Camel's Arms, The - By Dave Corbett
Featuring the family who run 'The Camel's Arms' Inn in Bethlehem, this musical has seven fantastic easy-to-learn songs and all the elements of a traditional nativity, along with a generous helping of humour throughout - and a starring role for the non-speaking sheep! Maaaiirvelous!
Perfect for children aged 5 to 9. Although this show is very adaptable and will suit mixed infant/junior groups, we do recommend that the main characters are played by older children.
Very easy to stage and teach with 19 speaking roles and a flexible cast size to suit your group numbers, from 19 actors upwards, with any number of chorus parts. Separate CDs of vocal and backing tracks and Easy Play Piano Score also available. Suitable for key stages 1 and 2 (ages 5-9 years).
A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is also availables. 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.

Also 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.
Another new product is AudioScript, an "Audio Book" style read-through of the entire show performed by professional voice actors. The AudioScript is supplied on a CD and teaches each child their lines, when to perform them and most importantly, HOW to perform them. The copy and repeat method is simply the best and quickest way to learn. You can listen to a sample of the AudioScript product in the "Contents/Songlist" section below.
