A&C Black’s schools musicals are a fun and easy way for children aged 7 - 13 to explore the theatrical side of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes

Taking themes and excerpts from the orchestral adaptations of the works, two teams of composers and songwriters have created six musicals based on the poems featured in Revolting Rhymes.

The musical versions are all designed for performance in schools by children with a wide range of musical skills and levels of ability.

If your school is interested in putting on a performance, you'll find all the information you need - including audio samples, performance packs and a simple online licensing system that allows you to apply for a license to put on any of the above musicals - on the A&C Black website.
