Production Details - Junior Edition

The Junior Edition of the show is suitable for performance entirely by Years 3-6, to allow children studying the book to bring the story to life themselves.
The script has been slightly shortened and the music is simpler than that in the Full Edition (largely limited to one melody and one harmony line at any one time), and the vocal range is reduced. "This Land is Mine" is omitted from the Junior Edition, and "River Song" is optional. Several other songs have been shortened, see the Songs page.
A Scheme of Work has been produced to accompany this edition, to support using FoFTM as a resource in your school. This consists of six cross-curricular lesson plans including teaching activities and printable worksheets, and includes excerpts from the show for classroom use.
