Children's Theatre Musicals
Thinking about ordering a school musical? Directors, look no further! These musicals are perfect for middle and elementary school theatre departments. Specifically written with young performers in mind. These musicals have appropriate content, great music, and large flexible casting requirements.
Many of our children's theatre musicals have fully orchestrated rehearsal and performance CDs. This means the first half of the CD has vocals so youth actors can learn the music and the second half of the CD has just musical performance tracks which you can play during your production.
Trial of the Wicked Witch: The Musical
Script by Craig Sodaro. Music and Lyrics by Stephen Murray.
Cast: 8 m, 12 w, 1 flexible
The Wicked Witch is on trial for her crimes in the land of Once Upon a Time in this madcap musical featuring several favorite characters from many fairy tales. The cast includes the Fairy Godmother as the judge, the Three Little Pigs as bailiffs, and Jack the Giant Killer as the guard. Witnesses for the prosecution and defense provide a variety of toe-tapping tunes such as a swinging Big Bad Wolf in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” an operatic Rapunzel in “I Love to Sing,” and a rocking Gingerbread Man in “Go, Gingie, Go!” The Wicked Witch herself casts a musical spell with “Escape Velocity.” The audience acts as jury in this trial and gets to determine the fate of the Wicked Witch. Guilty or innocent, you can be assured that this show is “Wicked Awesome.”
A Meteor, Right?
By Steve Flowers.
Cast: 5 m, 19 w, 2-8 flexible, extras
The townspeople of Flemmington get rocked back on their heels when meteors come crashing down from space. Amidst all of the excitement and chaos, three teenage girls find the meteorites and discover the special powers that come along with them. The girls use these space rocks to their advantage to control the townspeople, including the Gaggle of Geeks, the phone-obsessed tweens, and the old lady who thinks everything is evil. The story culminates with the meteorites being used against each other during an epic battle to determine which one is the most powerful. There are 10 original songs, including large group numbers like "Welcome to Flemmington," "A Meteor, Right?" and "Puppet Master" as well as solo and small group songs such as "I Love My Phone," "Destiny" and "The Game of Love." The running time is one hour.
Story and lyrics by Jeff Bengford. Music by Dianne Saichek.

Here is a musical adventure through cyberspace, a song-filled battle between technology and imagination. The story begins simply in the home of a couple of ordinary kids, but when their babysitters are sucked into a video game, the adventure begins! To rescue their babysitters, the kids must figure out how to get "into the game." Once inside, the kids discover that their babysitters are not the only ones in trouble! An evil sorceress called Chasm is draining all the imagination and color out of cyberspace and soon there will be nothing left! The kids enlist the aid of the rebellious Space Pirates to stop Chasm, rescue their babysitters, and restore peace and harmony to the universe. In the end, the kids use their imaginations as a weapon to defeat Chasm and finally get themselves back home. Energy-packed songs include "Video Mania," "We're the Pixels," "Borks on Parade," and many others. (A non-musical version of this play is available. See "Video Mania!") Performance time about 90 minutes.
