Review by A.T. - Cast Member.
My daughter appeared in What a Knight in her Year 6 play this week and it was fantastic. Great story, great jokes and even better catchy songs. So catchy in fact, we can't stop singing them.
Review by Clare
A fantastic choice for a Year 6 cast.
We have performed this as our End of Year Key Stage 2 production.
The Year 6 absolutely loved the script from the moment they first read through it and were very excited! The choir also enjoyed singing the songs. Last night was our first performance and the parents thought it was great and laughed at the jokes!
A great script and catchy songs makes this a fantastic choice for a Year 6 cast.

Review by Olivia
Great show for emerging artists!
This is the second summer we have used a Hawes script for our two-week musical theater camp. Last summer we did Ye Ha!
What is really great about these scripts is that each role has lines and a defined character. It allows us the opportunity to work with every child on character development. While Ye Ha allowed us to use our American accents (we even have the cowboy part down really well out here), we used What a Knight to also provide the students some accent work.
The scripts easily accommodate the 40 or so students we have in our camp each year and the entire artistic and production team has a great time working on the show.
The music is fun and simple enough to learn quickly, the length of the show perfect and the jokes are very funny as well. With all those elements we were able to pull off great productions in just 7 days of rehearsal at the camp.
We can't wait to find another Hawes script for our 2011 summer camp.

A Knight to Remember
Our Year 6 children have had us in hysterics today performing this to the rest of the school. Other teachers said it was the best play they've seen performed at the school for a long while. What can I say? Excellent script and music makes it really easy to stage and the kids just love performing it. Thanks to the composer!

Review by Hisham Merlin sherborne school qatar
We did this for our end of year play and we had so much fun. The songs are really good and we were able to add some witty moves to go with the words. We had the audience in fits and I LOVED How To Be Me - best song! Even if it is because it was my solo but everyone said that was their favourite so I was like yay!
Review by Princess Alice
I cant wait! im singing on my own! this prouduction is going to be the best!

Review by Ben, Sefton Park, Bristol
Best Play Ever!
All my class have really emjoyed performing this show and getting into crazy costumes. We have got into playing the roles and pretend to be our characters when we eat lunch! The show is going to be amazing on the night of the performance and I don't think ANYONE can wait!
We have a great Watt and Kitty (the banter between those two is great) and a amazing Alice, Merlin and Dusty! Everyone suits their characters and can perform their parts well.
I suggest to anyone wanting to perform this play to do so, you will be laughing from start to finish and singing ALL the catchy songs on the way home.
Review by Charlotte, St.Catherines School, Horwich
I was Watt Cobblers and it was my Yr 6 leavers production. It was the best one i ever did!!!!!!! Loads of laughs!!!! OHHHH WHAT A KNIGHT!
Review by Lewis Pickles - Fryern Junior School, Chandlers Ford
What a Knight! What a Summer Camp!
A really great show which transports children and parents back in to the dark ages with consummate ease! The songs are catchy, but not too ambitious for a week's holiday workshop, but children learned the lines quickly and relished producing a fabulous performance with our team of directors. At Stagecoach Galway, we love working with Musicline because they keep delivering measurable results and What a Knight! will not let you down. A big hit and highly recommended.
Review by John Lucey Stagecoach Galway
Fun for all
Fun producing it, being 11 years old and a pupil acting King Arthur, everyone enjoyed it. The audience loved it too. A great production.
Review by Jacob Leman, Butlers Court School, Beaconsfield
I'm doing it for my year 6 play and it's incredible! Because there were a lot of people who wanted big parts, my school added more characters, and I'm one of them. I play Princess Aldena so now there are five princesses!!!!
Everybody suits their characters and Watt and Alice did a great job learning their lines! I can't wait for the three main performances. My school has added a choir, and loads of dances including the guards dance, the chess dance and the bakers dance. Ernie and Bernie are soooooo funny! This play is amazing and is a great comedy! I reccommend it.
Review by Sophie, Knaphill School, Woking
Witty and Entertaining
Our entire school (K-8) performed this musical last spring for an end of the year performance. It was a hit! We are a small school of 60, so everyone had a part and was involved. K-2 students were utilized as "chorus" while members of every other grade had at least one group speaking parts.
Songs were catchy and easy to learn.
We loved it!
Review by Immanuel, Salem OR
I play Watt Cobblers in my end of year production: 'What A Knight!' And my class absolutely LOVES it!

Overall all I can say is..... WOW!!!

Review by St Bartholomew s C.E Primary school Great Harwood
What a Knight!
Just finished our run of the show. The children loved it, the staff loved it and so did our packed audiences. The play was straightforward to produce - lots of laughs throughout and plenty of opportunities for the children to show off their talents.
A very well scripted show with lots of really good lines.
Roll on next year and another Musicline production.
Review by Mrs Atkins Pewithall Primary School
What a Knight... indeed!!!!
This was the first Craig Hawes musical we had ever performed and my students were hooked on Craig Hawes!! They loved putting on their best british accents for their performance!! The comedic lines throughout the musical were hilarious. I still laugh thinking about the Ernie and Bernie Black Head characters!! I highly recommend this musical.
