Great Story! The Cast Loved It!"
Suitors, Princess, Sultan - Monkton Central School, Vermont
"Your scripts are so great, simple to use and adapt, fun for the kids and the audiences, and perfectly geared to use with a young cast. The audience loved our production!"
Greg Tutt, Buford Elementary School, Lennox, CA
The School Play Package gives you rights to adapt the script, add characters, lines, scenes and songs! You also have the rights to make a DVD/Video of your special performance!
Written especially for young people to perform.
While you may find large cast plays from other publishers, most of those were originally written for adults or professional actors to perform. They often contain difficult dialogue, unfamiliar or complex language, and speeches too long for young children to memorize. They may even contain jokes, innuendos and subject matter that may not be appropriate for children.
Easy to understand and memorize.
Dialogue is simple, fresh, quick and humorous, keeping the action flowing without stops and starts between scenes. This keeps young people and young audiences engaged throughout the performance - no awkward pauses, no dead-time, no wiggles!
All children are involved throughout the performance. This builds confidence, promotes team spirit and eliminates rehearsal rowdiness. The audience is often asked to join in the fun, and action often spills into the aisles! All of our SCHOOL PLAYS give suggestions on how to divide up large parts (such as Peter Pan) among several performers so that no one child is the "star".
Familiar stories with upbeat endings.
The story line stays as close as possible to the familiar story the kids already know. While some authors feel the need to "improve" the story, our SCHOOL PLAYS stay as close to the familiar narrative as possible, making it easier for children - and your audience - to understand.
Feel free to edit! Go ahead and tape it!
Most publishers insist that no changes may be made to their scripts. We know that your goal is to engage every child in the most meaningful way and that your needs are unique. Cut, eliminate, re-assign lines, or add as much as you like! Also, there are no restrictions on video tapes. Parents want a tape or DVD to remember their child's big moment. Go ahead and tape away!
that the experience will be best for all when you keep a few things in mind:
Free yourself from worry about whether or not it's "good". No one is paying big ticket prices; no one expects a Broadway success. The key to making this project meaningful is to put the emphasis on process; realize that rehearsal and practice are as much a part of the experience as the actual performance. Encourage fun and you will free the children from embarrassment and stress. If the kids can't learn the lines let them carry a script or use their own words to convey the character's message. If they seem to wander the stage, let them explore where they want to go - they might surprise you with a wonderful idea. In every aspect of the process give them the wings to create and think. Give them a comfortable, supportive place to go and their confidence and self-expression will soar!
Above all else, make sure you are having fun. If you've never directed a play before, don't worry. It's all just pretend -- you can't do it wrong! The quality of your experience is every bit as important as that of the children. You need the joy of self-expression too, that doesn't go away when we grow up. So give yourself a break. And when all else fails, laugh!
Thank you so much for choosing Aladdin. I hope you and your young friends have as much fun performing this play as I did writing it.
Parts for Lots of Kids!

love your easy to use scripts and short lines for kids to memorize!"

ALADDIN (Large Cast Version)
Two Princes interviewed as potential suitors to marry Princess Jasmine.
(Script pages 24-27)
(STORYTELLERS set up stage for palace as SULTAN enters in a huff, speaking over his shoulder.)
SULTAN: Young lady I have had quite enough of your head strong ways.
JASMINE: But, father! If you would only listen to me!
SULTAN: I can't listen to you! It fills my ears with camel crud and monkeyfeathers!
JASMINE: Well, listening to you fills my eyes with tears, father!
SULTAN: Oh, my little apricot. When will you listen to your poor old papa? A princess must marry a prince! Now please, my dear. Just sit still and let us see how you like this next one.
(SULTAN seats JASMINE, claps his hands.)
(THOR enters with a bound. He makes a deep exaggerated bow then jumps up with arms up like an Olympic swimmer.)
THOR: I am here, your highness! I have arrived!
SULTAN: Now here's a worthy prince, my dear. From a different country but quite eligible. Show her how strong you are, Thor.
THOR: I am most gifted with a slender physique as you can plainly see... (Poses to show himself off.) And yet for all of this delicate splendor I am strong like bull! (Makes muscle in his arm.) You see this? Ha-hah!
(He lifts a set piece and poses with it as if his picture is being taken.)
SULTAN: You see, my dear.
JASMINE: (Yawning.) Ho. Hum.
SULTAN: Show her, Thor! Do something splendid.
(THOR points to an adult audience member in the front row.)
THOR: I could lift this sack of clothing right here in the front row.
SULTAN: (Clapping with delight.) Oh, yes, do!
(THOR goes to lift audience member. He struggles but can't lift him.)
THOR: This sack is too large. I could lift a smaller one if you like.
SULTAN: (Clapping.) Go on! Go on!
(THOR tries to lift a child audience member. Struggles, can't do it.)
THOR: This small sack is obviously stuffed with bricks.
(RANA crosses downstage cradling a baby doll, making baby crying sounds -- "wah-wah!". She hands THOR the baby doll. He takes it and lifts it above his head. He is triumphant, strutting and waving as he imagines adoring crowds.)
Ha! Ha! Strong like bull!
(Even the SULTAN can see this is lame.)
THOR: Huh? What?
(STORYTELLER BAKI begins to escort THOR away.)
THOR: I do not marry the princess?
SULTAN: You do not. Next please.
(THOR exits, dejected, carrying the baby doll by the foot. FARIS enters with PRINCE YOGI.)
FARIS: Prince Yogi, your highness.
(FARIS bows and exits. YOGI enters stumbling, with his nose in a book. He is nearsighted and clumsy, pushing his glasses to his face.)
SULTAN: This one is very smart, my dear. You'll see. Go ahead, say something smart, Yogi!
YOGI: Sorry, sir. Were you talking to me?
SULTAN: Yes, yes, Yogi! Read something from your book there. Something astute.
YOGI: Oh. Um. Well, here is a love poem.
SULTAN: Excellent. Read! Read!
YOGI: Roses are red, violets are succulent. I love you more than a smelly elephant.
(FARIS rushes YOGI away, they exit.)
JASMINE: Oh, father, don't you see? No matter how many princes you bring to me, I will love only one! The prince I met at the market today!
SULTAN: Nonsense! What kind of a prince goes skulking around in the market? Wait until you see the next one, my dear. You'll fall in love in an instant. (Clapping.) Enter! Enter!
(GEEWIZ enters and bows.)
GEEWIZ: Your highness, I present my master, Prince Omar.
(OMAR enters. He makes great sweeps of his cape as he bows.)
OMAR: Your highness. (He slinks up to JASMINE.) You told me of your daughter's charms, sir, but I see you were modest. Why, not even the stars in the sky can compare to these sparkling eyes.
(OMAR kisses JASMINE's hand. JASMINE rolls her eyes and pulls away.)
SULTAN: This would be a very good match for you, Jasmine. Omar is well connected.
OMAR: Did he tell you that I'm a magician?
