Are you looking for an easy play to put on for an assembly, home school gathering, chapel, or parent program? Readers’ Theater is a great way to create a performance without memorizing lines.
We have developed imaginative plays covering the themes of Friendship, Kindness, Helpfulness, Bullying, and Compassion. These character-building themes are developed with relatable characters, fun dialogue that captures audience attention, and easy prop suggestions. Your readers can sit or stand in a row near the microphones while other students are center stage acting out the story being told. This guarantees all students participate at some level in this valuable theater experience.
Included are the following plays: In The Good Samaritan at Your School a little boy is bullied until a friend stops to show him compassion. The Princess and the Frog follows the Princess as she is able to look beyond Frog’s outward appearance and her kindness changes him back into a prince. Don’t Mess with Chad is a fun, rhyming play about Chad the Caterpillar who is sad, lonely and different than the other butterflies but is able to rescue them in an act of kindness. In Bullying Is NOT Okay!, children learn an important lesson about how words and actions can affect the feeling of others. A Tale of Two Farms
takes the audience on a visit to Grumpy Farm and Happy Acres to discover the importance of helpfulness within families. Audiences and actors will both remember these on stage experiences as one of the highlights of their year.
