‘SongStarz – The Musical’ is the first of the SongStarz musicals and follows the adventures of Lola, Issy and Cass as they enter the SongStarz competition where all is not as it seems.
It is adapted from the first two books in the forthcoming series from F.T.Gibbet, and developed following university research into adapting works to meet the needs of secondary schools in the 21st century.
We’re passionate about arts in schools here at SongStarz, so, as well as the FULL SongStarz – Musical for Schools (FREE! until 2020), we’ve also created…
SongStarz – The Live Show – a shorter version of the full musical for schools who are pushed for rehearsal time
SongStarz – Songwriters Showcase – which has more focus on singing than acting.
These will also be FREE! until end 2020.
For schools with a number of students who would be interested in writing and performing their own songs, as well as the digital backdrops, simple lead sheets and director’s notes and karaoke videos etc that come with each musical, we’re also making songwriting resources FREE! to schools for each musical till 2020 (ready September 2018), to help you help your students write their own songs – maybe even perform them in the musical!
So, whether you want to stage the FULL musical production that’s been created ESPECIALLY FOR SCHOOLS or you want to do stage something with high impact on a smaller scale, or you want your students writing and performing their own songs, we’ve got an option for you.
Oh, and before we forget, we’re proud to support Arts Award, so, if you want to support your students in doing Arts Award (www.artsaward.org), resources have been created by an Arts Award Advisor especially for SongStarz, to help you support your students through their Bronze and Silver Awards – you don’t have to be doing Arts Award to do the musical, but the resources are there if you want to make use of them and it’s a great way to help your students explore and develop involvement with the arts.
The musicals comes complete with – script, score, directors notes (including costumes, props, lighting and music), guide and backing tracks, chord sheets, lyric sheets, digital backdrops for each scene (some animated).
SongStarz has been piloted to great response, and a licence is available to schools FREE! until the end of 2020.
Karaoke videos will be provided for all the songs ready for summer 2018 so you can give students a chance to learn the songs ahead of rehearsal starts in September… here’s ‘Wouldn’t It Be Great!’
The website will be updated with more resources in time for a September 2018 rehearsal start, but if you’d like to register your interest and get a sneaky peak at the materials (or get your school started with Arts Award earlier), please register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, we’d love to hear from you.
Bye for now! (As Zeta Katara would say)
