Product Description
This bundle contains eight plays in my Shakespeare in 30 collection. Each play in this series has been adapted for teens to tackle in a half an hour. You can use these scripts for Reader's Theatre (1-2 class periods), Staged Readings (one week), or full productions (3-4 weeks+). These resources have been tested with students in grades 6-12.

The Comedy of Errors - a slapstick abridgment with a focus on the twins' antics. 10 roles.
Deceiving Christopher Sly - a mashup of Taming of the Shrew and the play from A Midsummer Night's Dream. Flexible casting, 9-15 roles.
Juliet & Romeo - an exploration of role reversal with an emphasis on combat scenes. 6F/1M.
Macbeth & the Witches - an abridgment focused on Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Banquo, and the witches. 7 roles and 11 extras (apparations, parade of kings)
A Midsummer Night's Dream - an abridgment with all subplots, 14 roles
Much Ado About Nothing - an adaptation focused on mime and strong vocal choices. 13 roles.
The Tempest - an abridgment with all subplots. 13 roles and extra mariners.
Twelfth Night - an abridgment focused on Malvolio's mistreatment, with a strong dose of cultural references. 6 roles.

"This resource provides the 'quick & dirty' of a drama, without the dragging on process of a 2-3 month unit. I also love that it provides teamwork and empathy, as my kids need to continue to realize the world doesn't revolve entirely around them!" -Victoria R.
