Recommendations
by some who have already performed this show:-
"This play was very good for my purpose in having a large number of specific roles which gave cast members their own particular parts instead of being a chorus member. It was ajoy to perform and parents obviously enjoyed the fact that so many had a proper part to play. The score was very good."
Sarah Muffett, Pitmaston Primary School, Worcester.
"Very bright and witty piece with jokes working on several levels; 11 year olds enjoyed presenting it. Two nights of delighted parents and friends."
A. Mingham, Ranby House Preparatory School, Retford, Nottinghamshire.
"St. Bozo's is the most popular play (in the children's eyes particularly) performed in the past six years at St. Andrew's. It is our second production of the piece. The Year 8's have loved working with the script, which has lots of opportunities for cameo roles to develop."
Andrea Inglis, St. Andrew's Preparatory School, Eastbourne.
