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'.)

SynopsisWhen Anatoly Kazmarov, recently convicted head of international criminal gang STINK, is sprung from a top-security escape-proof prison, it is obvious that someone even more fiendish than Kazmarov is involved. This is clearly a job for The Secret Department's top man, the suave, debonair (but largely inept) Dirk Smirk. It's just as well that the impossibly beautiful Captain Tremaine is on hand to help him out as a plot to bring the world order to its knees gets underway.

When the contractors return, (with donuts to share), the actors make their sad goodbyes and exit. The clever Narrator, however, makes a discovery that saves the Renaissance Fair and brings the charming village of Notting-Sher-Wessex-Wood back.

StyleShort modern-English version of Shakespeare's tragedy. (Whilst the plot is all there, there are more comic moments than the bard envisaged.) The author has structured this in 13 acts, but don't let that fool you.
SynopsisAn ageing King Lear intends to retire and hand over his throne to one of his squabbling daughters. The Earl of Gloucester, on the other hand, does not intend to retire but his scheming son, Edmund, wants to take over the title anyway, even if it means by-passing the rightful heir, his brother Edgar. The two families' affairs become linked and a violent tale of treachery, jealousy and blind ambition ensues.
Despite the body count running into double figures, this is a comedy.
