Mary Poppins meets Bad Education in this comedic romp about a cover teacher just trying to educate some "charming young delights". Packed full of creative characters and interesting sketch comedy where patience and charm wears thin, you will get immersed back into your childhood delinquency as you recognise the class clowns we used to be. Get ready to see and participate in this diary of a cover teacher, as she walks us through the ups and downs of your average day in a classroom. 'Miss! Did you know Beyoncé can see our same moon?'
