Thanks for your prompt help! The kids have done two of yours before –The Monster of the Maze” and “The Dream Catcher”, both of which they really enjoyed. The plays have been brilliant for our size of school – only 25 kids, and very varied age groups, from 4 to 12. Somehow they have all fitted in somewhere and love the songs.
