Teeth and Eating Class Play
Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down. Duration - around 20 minutes including music choices.
Once again, our narrator has his/her work cut out, vying with a dentist, a 'super athlete', a 'Sweet Gang' and of course .... a whole crowd of chattering teeth!
This is the first of a set of ‘body plays’ written by Sue Russell – the others are ‘in the pipeline’ and will be available soon – check out www.plays-r-ussell.com for updates on these scripts, including one on general body maintenance/good health.
Narrator: Good morning and welcome to our assembly on
(Sound of dentist’s drill)
(Narrator walks over to dentist, standing over patient, with drill in hand)
Narrator: (Shouting) Er, excuse me!
(Drilling stops and dentist looks round towards narrator)
Dentist: (Angrily) Yes! Did you want something? Surely you can see I’m rather busy here!
Narrator: (Huffily) I’m sure you are! But so am I! I happen to be trying to hold an assembly this morning and, well, I just can’t do that with you drilling!
Patient: (Leaping off chair) Oh that’s fine! I can always come back another day!
(Dentist places patient firmly back in the chair)
Dentist: Oh no you don’t! You are not going anywhere – not until I have finished!
(To narrator) Now, if you don’t mind
(Dentist picks up drill and moves towards patient)
Narrator: No! Stop!
Narrator: I can give you a very good reason why you should stop what you are doing. Well, for a short time, anyway.
Dentist: Oh yes? Well, come on, then. This had better be good.
Narrator: Well, wouldn’t you agree that prevention is better than cure?
Dentist: You mean, looking after your teeth rather than me fixing them?
Narrator: Correct! And our job here this morning is to educate everyone about just that!
Dentist: Ah! Now you’re talking!
(To Patient) You might want to listen to this. It could save you future trips to my surgery!
