Suitable for 10 years and over. Duration 100 mins. Approx. HIRE ONLY




THE CATS OF PONSONBY: Co-writer Rae Prowse

This popular musical takes place in the courtyard at the back entrance to a restaurant. A gang of hungry Alley Cats waits outside the back door hoping form some scraps of food. Frustrated that the three Burmese House cats are pampered, Kitten is kidnapped for a ransom of food. This sets off a chain of events that involves the rival cat gangs of Big Tom’s Thugs and the Media Mob. Complications, skirmishes and a romance arise. All’s well that ends well.

Fifteen songs with optional solos, suitable for large or small cast.

Arranged for piano accompaniment only, or with guitar, 4 tuned and untuned percussion, two flutes, bass and drums.

Suitable for 8-12 year olds. Duration 60 mins. Approx. HIRE ONLY




DIDDIKAI (Gypsy Girl): Co-writer Ruth Hamilton

Richi is a ‘half-gypsy’ orphan girl. When her Aunt dies, she is left destitute. At school the children dislike her. She is too different from them. Their dislike leads to hatred and violence. The children mob Richi and think that they have killed her. Later full of remorse they try to make amends only to find Richi too stubborn, too proud, perhaps too deeply hurt.

Diddikai can be presented entirely as a choral work with a narrator or alternatively may be staged as a full production with either small or large groups.

The story is narrated with ample opportunity for extensive dancing and acting.

Nine songs with optional solos, arranged for piano accompaniment only, or with guitar, tuned and untuned percussion, two flutes, bass and drums.

Suitable for 8-12 year olds. Duration 35 mins. Approx. HIRE ONLY>

Recorded on CD with Billy T. James as the narrator
