For Children

Songs and our Singthing musical plays

We have quite a number of songs for children. Many of the songs have been developed at the same time and from our Singthings, which are stories (first developed in the year 2000 by Peter Barratt BD, BA, PGCE) told in speech and song about the adventures experienced by animals, creatures and insects etc. They all have a simple moral.

The Singthings are suitable for children up to about 7 years and are generally appropriate to Key Stage 1 but some can apply to Key Stage 2.

Each printed Singthing has one principal and a number of sub-principal characters, a narrator and, of course, a chorus which can generally be of any number depending upon the number of children available and the size of the accommodation in which the Singthing is to be performed.

The Singthing musical play presently available in the Series ‘The Adventures of Dillon Dinosaur’ is called ‘Dillon Dinosaur The Super Hero’. The play has a duration of about 20 minutes and has a requirement of 7 principals, narrator, chorus and pianist. More details are available on Dillon’s website at
