    Used this for my Y6 class assembly last week and the whole school absolutely loved it. The gameshow format works brilliantly to engage children in the audience and turn something quite morbid into something highly entertaining! We added a few extra roles and sound effects where we felt appropriate but the whole performance was a huge hit with staff and pupils – Thank you Robbie!

    After studying the Mayan civilisation as for Humanities and taking part in the Past Production Maya workshop, my year 5 class performed the play for our class assembly. The script is well written and we added a few extra speaking roles for a class of 30. The class loved practicing the drama side and the whole school and parents enjoyed the final performance with the whole audience laughing along. Thank you Past Productions for the fantastic resource and making it an enjoyable experience for both teachers and students!
