This is a small group Reader's Theater for 5 students. The witch's part is smaller than the rest. It is a twisted version of Sleeping Beauty. The moral is that inner beauty is more important than outer beauty. It wasn't written to be funny as but to teach a lesson. Students did enjoy it and it was fun for my students to compare with the original story. If you like it, you should try the twisted tales pack! I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. My scripts are in black and white with only the occasional color picture on front so they are easier and cheaper to photo copy. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
