BROOKLANDS BLOOMING CATS – SCRIPT FOR CHILDREN’S MUSICAL
It is better to have purred in the right direction, than never to have purred at all.
Cats!! From the purr, to the meow and the love of milk, the slit like pupils see, the triangular nose smells and the keen ears hear… that something is not right. The vibrant cats of Brookland’s School sense that all is unwell when their caretaker Mr. Morgan fails to show up to school with food for the day. Starving from hunger, annoyed at his betrayal of their stomachs and worried at the cause of his delay, when (whom they assume to be) Mr. Morgan finally does show up they rush to eat, none the wiser about a meal that will imprison them and have their claws harvested for gold by the stature-challenged and metal-obsessed, W’Evil. In this script for children’s musical, it is up to the cats to rescue themselves, rescue Mr. Morgan and save W’Evil from himself (probably) too. All in a cat’s 24 hours considering they sleep twelve to sixteen hours a day…
