‘The story is very appropriate for this age group, and the children really enjoyed the humour and the songs. Very good all round!’
- SG, Year 2 Teacher, East Sussex.
A Tale Of Two Birthdays is a show with lots of character (and plenty of characters!) that is very simple to produce. There are lots of opportunities for different children to shine and the songs are exceptionally easy to teach, with lively actions provided. There are even a couple of choreographed dances to try. Great fun!
Old King Casper is celebrating his birthday in fine style with his friends, King Melchior and King Balthazar. Their bossy wives admire an unusual star, sparkling like a diamond in the sky, and demand their husbands go and find it.
Trudging across the desert, the three kings resist temptations offered by Herod's unruly soldiers and encounter some sand dancers before reaching a starlit stable. Time to celebrate another birthday!
Contains eight main characters and numerous minor and non-speaking parts. Suitable for children aged 5-8 years.
The Director's Pack contains everything you need to stage a successful show including the Director's Book with director's overview, cast list, synopsis, notes, script, score, lyrics, helpful staging suggestions and performance licence application form. The accompanying CD contains full vocal demonstrations of the songs for the children to learn and separate instrumental backing tracks for performance use (no pianist required).
