Choosing Plays

The categorisation into year groups is intended as a guideline only. Selection is advised in accordance with the interests, performing experience, reading ability and enthusiasm of your young actors.

Every script and musical for children to perform has been 'market tested' on varying groups of young performers, often in mixed age groups. Each performance was a resounding success and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

If you would like advice on which plays might suit your young actors, please contact Arts On The Move or call 0161 881 0868 and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.

Arts On the Move is sorry but the scripts, musicals, books and other materials published by the company are not available on approval.



The Arts On The Move shop is simple to use. Once you have found an item you wish to purchase, click the 'add to basket' button for that item. You will be taken to your shopping basket and that item added. You can then continue to shop, adding as many items to your basket as you wish. No personal details will be taken at this stage.

Having decided on your final purchases, adjust any quantities required in the 'view basket' page (remember to click 'update' if you do make changes). Then click the 'confirm order' button where your complete shopping basket, price and any postage and packing will be displayed.

When you are happy with your order, check the box to confirm you agree to our terms and conditions and then choose your payment method from the following:

  • credit/debit card through the PayPal secure server;
  • proforma invoice and cheque/money order;
  • (for UK schools only) proforma invoice and official purchase order.

You will be guided through the next stage where your payment and shipping details are collected.
