Product Description
Are you looking for a great way to end the year with your students by giving them a taste of what it’s like to be in a full-blown main stage production. . . .but not have put on a main stage production with them? Would you like your students to have a meaningful experience with issues relevant to teens? Look no further than this Semester Final Production Bundle!

This production bundle features a short dramatic original play entitled Freak Psycho Loser and is designed to cast your entire class (no matter the size) with yourself or a strong student as the director. The rehearsal process is designed to take place over 5 weeks of rehearsals, journal prompts, class discussion, costume decoration, and more.

Freak Psycho Loser is about Kelly Daniels who is returning to her high school for her ten year reunion, but she is haunted by the voices of her past. Hurtful voices. Voices of the students who bullied her from the moment she arrived in that town until she graduated. This original play features a female protagonist and a very flexible size Greek chorus throughout the production. The entire class is always present on stage throughout the entire production and no matter the size of your class, everyone gets a few lines to say here and there. It also features a few supporting roles, many of which can be male or female. Whether you have a class of 10 or 40, this short play can work for you!

Don’t worry -- this play features no set, no props, minimal costumes, only acting blocks or chairs needed, and all the music tracks are provided for you in this bundle! It couldn’t be easier!

In addition to this, you will find guided journal questions, delving deeper into the subject material with your students and finding applications to their own daily lives. You will also find everything you need to be able to make this a successful production.

In this bundle you will find:
