Scouting helping to
make the world a better
place.
Written for 3 soloists
pus full cast. Builds up
as solo, then duet, then
trio, then full cast, with
trio singing the verse
over the top of cast
singing chorus.
A group of girls are not
so happy with their idea
of going on a hike. Fed
up and wet, they just
want to go home, but
Rebecca has other
ideas! (Written as all
girls, but could be for
boys or a mix)

Four 'musicians' meet to


form an orchestra. The
plot is purely a vehicle
for trotting out a host of
very bad musical jokes.
