    Waggin' it WAGGIN' IT - a rock musical
    Music by Neil Orchard, book and lyrics by Roy Smith
    A fantasy which examines the 'generation gap' - and its causes. The bulk of the cast and chorus are runaways inhabiting a vast playground. Dickensian adult characters endeavour to lure them out. Some familiar political stereotypes are also present. Great humour & sharp satire surround this look at issues close to the hearts of the students, with great songs in a wide variety of musical styles designed to appeal to a teenage audience. 120 min. 2 Acts, fixed scaffolding set, 38 speaking parts + flexible kids chorus, bingo wives & reporters. 9 musical numbers.

    Available: script (with lyrics), lyrics, piano/vocal score, vocal score, band parts (flutes, Bb parts, Eb parts, trumpet, trombone, guitar charts, bass & drums), vocal CD, video.
