Angel Small at The Mount School
In December 2014 The Mount School in York, put on the premiere performance of Angel Small, the Musical. Even though Angel Small was primarily written for Key Stage One, the whole primary age range got involved in the production. The older children were narrators and added in their own special dance.
The large auditorium was packed with friends and family. Reporters from the York Press came to interview the cast, staff and Karen, the writer.
Everyone enjoyed the performance immensely and made lots of positive comments after the show. People flocked to buy signed and personalised copies of the book. Karen even added comments about their super performances in the play.
The musical was also performed by Newby and Scalby School in Scarborough and Richmond C of E School. Karen (the author) and Gill (the illustrator) were able to attend all three performances.
"One of the best things about seeing my musical come to life is that even though people are using the same script and songs, each school interprets things slightly differently. It is a privilege to see your work come to life in such a vibrant and exciting way."
Karen Langtree, Author and composer of Angel Small The Musical
