"The children LOVED it! The parents commented on how well they sang, and the fact that they jiggled and danced as they performed showed just how much they ENJOYED themselves. THANK YOU!" G. Young - Teacher

EASTER Spells Easter For JUNIORS - SCRIPT SAMPLE.pdfSample PDF

CAST SIZE: Very flexible! Perform with any number of children from 1 to 100+. Please be aware that the included script is a ‘Narrators Only’ script, meaning that the entire story is told through narrators with no lines for any actors.  However, you can still use actors to dramatize the script, if so desired. The cast list and staging advice (included in your purchase) gives detailed guidance for how this could work. Please see the above sample document for cast list and further information.

RUNNING TIME: If you stick exactly to the script then this musical is roughly 20-30 minutes long. However, this running time can easily be shortened or lengthened by up to 15-20 minutes either way. Suggestions for ways to achieve this are included in the detailed 'Production Notes' document which is included in your purchase.

REHEARSE IN A FEW DAYS: Short on rehearsal time? No problem, we know from experience that it's possible to rehearse a simple version of this play in a few days. What's the secret? During the show, read from the script, without anyone having to 'learn' any lines, and without any actors. As for the songs, simply divide them up! Don't get ALL the children to learn ALL the songs, instead share them between children, classes or year groups, so that no one has more than 1 or 2 songs to remember. If you follow this advice carefully then you may even be able to rehearse the whole show in a single day.

There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency.

UK DELIVERY

UK STANDARD DELIVERY (£1.99): All physical CD orders are usually dispatched via standard first class royal mail within 24 hours of the order being received. Therefore under normal circumstances most customers receive their orders within 1-3 working days. However at peak times of the year (October to December) please allow a little longer for your order to arrive.

UK NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY (£7.50): The option for UK customers to have their order delivered via 'guaranteed next day delivery' is available for phone orders only on 0844 357 8473. However during times of heavy demand we reserve the right to withdraw this service without notice. Orders via 'guaranteed next day delivery' must be placed before 2PM.


OVERSEAS (Non-UK) DELIVERY

OVERSEAS [NON-UK] DELIVERY (£8.99) : NON-UK CUSTOMERS ARE ADVISED TO READ ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE BUYING FROM US:

1) OVERSEAS PAYMENT OPTIONS: Please see the adjoining 'How To Buy' tab for various payment options.

2) CUSTOMS DUTY CHARGES: We are currently not aware of any country in the world, which will charge you an additional customs charge or import charge, for you to receive delivery of any of our goods. However, this is not a guarantee. Please check your local laws and customs regulations for clarification. In the unlikely event that you do incur a customs / import charge, Learn2soar Music will not be held accountable in any way, and the entire cost of the customs / import charge will be the responsibility of you, the customer.

3) DELIVERY CHARGES & TIMESCALE: If you have ordered physical goods for delivery, £8.99 will be added to your order for delivery costs. (Downloadable products / licences have no delivery charge.) This £8.99 price is for the 'Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed Service'. Your order will normally be dispatched by us within 24 hours of the order being made, (except at weekends / public holidays).

Deliveries will usually take 5-12  days to reach you depending on your location. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. Please note that at peak times of the year (November / December), or if you have ordered from a remote part of the world, then your order may take 2 to 4 weeks to reach you. For this reason we highly recommend that overseas customers consider buying downloadable products rather than physical products, which is always an instant way of receiving your purchase.

EXPRESS OVERSEAS DELIVERY: Alternatively, if you require your physical goods as urgently as possible, then we do have an express overseas delivery option available, which can get the goods to you in approximately 2-7 days (depending on your location). To purchase this express service, please visit the following page to add the £15.00 expedited delivery option, which is in addition to the standard £8.99 overseas delivery costs (Total express overseas delivery costs therefore become £15.00 + £8.99 = £23.99)

Hooked from the first song
"This CD had me hooked from the first song. A very well constructed musical performance for children which delivers the Easter Story with charm and compassion."
by J Mayo

Best I've used
"Over the last 25 years I've used around half a dozen different Easter story musicals from a variety of sources, but E-A-S-T-E-R Spells Easter is the best I've used for three reasons. Firstly it deals with the actual crucifixion in a very clever and sensitive way - Even though some of the children who have performed this musical with me were as young as 5, everyone understood and appreciated the part of the script which dealt with Jesus' death and loved singing the 'Trials & Tribulations' song that went with it. It was moving, but not upsetting, and told just enough of the bible story to make sense, without going into any details which could possibly cause upset or offence. Very impressive. Second the whole musical covers everything from Palm Sunday to the Resurrection, but doesn't drag on and on, like some others I've used over the years - 7 easy songs with a very simple script and it's all over within 20-30 minutes. It was perfect for our needs and I'm sure that's the same for most schools who have busy curriculums and schedules. And third, it’s acrostic - So blindingly simple, but again it makes it so much more accessible for the children and the audience. In summary this is a very smartly written, short Easter musical, which genuinely is entirely appropriate for the specified age-range. Superb."
by Mrs Peters, Music Specialist

Fantastic
"Some of our junior children performed 'E-A-S-T-E-R Spells Easter' last year. It was really fantastic! It was straightforward to use, with a delightfully simple script and easy-to-learn songs. The children loved the musical and as a result, they acted and sang brilliantly. The audience was full of praise with some saying it was the best Easter performance they had ever seen. One parent was particularly amazed that we were able to show what is a difficult story in such a "simple, sensitive and meaningful way". Thanks for providing such a great Easter resource."
by C Eaton

loved it
"Hello, we downloaded Easter Spells Easter and used it with our whole juniors last year. Teachers, pupils and parents all absolutely loved it. Just wanted to say thank you."
by Becky Roberts

Excellent
"Dear Learn2soar, I am a teacher and there have been many times when I have bought a musical from you and I must say that you offer excellent packages with high standards of scripts and wonderful songs. The last one I did this year was EASTER Spells Easter for Juniors which again was a great success. Many Thanks."
by R Fielding, Teacher

Very nice
"Very, very nice. This Easter musical was so easy to use."
by Deborah White

BRILLIANT
"We did E-A-S-T-E-R Spells Easter last year with a small cast of children with very different ages and it was B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T!"
by P Richards - Teacher

Fantastic
"Last year my Year 3 class performed E-A-S-T-E-R Spells Easter and it was fantastic!"
by Ian Boothe

I'm in awe of the standard
"I AM TOTALLY IN AWE OF THE STANDARD! I put Easter Spells Easter (for Juniors) on in assembly (for the whole school)... within a short space of time the children were singing along without me having to teach a thing! I played it again at the end of assembly and the children sang along with ease. The reception class were so enthusiastic that they skipped out singing it!!!"
by M. Kelly - Teacher / former Music Advisor.

The children love it!
"The children in our school absolutely loved Easter Spells Easter. They were singing it all the time!"
by P Hodkinson
