Review by Cassy Steel - Head of Yr3/4
We produced this play with a cast of 54 children from Years 3 and 4. It was a phenomenal success. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsals and performance due to the play's varied scenes and humour, and its superb music. Feedback from the audiences indicated that this was a highly entertaining piece with fast-flowing action, humour and melody. Nick Perrin's musicals are always of the highest calibre and entertaining for both children and adults involved in the production.
A Brilliant Play, Very Fun

Review by Zoe - Student, South Yorkshire
A year ago, I got to be part of 'The Keymaster' as the Keymaster! My younger sister also had numerous roles in this production. We thoroughly enjoyed performing it and got a encore request and standing ovation every night! As part of a theatre school, my sister and I have been in many shows, but we always keep the school production of the Keymaster, a favourite! Of course, the teachers were a massive help and were like our very own directors. The Keymaster is a production we will always remember, an excellant script and excellent show!:)

Review by Matt Hood, Eco Co-ordinator
As a school, we wanted to stage a production that was fun, exciting and above all gave opportunities for the children to learn. The Keymaster allowed us to enjoy all three. The songs were an instant hit with the children and the audience came away singing them as well! Our pupils were interested in exploring the characters and researching the scenes in order to learn more about history. A great way to get children engrossed in Music, History, Literacy and above all...sustainability and environmental issues!

Lots of fun, lots of fantastic tunes, lots of learning! We all loved the music, particularly the different styles, as well as the message that underpins the show.
Review by Parent - Somerset.
'The Keymaster' was a fabulous production. It was refreshing to have a new, well-written and humorous musical that was performed so well. Everyone involved excelled themselves and the musical arrangements were fantastic. I didn't stop smiling!
Review by Margaret Puetz - Music Specialist - Crewe
The songs were well received by the audience. The show was easy to split between classes.
Everyone Loved It.
Review by Emma Bright - Music Co-ordinator, East Sussex
We performed 'The Keymaster' and everyone loved it - the children loved learning the songs and your great service and clearly laid out director's pack made it a stress-free performance for us. For me personally the best aid was your powerpoint of all the lyrics. We had more than 240 children who needed to be taught all the songs - you saved me hours!! Looking forward to learning another great Starshine production! Thank you.
