The Selfish Ladybird Children's Musical

Childrens Musical - Speaking Parts For Ages 6 to 9

Lucinda the ladybird lives in a beautiful country garden. When she refuses to share a precious secret, she looses her ladybird friends. Lucinda goes in search of advice, discovering butterflies, grasshoppers, beetles and spiders along the way. Eventually she listens to the wise words of an oak tree, who helps her to understand that sharing is the key to making friends and keeping them. Predictably, there is a happy ending !  Any number of pupils can perform The Selfish Ladybird and there are good opportunities for whole-group and small-group singing with plenty of speaking parts for the older pupils.

Five Star Customer Review

Our children thoroughly enjoyed this musical, even the narrators ! We had a total cast of 66... The parents loved the Beetles/Beatles (George, Ringo, etc.) and I often heard children humming the songs over the preceeding fortnight.
