"The backing tracks are full of jingling swirling glittery effects for supernatural moments. Many of the songs tend towards a mood of uplift... the music for the nasty characters is justly more enjoyable, the driving rock of Hagbane's 'Wretched Child' and the light reggae of the wicked wizards' 'Take A Juicy Spider' providing the chance for extrovert 11-year-olds to say goodbye to their school by making a flamboyantly histrionic exit!" ~ Music Teacher Magazine

It was the best play I ever did! Wish I could do it all over again. Ii definitely recommend this to all teachers and pupils! We had so much fun working on it. There's absolutely nothing bad that i can say about this play - it was just the best experience ever!!!
Review by Christine Round - Teacher, Doncaster
The children loved the songs, they enjoyed the story but most of all they loved to hate the wicked crone - Hagbane! The whole production was a fantastic finale for our Year 6 children.

Review by Maureen Harrity - Deputy Head Teacher - North Yorkshire
Very good! The children found their lines easy to learn. There is a good balance between dialogue and music and the stage directions are very useful.' There are good opportunies for creativity with the costumes. The children enjoyed the story and the parents reponded very positively.
Review by Jessica And Nuala - Pupils, North Yorkshire
We really enjoyed performing 'Hagbane's Doom'! We especially liked the costumes and the songs. The songs weren't hard to learn and sounded amazing when we got them right. We loved our parts and are glad we got them. We found the script fairly easy to learn and very straightforward. We would definitely recommend Hagbane's Doom to other schools.
Review by Elisabeth Powell - Deputy Head, Cirencester
'Hagbane's Doom' is absolutely fantastic. The songs are superb, very suitable for children's voices and easy to teach, with great opportunities for dynamics. The children loved it!
