Published by Samuel French Ltd

Large Mixed Cast
In ancient Babylon, Daniel, King Darius's most valued and trusted adviser, is despised by all the other advisers because his true altruism and kindness hinders their money-making plans

They set a trap, tricking King Darius into ruling that anyone caught praying more than once a month must be thrown to the lions

Alas, Daniel, being devout, falls into the trap and King Darius, with much grief, is forced to adhere to the rule

However, Daniel, rewarded for his goodness and strength, is saved at the last by an angel

This charming one-act musical, written for key stage 2 students or children of a similar age to perform, lasts approximately forty-five to fifty minutes

It features a cast of delightful characters including a group of amusing Noël Coward-esque lions and has simple and inventive settings

The show can be accompanied live with piano or by recorded backing tracks - music not included
