Talk about funny! This fifteen minute comical play (moderate or large cast depending on your needs) is suitable whether studying fantasy and fairy tales, the German culture or in a drama class. Students strengthen their reading (fluency), speaking (diction) and listening skills (restating) while learning to work cooperatively. The central themes include fate, ingenuity and cleverness.

Based on the Grimms fairy tale by the same name, students will have an opportunity to:

  • learn about "the director's concept" and help to create one
  • dramatize a fairy tale including a few puppets if you so choose
  • use unusual materials as stage properties
  • create comical characters

This product comes with:

  • a warm up focused on dialogue and the art of imitation
  • procedure or rehearsal schedule

Comprehensive? You bet!

"The Brave Little Tailor" is a fairytale that describes the events of the main character and his outsmarting with a giant. After he killed seven flies with one hit he thought it would be a good idea to see the world instead of spending his day in his tailor shop.

This is will be a very successful teaching and learning experience created by a veteran drama teacher of thirty-eight years.
