Bertie's Genius - A Family Musical


Mary Honor

Published by SchoolPlay Productions

2 Female

Back to the 1920s for a tale of intrigue, a little magic and good clean fun, helped along by lively music and dance

An adventurous young hero, the irrepressible Egbert Worthy, with liberal helpings of cheek and ingenuity, defies authority, reunites the twin Genies and saves the Padisah of Zevkli from a nasty coup

Suggested Age Range : 8 to 13 but could extend upwards. Running Time : 80 minutes + intervals

Music: Several up-tempo tunes, mostly in 1920s styles, some set for choreography. Accompaniment should be small band (piano, guitar, 2 clarinets, trombone, cello or bass and percussion) but could be piano and drums. Ideally a small string group also on stage.

Set: From auction room, through antique shop, quayside and ship's deck, to middle-eastern road and finally palace; can mostly be very simple effects.
