Adaptations of Classical Literature

Our classic plays are creatively written to make them appealing and understandable to young actors in upper elementary and middle school, and well into high school. They provide an opportunity for children to enjoy and develop an appreciation for literature to help them in high school and college. Also available are beloved children’s tales, designed for the sophistication of young actors, rather than the typical fairy tale plays for younger children.

These plays follow the traditional story lines with minor modifications, a little added humor, and age appropriate language, which make them more exciting for young actors. The plays also help students at this awkward and difficult age to develop confidence, creativity, and a love of performing.
