The Blue Crystal
NEW EDITION 2019 - with updated script and enhanced instrumental backing tracks.
'The Blue Crystal' is a sci-fi adventure set 1000 years in the future, with a simple plot, fast-moving script and a clear message about the importance of sharing scarce resources. The show is action-packed and full of humour - especially if the main character is hammed up as a superhero!
Following the depletion of Earth's natural resources, the planet's systems depend upon a key component: the Blue Crystal. When this crystal is stolen by the Zarcons (a warrior race from a distant and dying planet), the Earth people look to Captain Tor to regain the crystal and save the human race from extinction!
Along with an eccentric robot and four amusing clones, Captain Tor fights the aliens until he is confronted by the Zarcon princess - and a dilemma! Can they work together to save both of their planets?
"The 'Blue Crystal' is the first show of yours I've produced, and I've enjoyed putting it on more than any other production I've ever done at any school! The songs are catchy, the references are up to date, and the pupils really enjoyed the whole show." ~ Tony Gosling, Teacher, Kent.

Review by Nathan Gee, Age 11 - Pupil (crew Member And Scientist), Shropshire
'The Blue Crystal' was a fantastic success! The audience really enjoyed it and for the three nights it was on it went very smoothly and the songs were really great. I hope we will be performing another of your productions as we have already done 'Robin Hood' and 'The Blue Crystal.'
Another Great Success!
Review by Sue Sayles - Headteacher, Yorkshire
Another great success! We really enjoyed doing The Blue Crystal - and the audience loved it.
Review by Jane Fisher - Teacher, East Sussex
I have never seen children so immediately enthusiastic about a score.
Songs Are Infectious.
Review by Jane Harris - Principal, Stagecoach, Tamworth
'The Blue Crystal' might have been "custom made " for a Stagecoach School. There are parts for all ages and it can be rehearsed and performed in one term. The songs are infectious; the children had a marvellous time and the audience loved it!
