‘Script is amusing with lots of food for thought. Most of our 60 year threes had speaking parts. They found the script and song words fun and easy to learn. A fantastic show for which we received AMAZING reviews! ’
- LW, UK.
From the writer of Zoom! and The Magical Christmas Box comes a brand new Christmas musical for Primary Schools. Creepy Crawly Christmas is a delightfully different look at the Nativity - through the eyes of a caterpillar!
Wilfred is the slowest, silliest caterpillar in the school and the butt of his classmate's jokes. So when a star falls from the sky and lands on him, he decides to prove himself by discovering what this mystery object is and return it to where it came from. Of course, this is no ordinary star, and Wilfred's quest becomes more important than he ever imagined! Will he succeed? Will he earn his wings and become a butterfly? We follow his journey as he meets a host of crazy creatures and learns about the true meaning of Christmas. This colourful, magical tale is bursting with bugs, including dotty old ladybirds, an army of ants, a squadron of RAF dragonflies, a hairy scary spider and four rather familiar Liverpudlian beetles!
The festive fun is brought to life with 8 superb songs that will have everyone singing along, and a humorous script which hides a twist at the end. Flexible casting allows parts for a small class or an entire school, and beautifully arranged backing tracks are available on CD with and without vocals. A superb DVD of Creepy Crawly Christmas is also now available.
