Plot Summary

Just think about it – the events of a typical school week transformed into an evening’s worth of television programmes! What a riveting and entertaining viewing schedule it would make! Well, we’ve done it! Welcome to the first broadcast from STV (School Television), hosted by the ever-popular presenters, Ben and Amy.

Turn on, tune in and relax, as your eyes and ears are bombarded with musical televisual treats, which will give you an insight into the poignant and often hilarious world of school. Whether you’re a soap fan, a quiz show devotee, or a reality TV addict, we promise to cater for all tastes, and provide you with a memorable evening’s entertainment.
First up ‘Class Act’, a new soap opera which follows the dramatic happenings during wet playtime! Learn from expert nursery nurse, Jean Jolly, as she shares her unique brand of discipline with the under-fives, in ‘Little Blighters’. Expect more than a few barbed comments from host Dudley Nightshade as he fires those test questions, in our quiz show ‘Deadweight’. Cringe as more would-be singing stars try to impress the judges and gain a place in the school choir, in our talent show ‘Y Bother’. Join genial caretaker, Sam Handy, as he and his crew take on maintenance challenges in and around school, in ‘DIY Distress!’. Be a fly on the wall as we follow the ladies on the frontline of lunchtime law enforcement, in ‘Supervisors’. And as some of us say a final goodbye to primary school, enjoy an opportunity for some calm thought and reflection, as headteacher, Miss Conduct, leads the congregation in ‘Assembly Time’.

So, just sit back, and in the words of our signature song,
“No changing channels,
Drop that remote-control,
‘Cause it’s Lights, Camera, Action!
We’re ready to roll!”

    I would highly recommend this play for an end of year production. It was so well written, with great songs and made my life a lot easier at this hectic time of the year. The children loved performing the play and all of the audience ( pupils, parents and staff) thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely be using Edgy Productions again this year.

    Wow! What a fantastic show! The audience were enthralled, totally quiet in between enormous bursts of laughter and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The feedback I received was the most positive ever including ‘The best Y6 show ever!’

    Both adults and children found the whole production fantastic, brilliant. We could have filled the school hall many times. The feedback from the parents was very, very positive. The children really enjoyed the content and the adults could relate to the incidents mentioned.

    A fantastic production – it is one of the first I have used from your company but it certainly won’t be the last. Everyone really enjoyed it, especially as you could adapt the script so easily to accommodate your school and the characters in it. I only had 15 year 6s – so they doubled up the parts and with 18 year 5 to help sing the songs – it was a very memorable afternoon for all. Most of the parents were in tears and the year 5 are already begging me to find a leaver’s production as good as last year. Thank you and keep up the good work.

    Made with excellency! Although I didn’t perform it, watching this production was fun all the well! Would definitely recommend if you want a laugh, but not so much a leavers musical.

    I had great fun performing a cherry cola. Easy to learn lines and fun to do, easy to learn songs. We all enjoyed it especially the Lunchtime Frontline, I will never forget the boys in drag!

    Just received our copy of Lights Camera Action and can’t wait to get started. The script is hilarious and I can already see who will be perfect for each role. The part with the lunchtime supervisors is going to go down a storm with our dinner ladies! Boom! You’ve pulled out the big guns Edgy. Will let you know how our show goes!
