        Very good musical especially for kids. But it stops absolutely there. Cassette is awful.
        It's a shame that such good musical is only available in audio cassette! In this day and age nobody uses audio cassettes and of course the quality is absolutely rubbish and some parts of the tape is damaged with the consequence that the music hiccups at these points. Boo hiss!!!

        At least the children can hear what the music should be like. It is an excellent show with witty numbers and an accessible way of introducing younger children to this classic poem.
        Very fast tempo for rehearsal purposes. Therefore instrumental only numbers need to be slowed down. This musical needs to be produced on CD as few schools have the facility to play cassettes these days.

        The cassette arrived in perfect condition and played with no problems. But who uses cassette nowadays? I was very surprised to find there was no CD version of this great musical! I was hoping to use the recording as a backing track at school but it is far too fast for the children to sing along to, which is a shame. So, did I get what I ordered? Yes, and 5 stars for efficiency. Does it do what I wanted it to do? Sorry, no not really.
