‘I hope Dumble The Dinosaur will bring your pupils much fun. My own pupils, for whom the musical was written, enjoyed every moment - from the preparing of the songs and costumes to the performances for their families and friends. The fact that chocolate is an irresistible food to many people may have something to do with the musical's attraction - who knows?’
- SH, UK.
A light-hearted, short musical play with six songs involving mime, dance and percussion for children aged 4-8 years, set in a fantasy land of dinosaurs and ancient man.
The tale links educational information about dinosaurs and prehistoric man with the fun of chocolate!
The Teacher's Book includes production notes, songs and piano accompaniment with chord symbols and percussion. Suitable for performance all year round for Key Stage 1 and lower Key Stage 2.
As an alternative to using the cassette tape, professionally recorded demonstration and backing tracks are also available to purchase and download via this link here.
