‘My all time favourite of the Craig Hawes shows ... so far! Hilarious script and catchy songs make this an absolute hit with adults and children alike. Our children created memories to treasure after being part of such a brilliant show!’
- LC, Cuckney Primary School. Product Description
Craig Hawes launches his intergalactic musical comedy 'Star Warts - The Umpire Strikes Back' ... and it's out of this world! Suitable for Key Stage 2 (ages 7 to 11).
This is the Reduced Version ( 50 minutes duration) which is a cut down version of the original Full Version with some songs and scenes having been removed and other dialogue edited and condensed, resulting in a shorter production. Please click here for the Full Version (80 minutes duration). Star Warts boldly goes where no musical has gone before, so fasten your seatbelts, set phasers to fun and may the sauce be with you!
In a galaxy far, far away, Luke Warmwater and his aunt, Daft Ada, live a lonely life on their secluded space station, Junction 51. But when Princess Nebula's ship crash lands into Luke's bedroom, they soon learn of the evil Umpire and his dark desire to conquer the universe.
Along with Toby Wonky Nosebleed, Zak Solo and Nigel the Nookie, they follow Princess Nebula in her rebellion. Aboard the Millennium Penguin, they whizz warp-speed through the galaxy to the Umpire's High Tower on Planet Wimbledonia. But little do they know, the Umpire is about to strike back!
Join these galactic goofballs on their space adventure light-years from home as they have close encounters with dippy droids, mad martians, spaced-out Space Rangers and a ferocious pot-plant called Gordon. Can our crazy crew master the power of the sauce to save the galaxy or will it be game, set and match to the Umpire? Watch this space ...
With a cast of cooky characters, hilarious pun-packed script, and six spectacular songs as catchy as a severe case of Star Warts, this meteoric musical has universal appeal! Your cast of superstars will have a blast and your audience will be over the moon!
55 named characters with 50 speaking roles (can be easily reduced to 28 cast size or easily expanded for larger groups with additional characters and chorus to involve a whole year group, key stage or school, if neccessary). Extensive production notes, simple staging, fun to costume and printable props available (see "Free Resources" below). Separate CDs of vocal and backing tracks (with essential sound effects) and Full Performance and Easy Play piano scores also available.
A BRAND NEW product called
Sing it! is also available to accompany Star Warts. 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).
Another BRAND NEW product is the "Dance it!" Choreography DVD. Watch each song performed by a group of age-appropriate children in two different versions - a full speed 'Performance' version and a slowed down 'Step By Step' version with helpful narration to guide you through the dance. Introduced by Craig Hawes, the DVD is also packed with lots of handy hints for teaching dances. Absolutely no previous experience or expertise is needed.
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.
