The children in this school are sick and tired of the teachers' boring lessons. The teachers are fed up with bored children who don't listen to them. Everyone is happy when the school year finishes and summer holidays begin. Everyone, that is, except the school principal who is rather unceremoniously replaced.

The new school year begins with a new school principal, Mr Wrathmore. The teachers are summoned to a staff meeting only to find that they are to be replaced by substitutes and imprisoned within the school. The children welcome this new change as the substitute teachers are strangely uninterested in teaching the children anything. The children enjoy this new freedom of doing what they want to do, whenever they want to do it.

Only Alan and Ana are suspicious. With some investigation they realise that something sinister is going on in the school. Wrathmore has an evil plan that could change the world as we know it. Can Alan and Ana free the teachers and then battle the forces of ignorance and apathy with knowledge and logic? Or will Wrathmore and his minions succeed in enslaving the minds of our children?
There are 17 lead roles with the opportunity for several students to have speaking roles.

The first of the main characters is The Principal who only performs in the first scene but the role requires a strong and charismatic performer.

Wrathmore is a diabolical villain (actually a worm) disguised as a school principal. It is his mission to feed the brains of the students to his worms. A fun character to play, he is the archetypal evil genius.

His sergeant-at-arms is Wrigley. This role requires someone with a good sense of comedy.

The two main students are Alan, who is the hero of the play, and Ana. Alan is bookish and sees himself as weak but he proves himself able to think his way out of trouble. He is helped and encouraged into his heroism by Ana. These two roles require strong actors.

Wilson and Phillips are the archetypal comedy bullies, interested in taking lunch money off others, harassing those weaker than they are and trying their best to not learn anything at school. They love it when the new teachers take over the school.

There are six teachers who take various classes and one substitute teacher who of course is one of Wrathmore's villains.

There are a ten songs in Global Worming, which may be rehearsed separately.
