About the Resource

On Thursday July 6th 1972 teenager Shakey Threwer's life changed for ever. He saw David Bowie perform Starman on Top of the Pops and found his own vocation in life - to be a Glam Rock star!

Will Shakey's parents ever understand this new type of music? Are Shakey's mates ready to glam up? And who - or what - exactly is The Blockbuster?

With plenty of background music from the period this show is guaranteed to have all the young (and old) dudes tapping their feet and clapping their hands.

All music needed in the show is specified but needs to be bought; it can be downloaded cheaply from Amazon or i-tunes. If you are performing off site, or you don't already have a school PRS licence, then you will need to apply to the PRS for rights to use the music. We have negotiated this on your behalf - music rights will cost you less than £5 per performance. There is an application spreadsheet included in the script download which we have partially filled in for you with all the music details.

For a script sample and details of the performance costs, click here.

This is a very cost-effective school show with a running time of approximately one hour. There is no live singing in the show and it can therefore be performed by anyone.

There is a shorter (35 min) version of the play suitable for GCSE / BTEC exams. Called (We Were) Ziggy's Band you can see details here. Buy them both at the same time and get Ziggy's Band half price! Simply place both items in your basket and enter the code theziggybiggy at checkout for the discount to be applied.
