PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Brief History of Space Class Play
Written by Sue Russell
Cast of 25 (easily adapted up or down)
Duration 15 - 20 minutes (up to 30 minutes with inclusion of music)
This play includes 8 Astronauts, 8 Astronomers, 8 Scientists ... and a rather 'challenged' Narrator! It covers a brief history of Space, the final section attempting to throw a little more light on this fascinating but sometime rather bewildering subject!
This is the first of a series of scripts on Space, written as a set of 4, the others being The Planets, The Ancients and the Stars and Stepping Back into Space: Past and Future. These can be bought separately along with Space Quiz (latter available separately) based on the scripts' content plus a few other 'fun facts'! All available off TpT and www.plays-r-ussell.com
Sample Text
Astronaut 4: And let’s not forget us women! We weren’t going to be left behind in the kitchen! I, Sally Ride, was the first American woman in space – in 1983!
(Exit Astronaut 3 & 4)
(Enter Cosmonaut 3 & 4)
Cosmonaut 3: ‘Course, I was actually there ahead of her, in 1963!
Narrator: (Shaking his head) So competitive, these space people!
Cosmonaut 4: Well, it was a race, remember!
Narrator: And you are?
Cosmonaut 3: Valentina Tereshkova
Cosmonaut 4: And Alexei Leonov
Narrator: (To Cosmonaut 4) And your claim to fame?
Cosmonaut 4: I was the first human to walk in space! 18th March 1965. ‘Course, it wasn’t a total ‘stroll in the park’
Narrator: Er, no. Was that what you were expecting?
Cosmonaut 4: (Rolling eyes) That was meant to be a figure of speech! But I sure wasn’t expecting my space suit to swell up like a balloon – to the point where I couldn’t get back into the space craft!
Narrator: Woo! Scary! So how did you fit back in?
Cosmonaut 4: I had to first lower the air pressure in my suit
Narrator: Lucky you knew what you were doing!
Cosmonaut 4: Hmm. That bit wasn’t so hard. But finding our way back …. We ended up landing 1,200 miles wide of our landing site – up in some mountains!
