Royal Wedding Class Play - A Quick Gallop Through the English Monarchy
This is the the first of a set on the Royal Wedding,written by Sue Russell and available off www.plays-r-ussell.com . April 29 2011 is likely to be a huge event - celebrated worldwide. Why not use this great occasion to familiarise your students with The English Monarchy - warts and all!This play is around 10 minutes in duration and, while written for a class of 30, can be used for a group of between 10 and 40 children (easy adjustments explained in the Production Notes). The content of this production focuses on William's ancestors and leaves one wondering if Kate (sorry, Catherine!) has been fully 'prepped' on the royal family - with all its highs (Alfred the Great) and lows (toss up between King John and Richard III!). Maybe it's just as well she isn't fully acquainted with her predecessors - or she might think twice about that walk down the aisle!
(Complete listing of English Monarchy included)This play could be used as part of a project on Great Britain - with other plays, including Readers Theater with 6 speakers each, On Great Britain and specific ones on England, Scotland and Wales available off www.plays-r-ussell.com Any requests, contact Sue - always happy to help.
