The Musicals

These musicals are written to be relevant and fun from a child’s point of view. The Ice Demon includes 7 modern and captivating songs, which are built on strong melodies, interesting structures and clever rhymes while offering the children a chance to enjoy singing a range of musical styles from blues to calypso. It also combines music, dance and drama to appeal to the different talents of the children.

Our musicals are a wonderful way to inspire children, enable them to grow and learn about themselves and build confidence in their unique and varied skills. Our musicals encourage a child’s involvement in the school and the community and instil a sense of personal responsibility and the value of teamwork. They will help foster a life long interest in learning and the arts.
