The Dream Dealer

Dream Dealer

By Marita Phillips & Harriet Petherick


What starts as an ordinary school playground with ordinary teenage tensions, gangs and cliques, takes a sinister turn when two strangers arrive at the school. One is a new girl, with good in her; the other a charismatic street salesman with only bad.

Finn is a dreamer and the school geek. Apart from his pet mouse, Hercules, his life is lonely. Then Delphi arrives and the two instantly become friends. However, their friendship takes a difficult turn and their integrity is then tested by the arrival of the other stranger at the school gates; the Dream Dealer. Although it might seem he's only selling ice creams, the schools coolest gang soon finds that this Pied Piper sells habits that can ruin your life. And what is that he has glowing in his Jar...?


6 M, 5 F Principals, gender changes possible however, and three character roles can be played by older children or adults if the director wishes; the many playground groups can grow or shrink to make a cast of anywhere between 11 and 60.


The Dream Dealer is a contemporary musical show, designed to be easily staged by schools. It has minimal sets and props and can mostly use children's everyday clothes for costumes.
