Song Demos

"The audience loved every moment. I wish all kids' shows were
up to this standard." - Angie Rew, The Scotsman
"Kjartan Poskitt has once again produced a winning formula for a
colourful and comic children's show." - Brian Cooper, The Stage

Here are all the main songs from SAMMY's MAGIC GARDEN.

These recordings are not suitable for use in performances.

There are full details of the show's cast and content here: Kjartan Poskitt Shows

Sammy moves into an old house along with his lively mum and inventor dad. He quickly finds lots of spooky goings-on, but only his school friend Alice believes him. Why won't Compost the gardener let him look round? Who leaves messages in his homework book, who owns the mysterious doll that keeps appearing, is the birthday cake really poisoned, what is nasty Miss Nettle's secret and why does the sundial chime at midnight?

An all-year pantomime show with slapstick, music, mad jokes and a songsheet.
