Rock 'n Roll Cafe The Rock 'n Roll Cafe
This show is a distillation of the rock 'n roll experience of young people in the late 50s, 60s and 70s - the heyday of rock 'n roll -  with music reminiscent of that era and references to veteran rockers like Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran, Journey and others. 
New Guy at School New Guy at School
A modern version of the classic of the classic novel Tom Brown's Schooldays by Thomas Hughes (the school story that created the framework for all school stories that followed, including  the Harry Potter stories) this musical with a basically rock feel. It is perfect for school productions and addresses a topic that has always been with us and which has been increasingly in the new: bullies and what to do about them.
