Gladis Baker, Gladiator - By Mike Horth and Jan Porter
Welcome to the Colosseum of Ancient Rome where the stage is set for the first Great Roman Bake off! There are no gladiator fights but you will be whisked into a frenzy, beaten to a foam and knocked back in a competition where Flour is Power!
Can orphan Gladis escape the clutches of her miserable aunt and uncle by winning the Great Roman Bake Off and becoming the Gladisbaker?
31 speaking roles with an ideal cast size of 39 (or minimum cast size 30) with any number of chorus parts. Easy to stage with no problem props (see PDF "Production Notes" in Samples section below for more details).
Separate CDs of vocal and backing tracks (with essential sound effects) and Full Performance piano score also available. Suitable for Key Stage 2, ages 7 to 11.
A BRAND NEW product called
Sing it! is now also available to accompany Gladis Baker, Gladiator. This CD-ROM teaches the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Most schools use it in class on an interactive white board or in the school hall on the overhead projector to allow full cast practice. Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof. Just give it to the children and they’ll do the rest. Click here for more details about the new Sing it! CD-ROM (well worth watching).
Also now available is a
CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual 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. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.
