Waltz Dream, A Drama; Romance View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Oscar Straus’ first attempt at a Viennese operetta, after several operas and burlesques, brought him international renown. The sentimental story, full of nostalgia for old Vienna, appealed greatly to German and Austro-Hungarian audiences and the original Viennese production at the Carltheater in 1907 enjoyed a longer run than even "The Merry Widow". In the imaginary state of Rurislavenstein the heiress to the throne has disrupted court life by marrying a common Austrian guardsman, Niki. After much heart-searching and a near disaster, when she mistakes Niki’s harmless meeting with Franzi (the leader of an Austrian girls’ orchestra) for infidelity, the Princess learns to love her hastily-chosen husband and the inevitable happy ending ensues.

Waltzes From Vienna Drama; Romance View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

This story of the tension between Strauss the elder and Strauss the younger, engendered by the son’s ambitions to succeed his father as the Waltz King of Vienna, is delightfully woven around a score which is a collection of some of the greatest light music ever composed. It tells of the star-crossed romance between young Johann and the attractive daughter of an engagingly-eccentric pastry-cook, and involves a helpfully-intriguing Countess and other endearing characters. Climaxed of course by the immortal Blue Danube, this is a feast of the music that set the whole world dancing.

Winter's Tale, A Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

A WINTER’S TALE is Goodall’s musical take on the play by William Shakespeare.  The 2012 production at the Landor Theatre won the Off West End Theatre Award for Best New Musical.

‘Like The Dreaming the show was written specifically for young people to perform, but stands up beautifully now for a more experienced cast, too, and yields darker, richer musical and dramatic colours in the process. It’s very typical of the composer - to my mind (and ears) the best contemporary British composer of musicals we have - to take a problem play and turn it into a glorious opportunity.’ The Stage (Mark Shenton), 13 November 2012

Witchwood Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

WITCHWOOD is set in a wood (Witchwood) threatened with destruction by proposals for a major road development. The central group is the family whose home and livelihood are most at risk, and the main image is the Great Oak of Witchwood, which will have to be felled to make way for the road. The action moves through the four seasons- a complete annual cycle of the Wood - from Summer, when the plans are first announced, to the following Spring, when the Wood is cut down. WITCHWOOD tells the story of the growing resistance to the plans and of the resultant clashes between (and within) the family, protestors, politicians and developers. It is packed with humour as well as action and, though ‘issue based’, is primarily designed to entertain and to provide strong acting and musical opportunities for individuals and groups.

WITCHWOOD is suitable for mixed or single sex casts, ranging in number from 50 to 300.

Yanomamo Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

YANOMAMO vividly tells of the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest and its effect on the Yanomamo, the oldest Indian tribe living there. They lead a way of life in harmony with nature, which, undisturbed, would survive with the forest indefinitely. However, their existence, and that of millions of animals and plant species, is threatened by the arrival of outsiders who assume that the forest soil is permanently rich and that once the trees are cleared, the land will be very productive. But after two years, no crops will grow because the richness of the jungle is in the trees, not in the soil. Thus the delicate balance of nature is being systematically removed and soon the rainforests, which are crucial to the world’s eco-system, will disappear together with the Indians and the wildlife. Is there the time or the will to save them?

YANOMAMO was filmed as Song of the Forest and shown in Channel 4’s Fragile Earth series, narrated by Sting. Published in association with the World Wide Fund for Nature.
