What A Knight!

Pricing & Order Info.
"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!"

A hilarious musical adventure!
A castle full of colourful characters join in the fun, including precocious princesses, a talking dragon - and not forgetting Merlin and his magic mirror! When young squire Watt Cobblers is expelled from Knight School, he reluctantly becomes Merlin's new apprentice. But trouble is never far away, and soon Camelot Castle collapses into chaos. Merlin has lost Excalibur, King Arthur's daughters have been kidnapped and his brave knights have turned into chickens. Watt and his new found friends Dusty Dragon and wayward Princess Alice set off on the biggest quest of their lives. But can our unlikely heroes rescue the princesses, save Excalibur and defeat the evil Black Knight? The answers are found in this magical production, where everyone is guaranteed to sing a lot, dance a lot and laugh a lot... at Camelot!

With parts for between 26 and 60 children, plus unlimited chorus parts, this show will suit any size cast.
