All musicals are a low resource intensive way for schools to put on a fantastic musical and give students a great experience.
Learn how you can get your school 'SongStarz'd' up and gain access to all the great support materials including Arts Award mapped resources.
SongStarz musicals are based on the series of 15 books, multiple companion books, songs, music and related media centering around a television competition of the same name. SongStarz - The Musical was adapted for a musical for schools in 2016 following academic research in how best to adapt books into musicals to meet needs of modern shools.
Take a sneaky peek below and keep on scrolling to get an idea of the resources available to your school.
Specifically Adapted for Schools
Launched in 2016 following academic research at Loughborough University into what secondary schools need to make their musical a successful experience for all involved.
In the 'SongStarz - Audition Show' schools are provided with backing tracks and songwriting hints and tips for students to write and perform their own songs within the SongStarz story.
SongStarz Beginnings - The Musical is a fully scripted 1 act 'short' musical, adapted from the book by the same name, the first in the SongStarz series Beginnings. Fans of Miss Bruce and The Professor will be pleased to see them make an appearance.

All musicals are adaptable to suit cast or resources.
