Squadron' is a very modern Nativity and tells the Christmas
story from the point of view of the angels, who feature prominently
throughout the story.
The author wanted to produce something that boys in particular
could enjoy, and the style is something of a homage to the
'Battle of Britain' type films prevalent in the 1960s. It's
a lot of fun but also very thought-provoking, covering as
it does parts of the Christmas story that are often neglected
in traditional ‘tea-towel’ Nativity plays.

and educate your students and parents. A modern re-working

And All That!
is a new two act satirical musical
telling the story of the Gunpowder
as a black comedy (and almost a black pantomime
in parts). The large cast is ideal
for boys schools.
The legend of Dick Whittington, his
cat and Bow Bells, has grown over the years, and as
it makes such a lovely story, some of it is included
in our "true story". Although not a pantomime,
does include elements of the panto story. It was
written as a result of a request for a one-act musical
suitable for a largish junior school where all ages
could take part and where rehearsal and preparation
would not be too demanding.
