Product Information

    An interesting and sometimes fun (where appropriate) approach to re-telling the traditional Easter Story. The Twelve Disciples provide a commentary of the events leading up to the crucifixion and subsequent resurrection of Jesus in rhyme from ficticious diaries supposedly written as the events unfolded. We hear a little bit about the personalities of the disciples as they reveal their diary entries and their personal reactions to the events. The facts are then padded out with dialogue between the main characters which are further explored in ten original songs in a variety of styles and idioms ranging from the swing feel of the opening number 'The Twelve Friends of Jesus' to the pathos in song ten 'The Walk of Love.' The play has a cast list of 60 so could be used with two classes combined but the possibilities are endless. Actions and dance routines would enhance the songs greatly and help to make everyone feel valued and included.

We used the script "Disciple Diaries", written by Sally Kee, for our Easter production. As always Sally was a joy to work with. The script and music were well written, engaging and informative! The productive came together wonderfully, and I have been able to refer back to it during our RE lessons on the Easter story. Sally always has high expectations for pupils, but supports children to surpass them. The stage directions in the script were excellent support for us whilst rehearsing, and we were able to easily adapt the script to suit our needs. We all thoroughly enjoyed the Disciple Diaries. Thank you so much Sally!
