The songs in this collection are ideal for classroom singing, and the interlinking dialogue tells a fascinating story of family history and travels around the world. You will find songs from all menner of cultures including Aborigine, Chinese, Jamaican, African, Indian and Irish, as well as Music Hall, pop and even a sea shanty!

Love everything about it. My son enjoys the music, as do I. There are multiple scripts (tear out), the musical score, the two versions of the musical CDs (backing tracks and production tracks). Excellent kit for fun or to produce the performance yourself.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating I bought this show for my school last year. I had seen it at another school. It was easy to do, the children loved the story and the songs (one or two I would perhaps change)and many positive comments from the parents. The scenery was minimal and costumes easy to organise. The whole school was involved. I would definately reccomend it..

Customer Rating A really good musical, taking children through different cultures. They love singing it!
