Hats Off! - The Musical by Sue Gordon
RolesMinimum Male roles = 2. Minimum Female roles = 5. Minimum total with doubling = 7. Minimum total without doubling = 9. Chorus. A nucleus of seven actors, backed by a chorus (with no size limitations) singing the songs.
Run TimeAround 60 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicSheet music for seven songs (original lyrics to Victorian period music) is supplied with the Producer's copy of the script.
StyleMusical for children (could also be staged by adults for kids). Whilst by length we would class this as a one-act play, it is split into two acts and an interval is advised so that the single set can be redressed to mark the passage of time!
SynopsisMrs. Green is the real driving force behind 'Barker's Bonnets' a milliner's shop in Victorian England. However, she faces unemployment when Mr. Barker sells up to emigrate. A secret scheme is hatched to allow her to continue - and to thrive in the modern world of the 1870s. (The script tells an engaging story whilst exploring the novelties, inventions and social nuances of the Victorian world. This would fit well with the English National Curriculum Key Stage 2 History Topic, 'The Victorians'.)
