Musicals (Secondary)





Medium (5-11 activities)


England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales

Musicals are some of the most celebrated and popular films of all time and have been around since the emergence of sound films in the late 1920s! Classic films such as Snow White, The Wizard of Oz, Cabaret and West Side Story have delighted audiences for generations, with their glorious song-and-dance routines, delightful characters and timeless stories. The success of The Greatest Showman and La La Land proves the musical is as popular as ever.

There is an accompanying Film Literacy Activities pack available to download which contains worksheets referred to in the Powerpoint presentation.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
