Wall Street Bash

A Wall St Bash is set in the early 1930’s in a US city that could be New York or Chicago.

It includes a cast of Vaudeville Dancers, down at heel Businessmen, Suspected Orphans and Jailbirds. As the story unfolds it becomes clear that all of the characters lives are intertwined and depend on each other to succeed. As in most good stories they all manage to triumph in the end.

A Waste Of Space

Synopsis

Set on Mars 10 years into the future, A Waste of Space is a combination of allegory, comedy and love story.

After catastrophe on Earth, surviving humans were compelled to find a new home on Mars. The story explores the differences and similarities between earthlings and humans.

With hippies, punks, martian environmentalists and Stage 1 Robots, everyone is guaranteed a moment to shine with an incompetent Prime Minister thrown in to boot. The heartstrings are tugged too when the oldies miss home and Pimalia (a Martian) falls in love with Ned (an earthling).

The story also explores the differences between everybody in a light-hearted way but how easy certain mistrust could lead to conflict.

There are 60 parts, 20 for each stage but these can easily be condensed to less parts as required, and with song choices allowing a show running time of 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Cast list and breakdown of each stage provided along with possible song / dance choices.

As a guideline it works well as Stage 1 for 6 – 9 year olds, Stage 2 for 9 – 12 year olds and Stage 3 for 13 – 18 year olds. This can be tweaked to suit individual production needs.

Westward Woe

A comic tale of Pirates, captured sailors and soon to be unemployed Santa’s Elves makes for a colourfully costumed show with a suitable challenge fo students from 6 – 18 years old.

In replicating more contemporary themes, the pirates enter into a coalition, the sailors complain about their pay and conditions and Santa’s Elves must travel to Iceland to clean up the Volcanic Ash.

The show, gives each stage’s students a significant speaking part with funny one-liners but a sting in the tale (so to speak).

Eventually the pirates coalition flounders leaving the ordinary sailor’s and magical Elves to pick up the pieces. A second to none feel-good factor to the piece yet offering a challenge to all stages. And even The Worzels make an appearance.

Detailed Stage Directions have been provided to aid with staging along with tried and tested Song and Dance choices.

There are 17 parts for the Stage 1 Elves, 23 parts for the Stage 2 Sailors and 20 parts for the Stage 3 Pirates.

Right Royal Rumpus

Right Royal Rumpus Synopsis / Cast List

A Right Royal Rumpus has a pantomime feel with a light moral tale included – best described as Panto meets XBox 360 Live (or How To Turn Spoilt Princesses Into Much Kinder People!)

There are seventeen parts written for each stage with varying degrees of challenge as you rise through the stages. Many characters have more than one line and therefore could be shared out should there be more than seventeen students in any one stage.

The script is slick and fast-paced and a tight show with a running time of approximately 65 minutes (dependent on the musical choices). More music could be added if deemed necessary.

It has also been blocked so that it is clear to the teachers where the best entrances and exits work. It also works with a very simple set of three spaced out rostra upstage (very useful for the later ensemble numbers). All other furniture required is one light, wide table and can be brought on and removed by the students, no adults need appear at any stage during the show!

Stage 1s are Chocolate Mice and Bumble bees, Stage 2s play Cats and Androids, Stage 3s Princesses, Sidekicks, Wicked Witch and and two comic Cooks.

Throughout the piece there are suggested music choices for both singing and dance.

The Pied Piper Of Hamelin

A slightly different take on a long standing and much loved story of The Pied Piper Of Hamelin.

With Bruce Forsyth as the Town Crier and greedy politicians refusing to pay the Piper - chaos ensues. Other fairytales and well loved stories are called upon too with Hansel & Gretel, a toy-maker and a few town gossips to boot.

Stage 1 have 23 parts & play the rats divided into four groups – Posh Rats, Hungry Rats, Smelly Rats & Military Rats all vying for the best food on offer.

Stage 2 have 22 parts and are the local children who have the feel of the kids from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – hungry and afraid but ultimately triumph.

Stage 3 have 20 parts and play mainly the adults of the village and suurounds.

Some students could double up on parts if too many to go around.

There are lots of comic, contemporary references but with the feel of a medieval romp.

Suitable material for 6 – 18 year olds, the show, gives each stage’s students a significant speaking part with funny one-liners and lots of on stage time.

Detailed Stage Directions have been provided to aid with staging, along with tried and tested Song and Dance choices. The show runs for approximately 75 minutes.
