‘We have done it at school, it changed everybodys feelings about school, they loved it!’
- JL, St. Clement's, Ewell. Product Description
Do you remember your first day at school? Or the first time you were sent to see the head? What about first time you stood on the starting line clutching an egg and spoon? School is the place where we experience many ‘firsts’ and the most memorable can be re-lived through the songs and sketches in this hilarious, emotionally-charged new musical, which promises to deliver a bucket-load of laughs ... and tears!
Whatever else your children, their teachers and parents remember about school, this is a production they’ll never ever forget!
Book and CD Pack includes full script with staging tips, a CD of vocal tracks, backing tracks, continuity music and sound effects and a piano score with voice line and guitar chords.
Also available is a
CD-ROM of Digital Backdrops containing six images in the sequence they are required throughout the script, supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual hi-resolution JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes.
A free editable copy of the script in Word format is also available upon request when you purchase (and have paid for) this musical from us. Simply
e-mail us with your request, along with your name and address, and we will arrange for a copy of the script to be sent to you by e-mail. This will allow you to edit the script, if required, and to print as many copies of the script as you require.

Note – if you have a smaller cast, because most characters only appear in one scene, multiple parts can be played by a single child.
Alternatively, for extra-large cast numbers, many speaking parts have enough lines to be divided between any extra characters you want to create.
45 Speaking parts in order of appearance:
4 Interviewees – shaking in their shoes
Dad, Charlie, Milly & Mum – a family united in the trauma of a little girl’s first day at school!
Teacher – how difficult can teaching ‘telling the time’ be?
8 Children – let them be the judge of that
School Secretary – all that stands between naughty children and …
The Head – a mythical being in possession of devilish instruments of torture!
4 Children – awaiting their fate at her hands!
3 Parents – competing for the best camcorder-position at sports day!
