Jane Blonde, double 'O' PS (OOPS!), licensed to do whatever, goes to rescue Father Christmas from the clutches of the evil Scarymonger.
His cunning plan is to flood the Christmas scene with counterfeit Santas who are SO nasty that nobody will ever want Christmas again. All this because Scarymonger did not get presents when he was a little boy... but then he was a very naughty little boy!
Christmas Is Forever is an exciting production with a James Bond connection - expect all your old favourite 007 type characters!
The story line combined with some truly inspirational songs with touches of Madness and the Bee Gees, makes it incredibly appealing to pupils... especially the boys

Willy Russell's Blood Brothers, the play version, which tells the story of
fraternal twins who are separated at birth.
Deserted by her husband, Mrs Johnston already has five children and is expecting twins. She cleans house for childless Mrs Lyons who offers unofficially to adopt
one of the babies. Mrs Johnston reluctantly agrees; she knows that the child will be well brought up in a prosperous household. But, there is a prophesy that twins parted at birth will die when they discover the
truth, and both mothers do their best to keep the twins, Mickey Johnston and Edward Lyons, well separated. The two boys grow up in two very different
environments, one in poverty and one of great privilege and both unaware that they are twins. They meet and become best friends- until a misunderstanding leads to a tragic end.
With the same dynamic impact and magical quality as the Senior version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", it has been carefully reworked, simplified and shortened so that Junior actors will not in the least be overstretched, but will enjoy the experience as much as feedback tells us that Middle & Senior schools and their audiences do.
Just as in the Senior show, the fear is taken out of Shakespeare. All his characters come vividly to life, comedy abounds and the musical score is outstanding.

A wonderful family pantomime full of innuendos, comical moments and panto slap stick. from the team who brought you the very popular play "Blood Brothers"
This is a tale of love and dwarves, can love and beauty conquer the evil queen?
The show is an adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's delightful tale of Rat, Mole, Badger and Toad.
As time moves swiftly on, Mole becomes even more intrigued about this new world and Toad is distracted by his new moter car and any vehichle for that matter.
A fun musical with two casts of children, we have really enjoyed creating this magical production.
