Product Description
Skeleton and Muscles Class Play
As our Narrator finds out, 'Head Shoulders Knees and Toes', however beautifully sung, is never going to 'do it' - not with an X-Ray Technician, Doctor and Physiotherapist around! And as for Halloween skeletons? Nah! Not if the bones are on the outside!
Cast of 30 - easily adapted up or down.
Duration - around 15 to 20 minutes.
Sample Text:
(Enter X-Ray Technician who takes one look at the ‘skeletons’ and falls about laughing)
Skeleton 1: Hey! What’s so funny?
X-Ray Technician: Well, to be honest (pauses) you!
Skeleton 2: Hey! There’s nothing wrong with us!
Skeleton 3: You’re not laughing at our costumes, are you?
X-Ray Technician: Well, I’m guessing they’re from last year’s Halloween?
Skeletons 1, 2 & 3: (Together, angrily) So?
X-Ray Technician: So, you can’t expect to be taken seriously!
Skeleton 1: And why not?
X-Ray Technician: Well, has anybody ever told you, human beings have endoskeletons?
Skeletons 1, 2 & 3: (Together) Endoskeletons?
X-Ray Technician: Yes, that means skeletons inside the body! That’s what makes my job so important!
Skeleton 2: And that job is?
X-Ray Technician: (Holding up an x-ray) I’m an X-Ray Technician. I can see inside your body!
(Skeletons all gasp and cross their hands in front of their bodies)
X-Ray Technician: (Laughing) No! Not with my naked eyes. But I can see every bone there is to see, with my special x-ray machinery!
Narrator: Aha! Some educational content! At last! I was beginning to worry!
X-Ray Technician: Oh no need to worry! With a little bit of help from your class, we’ll have everyone talking bones in no time!
Narrator: Well, that would be useful, I suppose. Our school science equipment certainly doesn’t run to x-ray machines!
X-Ray Technician: Of course not! And way too dangerous to have within a school building!
Narrator: But we do teach the children about their bodies. To a very high level in fact.
(Narrator gestures for Child 1, 2 & 3 to step forward)
So, children. What have you learnt so far?
(Child 1, 2 and 3 launch into a lively version of ‘Head Shoulders Knees and Toes’; Narrator looks on smiling, whilst X-Ray Technician holds his head in bemusement)
(Narrator, seeing the ever increasing look of bemusement on X-Ray Technician’s face, stops the singing)
Narrator: (To X-Ray Technician) What is the matter?
