Product Description

The aim of this "historical musical" is to provide a learning tool through which history is brought to life by music and drama.

The Tudor Rose is set out as a musical play in two acts. A Narrator links the events in between sections giving an historical backdrop to each scene in the lives of these two great Tudor monarchs.

Act 1 concerns the life and times of Henry VIII from his childhood until his death in 1547 and Act 2 portrays the events leading up to the invasion of the Spanish Armada in 1588.

Approximate Duration: 60 minutes
