Product Description
THIS NEW PACKAGE IS PRICED RIDICULOUSLY LOW IN ORDER TO MOVE UP THE TPT SEARCH PARAMETERS BY GENERATING SALES AND REVIEWS.

One Night in the Woods mashes five classic fairy tales with five popular television shows to create an entertaining one act play that works as a classroom or extracurricular project. It’s Cinderella as an episode of The Bachelor, Rapunzel as The Amazing Race, and Red Riding Hood as a breaking news story!

The play can also be broken into five independent scenes, four of which work completely independently of the main script. Cast is variable from 4-16. Gender is 2 male and 2 female for four performers and lots of room for variation for 16. The play works as a small group or large group class project or extracurricular production.
The classic problem for the teacher who wants to put on a class play is finding a script that works well in the classroom situation. In most scripts, the parts are not evenly distributed. There are either not enough parts or else there are a few stars and only smaller roles for other students. What do most of the students do when the stars are rehearsing their large roles? After years of teaching drama and never being able to find scripts that worked well in the classroom, I began to work with students to write our own. Each of the plays in this series is a reworking of a story from fairy tales. Each play consists of three to five stories (each with four actors) knit together by a piece of narration / story that weaves the tales together in a satisfying and coherent whole. Each group of four students can be rehearsing scenes simultaneously so no one is sitting doing nothing.

In the writing process, the students chose a tale and begin to rework it, either by moving it to a modern setting or else by imbuing the story with modern sensibilities (like irony). I then worked with the students to rework the scripts during the rehearsal process until the scripts reached a level quality that we all felt good about.
One Night in the Woods includes modernized reworkings of “Cinderella”, “Rapunzel”, and “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Rumplestiltskin”, and Snow White.”

Performance rights are included in the modest cost of purchasing a single script!
