Each year my class performs a play on stage complete with curtains, sound, and lighting. When I run into my former students, even years later, they always say, "Remember when we did the play?" I adapted this script from "The Best School Year Ever," by Barbara Robinson because she was going to be visiting my school. Having my class perform this play for the author herself is a thrill I will never forget!
This script can also be used for a Reader's Theater if you are not interested in using it as a full production. It includes a 13 page script, as well as a list of characters. The number of roles can be adjusted by combining or separating parts, or having students read two or three minor parts. A few roles are also gender neutral and can be adjusted depending on the number of boys and girls involved.
