Have you ever wondered what court would be like in Fairy Tale Land? Well, here is your answer. In a 3 scene play written for children to perform, the audience will get a humorous look at "life's little fairy tales".
Even better is the fact that this is an interactive play which invites the audience to help Judge Goose decide the fate of those before her.
Get ready for a play that will leave you basking in the joy of a "happily ever after" that your students and audience members won't soon forget.
Speaking Parts: 23 (several can be doubled as needed)
Non-Speaking Parts: as needed
Play Duration: 25-35 minutes (depending on endings selected by audience)

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I am a parent volunteer who has agreed to do a school play for my sons who are in fourth grade. There are 60 total 4th graders, not all of whom will be interested. This will be an evening production for parents to view... is this a good pick for this sort of play? Are costumes and set difficult?
Thanks for your questions.
First of all, the play runs about 20-25 minutes total, depending on how you choose to run it.
60 students is a lot- most could be included at courtroom audience members on stage that react to what is happening.
Sets can be very minimal or very elaborate. I have done it with both. It is a court room set up so a place for the judge, (the parents/audience members are the jury), the on-stage audience, and the reporters (who act as narrators).
What makes this play fun is that the audience members get to vote whether the character is guilty or innocent. Anytime I have done this play, students brought their own costumes. Again, these can be elaborate or simple.
Parents have been invited to any performance I have directed and have LOVED it!
If you choose to buy and perform, I am completely willing to help/advise in anyway possible.
I hope this helped to answer your questions. Have a great day.

Hello! Do you think high level 4th graders could do the play? Do you have it for middle school because of the content or the reading level?
Greetings! This is a fantastic question. I don't feel the content is inappropriate for 4th grade, or any grade for that matter. I think I marked it that way because I have only ever performed it with 5th and 6th grades. I am certain that high level 4th graders could pull this off.
I appreciate your question. I hope this helps. Have a fantastic day!
Greetings. Great questions. The play has 23 parts (many of which can be doubled) that have speaking lines. There are parts for extras that don't have speaking lines. The play, depending on which ending for each scene the audience selects runs 25-35 minutes. I have performed the play many times with 5th and 6th grade students. It is a lot of fun and relatively easy to do. Thanks for stopping by my store. Have a fantastic day.
