‘We have done it at school, it changed everybodys feelings about school, they loved it!’
- JL, St. Clement's, Ewell.
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. The CD-ROM pack version replaces the wire-bound A4 book and includes the script and score in both PDF and MS Word files on the CD-ROM, allowing you to re-write or individualise the text, dialogue and lyrics to suit your needs and to print as many scripts as you require from your PC (the CD-ROM pack also includes an audio CD of music as with the Book and CD version).
Approximate Duration: 60 minutes
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.

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!
