Children can use it at school or at home - think of the time it will save you! Most schools use it in class on an interactive white board or in the school hall on the overhead projector to allow full cast practice. Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof.

St Dithers School is in trouble! Following an extremely poor OFSET inspection the school has been labelled 'Average' and is in grave danger of being closed down.
The governors, worried about the fate of their school and with only 6 weeks to turn things around, decide to take drastic action. They realise that improving the school in that length of time would be impossible and that it would be easier to replace the head, and most of the pupils, with 'super-talented' ones. They also decide to bring in entirely new staff made up of celebrities from the world of entertainment!
A new head teacher, Simon Trowel, is appointed with the intention of making the school into a breeding ground for young super stars who will one day be on TV reality shows and dominate show business forever! New 'super-teachers' are brought in from the world of 'show biz reality TV shows' and include: Will.I.Was, Cherri Cola, Dusty Barrel, Bruno Macaroni and Craig Rebel-Cardboard. Bant and Beck, the northern comic duo, are also appointed as the 'Superstar Announcers'.
When the staff and pupils decide to fight back, fun and frolics ensue making this an extremely entertaining show for children to perform.
