A refreshing Easter musical with terrific, catchy songs - Spring has sprung. Hedgehogs wake, flowers grow, baby chicks, kittens and lambs bounce around, and there's an Easter card for Grandma.

This play offers a sweet and succinct introduction to Easter and the nature behind it. 'Springtime' opens the production and the narrators introduce the first family of animals; the hedgehogs. Not only does this provide a charming interaction between the hedgehog family, but the children performing and watching also learn about hibernation. 'Rise and Shine' follows.

The flowers then have the opportunity to rise and shine, and as they uncurl themselves, Joe enters with a watering can and the importance of sunshine and water is highlighted in this short but appealing section. 'Lots of Lovely Water' is sung and raindrops circle the flowers throughout.

Farmer Frank, Joe, Jess and Jenny enter, explaining the jobs they have to do, which emphasises how busy Easter time is. After feeding the hens while the 'Easter Chicks' song is sung, the lambs are next in line to be seen to. After an energetic scene with the lambs, the children feed them with milk in order that they grow 'big and strong,' and the song 'A Special Treat' is sung, which considers the different foods animals eat. The horses and ducks enter followed by the cat and her kittens, the rabbits and baby rabbits; soon the stage begins to represent your local farmyard! Once Caroline the Cow and her calves make their way onto the stage, 'Tired Little Animals' is sung and one by one, the animals all fall fast asleep...

Back at the farmyard house, Jenny, Joe, Jess and Farmer Frank are joined by Granny and Gramps who are presented with their Easter cards from their grandchildren and the children are given something more familiar to everyone at Easter... Easter eggs! 'A Beautiful World' ends the show. A charming, informative production that is perfect for Key Stage 1 in the spring term.

N.B. Two more Sunbeams will also be required. All the other non-speaking parts have been covered in this reduced cast suggestion. It is intended that costumes are kept simple to allow for those playing two characters to make quick changes. All actors should sit close to the stage and sing as the Chorus whenever possible.
