The Donkey’s Tale contains 6 catchy songs, along with all the backing music tracks so there’s no need for a pianist.

Both scripts have been re-written and re-formatted with additional / enhanced parts. For example, there is now one extra line for each of the disciples. The ‘Production Notes’ document has also been edited with new additional staging ideas and suggestions. PowerPoints, Sheet Music and Songsheet have all been reformatted.

“Another class in my school had previously used some of your excellent Christmas musicals. All the staff were talking about how amazing they had been with some stating that they were some of the very best Christmas productions they’d ever seen. So, when I was told to produce a play for Easter, I knew exactly where to look. The Donkey’s Tale appealed to me straight away as I have links with a local donkey sanctuary. I was incredibly impressed. The songs, the backing music, the script, the masks, the sheet music and more were all absolutely excellent. I also loved the fact that it came with an editable script as I could easily add some extra lines to the script with minimum effort. The Easter performance went really well and the feedback from parents and staff was exceptional. Well done.”
