"A HUGE HIT! 'I'll Dream Of Kosovo' is something that will remain very special to me as we all gained so much from it. I had parents who were dubious about the subject to start with in raptures. Even the men were mopping their eyes! The songs were so well sung - 64 children with harmonies - a very moving experience." S. Raven
DESCRIPTION: An emotional production (with a happy ending) which is partially based on a true story. Recommended for ages 9 -11 and over, this children's musical examines the effects of war on two young children who journey to the UK as refugees. Nine brilliant songs are simply connected with readings from the main characters diary, making this production very easy to stage. This musical which is suitable for any time of the year, was originally composed for and performed at the opening of the Imperial War Museum North. Script Sample Here
MUSICAL CONTAINS: This musical contains 9 songs altogether. Two songs contain optional 2 part harmonies and one song contains an optional 4 part harmony.

With added extras like PowerPoints, printable sheet music, songsheets and OHP masters, you have everything you need and more for a fantastic children's musical performance.
