The Tooth Fairy
A musical for 8-11 year olds by Dave Brown and Patience Scott-Brown (copyright dlbmusic Jan 2008) and published in March 2008. (ISBN 0-9558348-0-6)
and the Shepherd Boy
This is a simple and light-hearted story set in a rural and timeless place. The story is of a young shepherd boy who, after a terrific storm, wakes up to discover a girl sleeping under a nearby tree. She is a Tooth Fairy who does not initially reveal her true identity, but does reveal that she has lost her bag. The Tooth Fairy and the Shepherd Boy travel together and get to know each other while looking after the flock of sheep. They are “stalked” by three Wolves who are on the look-out for a tasty meal. They are ineffectual as Wolves and never actually catch any sheep. However, they get to sing a great song – “Rock around the Flock” – and have many interactions with the audience.
Meanwhile, in the village, Mr & Mrs. Shoemaker and their children, Sergeant Smith and The Old Lady find a colourful bag and set about trying to discover who might own such an interesting item. They hatch a plot to stake out a tree in the village and eventually meet up with the Tooth Fairy and The Shepherd Boy. Click here to listen to the famous "Looth Tooth Song".
In the final scenes many secrets are revealed and the Wolves come to an unexpected end after they are caught during the final song.
Fun for all the family with a range of parts to involve a larger group of young performers.

Compact Disc (CD)
One of the most daunting things for non-specialist teachers is the prospect of “playing” the music for these productions. To alleviate this fear we have included on the CD a full vocal version of each song as well as a version of the accompaniment without singing. Each CD is a multi-media CD, so there are copies of the script in WORD and PDF formats. Where appropriate we have included any suitable artwork or logos for you to use in publicity materials.

Copyright and Licensing
Licensing Arrangements: To perform any music or dramatic work in public a Licence is required. For UK Schools, a Licence for Music is often provided, on a collective basis, by your Local Education Authority, but for musico/dramatic works a Licence is required. These fees help writers and publishers to produce new materials that, at the end of the day, support schools. Our licence fees are set with the knowledge that schools do not have large audiences and we hope they will seem very reasonable. The Licence for performance will prevent any further action being taken. You can perform in peace. Further information can be sought from the MCPS-PRS Alliance.
