Based on the wondrous, classic tales of the 1001 Arabian Nights, this stunning and dramatic musical tells of Scheherazade and the stories she must tell the King to save her own life and the lives of many other women. 1001 stories were told, but this show concentrates on four of them in detail, offering a rich mix of songs, drama, dance, characters and costume.
This director’s score contains the full score with all the songs from the production arranged for Voice and Piano with chord symbols, as well as the entire script and stage directions.
This is a versatile and flexible production with several optional opportunities for dance, varying class sizes and different ability levels catered for. The two accompanying CDs provide full vocal demonstrations, instrumental backings and sound effects for each of the 14 wonderful and original, songs and dances facilitating easier teaching, learning and performance.
Easy to teach and uncomplicated to stage with the practical, Scheherazade is a joy to perform and full of fun and entertainment. Nick Perrin’s has crafted a fabulously entertaining musical with plenty of musical variations which compliment a clear storyline, full of intrigue and magic.
Not sure how I'm going to top this one! 120 children involved, they thoroughly enjoyed it, as did the parents. The songs are varied and all got the children swinging or bopping along and the harmony parts fitted together beautifully. Really don't know what to do this year!!! Anonymous
