The Lorax is the story of a boy who's looking for answers. Living in a ruined town, this little guy wants to know the story of the Lorax, so he goes to the Once-ler, an elderly inventor/manufacturer who tells the boy how the town came to be ruined, and most importantly, what he can do to turn things around.
This theatrical adaptation is written specifically for the classroom in mind--adapted for the novice actor with an easy to follow format as well as simple stage directions for the teacher--with 25 individual parts each having at least 2 lines of dialogue. It breaks far, far away from the traditional multiple "Narrator" roles that you see on TpT, and actually gives each child a named part. Run time is roughly 30 minutes.
This script has already seen a few successful productions on the school stage with students as young as early 2nd grade, with full costumes and set pieces.
Whether your class is celebrating Read Across America Week, Dr. Seuss' Birthday or Earth Day, it's always a hit with both students and parents alike!
