Primary School Plays

Great for younger children (ages 5 to 7)!  Stella the Starfish explores the theme of being helpful to others. When Stella is found, lost and alone, by two children, they agree to help her find her family. They are transported into the ocean by a magic shell and seek the advice of the colourful sea creatures. None are able or willing to help, except for Sid the singing shark, who helps to reunite them with Stella's family. Stella the Starfish offers great opportunities for whole-group, small-group and solo singing, with a flexible character list to suit your pupil numbers.

Five Star Customer Review

'Stella The Starfish' was perfect for our 78 Year 2 and everyone had a part. I love the way the script is set out - so easy to use. The songs enabled solo and group singing, were catchy and loved by the children... thanks for a great production. (Teacher @ Thatto Heath Primary School)

Our children thoroughly enjoyed learning and performing 'Stella The Starfish'. The songs were easy to learn and the children loved the story line. Sid the shark was very popular !
