  • THE JUNGLE BOOK: ‘the excellent live music epitomises a stylish and accomplished show’ THE TELEGRAPH
  • BRONTË: ‘A show that must surely have a future in the British musical culture’,THE STAGE
  • DEVILISH: ‘A new musical composed, directed and produced by some of the brightest talents in London Theatre including BB Cooper as Composer and Chris Burgess on Book and Lyrics’ LONDON THEATRE 1
  • GOBLINS DON’T SCARE US: ‘This beguiling tale of bewitchment set in the distant kingdom of Ravenswood is certainly welcome in the midst of Cinderellas, Aladdins and Dick Whittingtons. It is refreshing to find a show inhabiting a more unfamiliar world. …captivatingly conjured. Mark Shenton, THE STAGE

When composer BB Cooper was commissioned by Neal Foster of Birmingham Stage Company, to write the music for a stage adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s THE JUNGLE BOOK, no-one could have predicted that the show would go on to enjoy four successful national tours playing in around 100 theatres. Very soon she was being approached by amateur theatre companies and schools worldwide who wanted to perform the songs. She found this enormously rewarding but the songs needed a script so she invited Toby Hulse to write a new adaptation as a musical.

This new adaptation, directed by Martin Berry, will be shown for the first time at Nottingham Lakeside in July, following which the show will be available for performance by amateur and professional companies.

All shows are available for licensing with piano vocal/small band scores. There are ample opportunities for small or large ensembles.

are BRONTË (9 plus doubling), DEVILISH (10 plus), GOBLINS DON’T SCARE US (7 plus) and THE JUNGLE BOOK (7 plus).

For choreographers and dance companies there are two contemporary dance shows, GHETTO 1577 and LA BOHÈME.

Song cycles are IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (four songs) and AS YOU LIKE IT (six songs).
