Product Description
This is a short play about wizards, magic, friendships, and talking animals, written for children aged 4-9. The play is a tale about Kanoa, an ordinary Hawaiian man, and a Wizard. The Wizard’s magic causes great chaos on the Island as she accidentally turns Kanoa into a monster and traps him in an inactive Volcano, as well as give animals the ability to talk.

The play was originally written to be customizable and flexible, so that the children in the play can help take part in creating the final script. You will see that in the package, I have provided a list of possible changes that you and your children can make together. I have found that introducing Mad Libs and incorporating the Mad Lib story making method when creating the finalized script with the children is both fun and effective. This method also gives you the ability to guide the children while still giving them the freedom of choice.

In the past, this script was used for a group of varied-aged children, who were split into 3 groups:
Group 1 were children aged 4-5, Group 2 were children aged 6-7, and Group 3 were children aged 8-9.
Separating the children into groups was a helpful method when placing the children into scenes and assigning characters as some characters/scenes had longer lines to memorize.

As this script was initially written to be a guideline for educators and camp leaders to use, many simple modifications can be made to suit you needs. This can include adding/removing characters, changing lines, adding scenes, etc.

I hope that you and the children enjoy putting this play together and be able to incorporate lots of original ideas into the script.
