IS THIS PLAY BEST FOR YOUR SCHOOL?
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.
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
several performers so that no one child is the "star".
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.
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!
Kathryn Schultz Miller
is one the most prolific and most produced playwrights for
children. Her script, A THOUSAND CRANES, won the National
Endowment for the Arts Playwright Award (and countless others) at a
time when plays for children were not considered serious works. Now,
many of her published scripts are considered classics for young
audiences. When teachers voiced their need for great plays that
kids can perform Ms. Miller responded with ArtReachs School
Plays: I never dreamed Id write for anyone other
than professionals. But writing for child performers has been
the most profound and rewarding experience of my life.
FROM THE PLAYWRIGHT
past few years we've seen a
tremendous increase of confidence in the teachers we hear from.
Most are finding it easier to let the process flow and worry less
about the final product. I firmly believe that the experience
will be best for all when you keep a few things in mind:
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!
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!
so much for choosing Aladdin.
I hope you and your young friends have as much fun performing this
play as I did writing it.

interviewed as potential suitors to marry Princess Jasmine.
(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
(He lifts a set piece and poses with it as if
his picture is being taken.)
SULTAN: You see, my dear.
SULTAN: Show her, Thor! Do
(THOR points to an adult audience member in the
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
(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
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.)
(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
(OMAR kisses JASMINE's
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?
