Harvest 2021: The Little Black Cloud

‘The Little Black Cloud’ tells the story of a nice friendly cloud who just wants to share his lovely rain. To his surprise though, he finds that most people don’t seem to want it! He then meets a farmer whose crops are dying because of a drought. Can the Little Black Cloud save the harvest?

This simple performance is approximately 15-20 minutes in length and is very easy to learn and stage. It contains six short songs, three of which are repeated several times over through the performance. There is also an optional hymn to finish off, based on ‘The Canticle of The Sun’ by St. Francis Of Assisi. The songs, which are beautifully sung by a very young child, are linked together by one of two included scripts: a simple narrators’ only script, and a rhyming playscript. All the backing music is included so there’s no need for a pianist. This product also comes with PowerPoint scenery, PowerPoint songwords, sheet music, songsheet and more.


The download version has been updated in the following ways:

  • Re-mastered audio tracks.
  • New rhyming playscript.
  • Re-written narrators script.
  • Brand new artwork.
  • New PowerPoint scenery and PowerPoint songwords.
  • Re-formatted songsheets / sheet music.
  • New CD Cover.

Please note that the CD version has NOT been updated and still contains older content. This is because CD ROM versions of all our products are now being phased out, as we move towards launching our new streaming service. (Audio CDs will still be available as optional extras).


“Last year we did The Little Black Cloud with a cast of junior, infant and early years. On the day of the Harvest Festival an Ofsted inspector sat in and the assembly was graded as outstanding! It worked perfectly for the extremes of ages and the children had a lot of fun learning the songs. I am looking forward to doing something of yours that will be equally successful this year. Thank you.” (T. Allan – Teacher)
