I have been browsing the internet for the past THREE hours in the hope of finding some Christmas music that will be as good as yours, but to no avail! We have performed every single song and musical you have produced, and I was wondering if there is anything in the pipeline this year? The children are huge fans too! Thank you for all your fabulous music ! It is all so uplifting and a real stress-buster!I think we may start again from the beginning of the Christmas Musicals. Nothing else out there quite matches up to Gottalife.
Angie Lunn(Devon Primary School)
I use your songs all the time in school and have just bought the new Values Book they are all brilliant. Having the words as a pdf file is proving invaluable.
K. Henderson(Primary Music Specialist)
Can I say a big thank you for your musical productions. We have sung quite a few and the children have loved them all. This summer just gone we did a performance of 'The Black Shadow' which went down a storm! A parent videoed the performance and was so impressed that, unbeknown to me or the headteacher, turned it into DVDs and now wants to sell them to parents to raise money for the PTA.
Alison Turner(Kings Monkton Primary)
I am a great fan of all your books � I think I own them all! Shame more teachers are not aware of your material, I�m doing my best to let them know!
Katie Geelan(Music Co-ordinator for Bury Lancashire)
Thank you so much for writing such a moving show �A HOME OF OUR OWN�. Everything about it has been brilliant. The songs are quite inspirational. I�m certain the real angels sung with us,
so amazing was the sound.
Margaret Morgan-West Park Primary School
Many thanks for the fabulous script and score � A CHILD IS BORN. We have just completed our fifth performance and everyone in the school agrees it was a resounding success! This was my fifth
year of putting on the school Christmas show and the feedback has been �The best yet�.
Anna McIndoe-Inverkip Primary School
A CHILD IS BORN was the first nativity for a few years. We�ve had no pianist, but decided this year to go ahead. The children were brilliant, and enjoyed taking part.
The songs were easy to learn � even for a non pianist. The overall response from grandparents and parents was �Wow � wonderful!� We shall certainly come back to you for our next production.
Phil Taylor-Great Clacton Junior School
The songs from �SING OUT 1� are absolutely great, especially �EVERYBODY IS SPECIAL TO GOD�. Keep sending me details of new publications please!
Kay Frances-Testwood Baptist Church
We have just performed two of your Christmas musicals, �THE LITLE FIR TREE & CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD, both have proved to be a real success. We have found them easy to organise
and the children responded well to the material. Many parents expressed their delight at their children�s achievement. One of the comments from one of the staff �We ought to invest
in some of their other material and we need never worry again!�
Mrs C Skitt-Wombridge Primary School
Dear Mr. Wright
We have enjoyed performing two of your Christmas musicals; they have been acclaimed by parents, staff and pupils alike. We have now got a dilemma for next year! Will there be another one?
Mead Vale Community Primary School
I just want to write and tell you what enormous pleasure your wonderful musical Christmas Around the World has given us!
Our concert for the parents is tomorrow and I know that all the children are going to be very, very sorry when it is over… for the last fortnight, instead of the usual yelling throughout
the school, we have had children singing your songs, as they move around the building, and everyone has abanded fighting for discussing costumes and helping each other learn their lines! Thank you
VERY much for sharing your wonderful talent with us, and giving us all so much joy.
High View Primary School
Dear James Wright
Just a quick message to say that Christmas Around the World has been brilliantly received by all the parents and other visitors today. It’s an excellent production. All children have
been able to have a very important role whatever their part. Any more productions in the pipeline for next year?
Baston C of E Primary School
Please could I take this opportunity to thank you for sending me the sample CD without which we would not have been aware of this fantastic musical, the children at our school are thoroughly
enjoying learning the words and dances for our production and we are already eagly awaiting their first performance. For myself the ‘pack’ has been an absolute Godsend!! A very well
produced package and an excellent idea. Congratulations to all concerned. Please keep us informed of any further productions. (I already have No Room For A Baby pack ready for next year!)
Limpsfield Junior School
‘No Room For a Baby’ was wonderful. Our 66 Year 4 children thoroughly enjoyed it. I most certainly will be using Gottalife Productions again – superb!!
Weddington Primary School
My son performed the No Room For A Baby play with his school this year. He really loves the music. We wondered if the music is available to buy. He would be very happy if it is!
No Room For A Baby – This is an excellent musical!
Westray United Free Church
This year we performed Christmas Around the World. I would just like to pass on to you our thanks. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning and performing the musical and the audience really
appreciated the children’s efforts. I had parents and members of the local community say to me that this was the best performance the children had ever done.
Gunnerside Methodist Primary School
We used From Tears to Joy this Easter and it was fantastic. The video was very helpful particularly for the actors; they could see what they were aiming for right from the start. The whole package,
book, CD and video was amazing value. Keep them coming!
Balham Baptist Church
We felt very privileged to be a pilot school for The Little Fir Tree. It was an amazing production well received by all. Each year they seem to get better and better!
The Little Fir Tree was a delight to watch. The music and dance routines were very effective and the story line contained a strong message of hope to us all. This was the best
children’s musical we have ever performed.
Kings Church Newport
Thank you for 'Christmas Around the World' which has given our school such a special and exiting time this Christmas! We look forward to next year's production from Gottalife.
John S Wallis (Headmaster) St. Levan C.P. School, Penzance
We sent for a copy of 'Christmas Around the World' to use for our carol service. We were looking for something different, yet would still tell the story and wonder of Christ's birth.
The musical by James Wright was the answer to our prayers. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the performance and message. Many came to me afterwards and told me that it was the best ever.
I think that this was partly due to the fact that the children really enjoyed the singing and dancing.
This now causes us a problem ! What do we do next Christmas? I felt that I should write to you firstly to thank both your company and James Wright for the script and to ask if you have a
catalogue with scripts so that we may give some consideration for our next nativity performance.
Mr K Wright - Doncaster Pentecostal Church
We would just like to say a very big thank you for sending us the production book and CD for the 'Christmas Around the World' performances. The children loved performing it, and the parents
all said that it was the best Christmas performance they had seen from the KS2 children. We also enjoyed practising the songs and dialogue, especially as we didn't have to write it all ourselves first.
We would be very interested in seeing any further Christmas productions you may have in the pipeline, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future.
Once again thanks very much, best wishes,
Judy Nestor - Year 6 Teacher - Birchwood Primary School, Polesworth
