Description

Summary: In the early 18th century at King George I’s court at Kensington Palace, what was it like to wear heavy court dresses? How did guests proceed through various rooms in order to stand in the presence of the king and queen? Three girls in the present time are about to find out as they pretend to be at court.

Type: True information, made-up story

Grades: 6-12

Cast: 5

Performance Time: 10-12 minutes

Because the actresses are playing multiple roles (think "Little Women"), this skit is for performing rather than for reader's theatre.

Where has this been skit been used?

  • Music-drama history productions
  • Drama showcases
  • Homeschool events

Extended Ideas: Court life could be an excellent topic to research. This could include dances, dress, food and entertainment, as well as manners of the time (e.g., titles of royalty, small talk, correct ways to bow).
