Watch This Space - A Musical Play


Graham Ferguson & David Harding

Published by SchoolPlay Productions

Large Mixed Cast
The children are preparing a float for Birchdale Village Carnival - it's to be a space ship with them dressed as Space Invaders

In the same barn Professor Stroganoff is busy constructing what he fervently hopes will be a Time Machine

The children decide to hoax him into thinking that it works and that he has landed on another planet

He is almost taken in - but the practical joke is interrupted by the bombastic entrance of the Mayoress, a bossy dragon with her comic husband Hercules, a henpecked mouse

She threatens to drop the children from the Carnival parade, bullies her husband and insults the Professor and his invention. In return, he persuades her inside the Time Machine, which succeeds in transporting both of them, not to another century but into the village duck pond. Lessons are learnt and all ends well!

Cast : 12 speaking parts (7 m, 5 f, or 11 m, 1 f) + chorus. Suggested Age Range : 8 - 13. Running Time : 75 minutes Music : Nine songs (including three reprises); piano accompaniment. Set : An old barn
