Content details

(Scroll down for characters and plot summary)

Do you remember your first day at school? Or the first time you were sent to see the head? What about first time you stood on the starting line clutching an egg and spoon? School is the place where we experience many ‘firsts’, and the most memorable can be re-lived through the songs and sketches in this hilarious, emotionally-charged new musical, which promises to deliver a bucket-load of laughs…and tears! Whatever else your children, their teachers and parents remember about school, this is a production they’ll never ever forget!

Plot summary

Four nervous candidates are waiting to be interviewed for their first ever job! As they sit in a state of agitation they begin talking to each other about life before they entered the big, bad world, and reminisce about the safety and security of being young and going to school. (song – ‘Do You Recall?’) As they recall many of the ‘first times’ that school provided, it soon becomes clear that perhaps it wasn’t the plain-sailing, easy life they at first remembered it to be!

Take your first ever day at school, for instance, and witness one family’s chaotic start to the morning. (song – ‘My First Day At School’) Will the crying stop long enough to get little Milly into her new school shoes and out of the door?

And learning to tell the time? The frustration, the confusion, the pain…and that was just how the teacher felt! (song – ‘Telling The Time’) Making sense of a clock for the first time is far from easy, as we see in this scene!

Waiting outside an office brings back a very memorable ‘first’ for the interviewees – being sent to the head! What horrors lie in wait behind the door for a group of little ones who’ve been sent from the classroom in disgrace? (song – ‘I’ve Been sent To The Head’) Are the tales of canes and slippers, told to them by parents and grandparents, real or just folklore from a dark and distant past?!

The first shot at sporting glory we ever get is taking part in the much celebrated Egg and Spoon race. For the watching parents it might only be a camcorder moment at which to go ‘Aaaah!’, but for the competitors it’s the chance to be a hero! And every dirty trick in the book will be used to ensure this chance is not wasted! (song – ‘Egg And Spoon’)

Who remembers the first time they were allowed to attend an after-school club? The promise of something exciting, out of the ordinary! For the group of children in this scene, perhaps the reality might not quite live up to the expectation! (song – ‘Football, Netball, Drama, Dance’)

And finally, primary school gives us another first – our first real goodbye. Leaving at the end of year 6 introduces us to new feelings and new expectations. Life seems to be getting more serious, but at the same time more exciting. All of this is wonderfully captured in the final scene, and song – ‘The End Of The Road’
