Plays

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.

Classic Act Plays have been performed by students at upper elementary, middle school and high school levels, including children with disabilities and second language learners. The scripts are designed to be flexible for different groups and settings. If necessary, multiple parts may be played by an actor, or plays may be expanded to include more actors. Many roles can be played by males or females. The plays are designed to be performed and include stage directions, but they are very effective for Reader’s Theatre also. But be warned, the kids will be itching to perform the roles after reading the scripts.


A Guide to Introducing Theatre to Young Actors


This guide is available to assist in teaching young performers about the theatre and stage terms, script format, auditions, blocking, and more. Tips are offered for costumes and props for a low-budget production and ways to involve kids in all aspects of theatre production. Not everyone needs to be an actor! Stage managers and crew, costume people, set designers and painters are also a crucial part of the theatre process. These tasks offer a way to offer participation to a whole class or all the members of a theatre group.
