    'The New Adventures of Superstan' or anything by Craig Hawes. Brilliant! Aimed more at upper Primary but great fun!

    Grease is expensive & the differences between the film & the musical can make the musical,unpopular

    Just to say - 'School of Rock' has free rights at the end of the year, and you don't technically need any musicians - there is the option of stems if you have some/ all of the kids playing their own instruments, or full backing tracks if you choose to have no live music. The tracks and libretto are of excellent quality. I will say that you'll need a very strong student to play Dewey Finn - he'll have to carry the whole show, realistically, and is barely off stage for the two hours duration. Brilliant show though - we did at at the end of the summer term and it is my favourite teaching experience in my whole career so far!
