Mark Clark

Music, books, plays, musicals & educational resources

Mark Clark is an Aussie songwriter, scriptwriter, voice over, author and drama coach. He was Pip in the ABC's version of Ethel Turner's Seven Little Australians.

How it all works

Each play is packaged as an on-line download. Each has: synopsis; cast list; script and song lyrics and author’s notes (about any pitfalls we had during performance) and several have piano vocal scores and one has full individual instrument scores. If you prefer to use backing through a P.A., rather than a live band, every play has full musical backing, as well as the final version of each song with main vocals, so the students can learn them. They can even mime if they can’t sing a note. Not all cast members have to sing though.

These plays are funny and satirical. In places you may think they require a little censoring, depending upon your audience and we have no trouble with that. All scripts arrive in the .doc format to facilitate this.

Your school can put on one of these plays for just $499 for as many shows as you like (in one run) and 10% of the door for each performance.

About royalties

24 hours after this information has been received, you will be sent an invoice for the required amount using PayPal, the world's most trusted payment processor. This can be easily paid using any major credit card.
