Rock Toyz Key Points
Suitable for performance by cast aged eight years and upwards.
Duration varies between approximately 60 minutes when done in one act (Rock Toyz Jnr), and 90 minutes in two acts, not including the interval, when the full version is staged including the audience participation scenes!
Can be performed by an all female cast.
26 speaking parts of various sizes together with two chorus groups which are heavily featured in the show and are only limited in size by the dimensions of your stage!
Can be produced as a straight musical or as a pantomime.
The harmonized vocal arrangements that are in some of the songs, especially ‘Real For Real’, and ‘Burning Bright’, can easily be simplified down to a single vocal line on the main melody of the song when required
Can make an excellent dancing school production.
Both Performance Packs and Perusal Materials are available. To enquire about these please contact us via the email form on our contact page.
In the big house at the top of the hill there's something very strange going on. It's way past bed time and a little girls toys have come to life, complete with their own rock'n'roll soundtrack! - Reality has ceased, the Party has begun!
All is,"Tip o' the Mark" and "Hip to that Chart" until a new Toy arrives, then the action starts.
- Oh, and do remember - "Happy ever after is a State of Mind"!!
Rock Toyz blends the traditional story of Cinderella with the vibrant dance and energetic music of contemporary stage classics like Grease. It’s a fun, fantasy tale with attitude about what happens when the Toyz from the attic meet the Ratz from the cellar, with love, leather jackets, cartoon comedy, and 150 metres of ribbon thrown in! What more can we say?
“4-ever 2-gether, 2-hearts as 1.
The Ratz met the Toyz,
The Girl got the Boy.
It’s a wish for the sending,
It’s a rockin’ good ending.
And the moral of tonight?
Just keep it burnin’ bright.”

What People Say About
"This program was so successful and so appreciated by the school community that we received some wonderful letters and tributes to the cast as well as about the wonderful show and music."
Janette Borrie - Derinya Primary School, Australia.
"Everyone aged 4-16 loved working with Rock Toyz! They loved the music and found the songs great to learn. They are still singing them now (and so am I!)"
Samantha Oliver - StageCalls Theatre School - UK
"Our audiences LOVED the show. Here in the U.S, and in particular our town, no one would do a show like this with youth. Everyone else sticks to typical youth productions (Seussical, Annie, etc.), so this was quite a surprise."
