School Musicals

Looking for an Original School Musical?

Finding a musical that is just right for your school can be a tough job, especially when you want lots of parts for several classes, great songs and a modern flavour.

The musicals I have written have the full cast in the body of the hall or theatre throughout the show, eliminating that awful problem of having to look after excited kids in the wings, or cue them from afar.

Please feel welcome to browse through the rest of these musicals. I would love to hear from you if you want more info or have any comments.
