it as far as the first swathes of rubbish.
Will this finally lead the pirates to listen to the sea birds and sea creatures beneath the waves? And once they have recognised the problem, are they prepared to do something about it?
With plenty of drama and laughs aplenty, not to mention an important environmental message for all of us, Plastic Pirates is perfect for 7-11 year olds, complete with eight brilliant new songs from esteemed writer Niki Davies. The ideal cast size for this musical is 50.
The Director's Book includes the full script with song lyrics, character list, curriculum-linked material and the sheet music piano score with vocal line and guitar chords. The accompanying CD includes all songs recorded with children’s voices and full backing tracks.
