I’m Fay Evans, a children’s author, storyteller and musical theatre maker based near Manchester. I write fabulous rhyming stories for picture books, which are loved by toddlers and primary school children. I deliver interactive author visits at schools across the country, engaging children in the storytelling to help bring my books to life.
Introducing… Fred: The Musical
Fred: The Musical is a brand new stage show for children based on my book, Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon.
Aimed at toddlers and primary school children, the show is packed full of life and laughter, with lots of pantomime-style audience interaction.
Fred: The Musical will delight youngsters and their grown ups, potentially providing many young audience members with their first experience of live theatre.
All About The Show
Fred: The Musical has a simple all-rhyming narrative and catchy, sing-along songs. The lively musical score features a mix of styles including a full-on power ballad, performed by the show’s leading man – a lovable dragon.
Fred is a lonely young dragon whose fiery sneezes cause chaos at school. He is teased by his human classmates, until he accidentally saves the day. The pupils eventually learn to accept and celebrate Fred, who goes from ‘zero to hero’ in this heartwarming tale.
At the heart of the show are themes of friendship, diversity and inclusivity. Fred: The Musical encourages children to accept those that are different and demonstrates that everyone is good at something
The script and score are all fired up and I’m excited to take the show ‘from page to stage’ with help and support from the MMD community.
