I went to see this recently and loved one of the dances but I don't know what song it went with. It was where the cast sing a clever alphabet song while alphabet blocks are pushed through the iron gates. Can anyone help please?

it's called the school song. we've been listening to it constantly since we went recently!

There are versions on YouTube with the lyrics but unfortunately not any full clips from the show of the fabulous choreography for that song. And after me

Cos your life as you know it is ancient history,
I have suffered in this jail,
I have been trapped inside this cage for ages,
This living hell...

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

The choreography was amazing - timed to perfection and the trust between the dancers and the block pushers (not good on techinical terms) was amazing. Thank you.

That was one of my fave bits in the show too. We have the cd and have played it in the car hundreds of times. 9 year old ds can now do that song in its entirety grin.
