Product Description
The Clothes We Wear Class Play or Assembly including The Emperor's New Clothes
Key Stage I (Children aged 5 – 7 years old)
This class play or assembly has a look at our normal wardrobes - for summer and winter clothing plus a dip into the world of fashion. In the case of the latter, one rather important lesson delivered via the mini play within this script - on The Emperor's New Clothes - is ‘Beware personal vanity’ - it can get you into all sorts of trouble!
Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down (Class Teacher as Narrator)
Duration - from around 10 minutes (not including music suggestions and 'fashion show' - these could easily double the performance!
KS II Scripts (Children 7 – 11 years old) on Fashion/Emperor’s New Clothes also available (see below)
Sample Text:
Music 2 You’re so Vain – Carly Simon
(Enter Fashion Designer, strutting up and down, like a model on a catwalk)
Narrator: (Indignantly) Excuse me! But would you mind explaining who you are?
Fashion Designer: Certainly! I am here as a special guest today. You see, as a fashion designer I know everything about clothes!
Narrator: Oh really? (To audience) And rather less about good manners!
Fashion Designer: Well, I really didn’t think I’d need an invite! I thought you’d be delighted to see me!
(Narrator ushers Fashion Designer back to his/her seat)
Narrator: Well, of course. Here. Take a seat and then maybe we can catch up later!
(Consulting notes) Now. Where were we? Ah yes, let’s take a look at some of these clothes!
Music 3 Summer Holidays – Cliff Richards
(Enter Summer Clothes Children, 1 – 6)
Narrator: (To Summer 1 & 2)
Wow! I can see you’re all ready for the beach!
Summer 1: We certainly are! (Pointing to each article of clothing) I’m wearing a sundress, flip flops, and these glasses and hat to protect me against the sun!
Sample Text from 'mini play' - The Emperor's New Clothes:
(Two scoundrels set up their looms)
Narrator: And so, all they had to do was take the money! They didn’t have to sew a stitch!
Scoundrel 2: That’s right. Just tell that emperor what he wanted to hear
Narrator: That he looked gorgeous?
(Both scoundrels nod)
Scoundrel 1: And what did that make us?
Scoundrel 2: Rich!
Narrator: But what about making him the finest clothes in the land?
Scoundrel 2: No need for that. (Pauses) Watch and listen!
(Enter Emperor’s adviser)
Emperor’s Adviser: I’ve heard you two are the best tailors in town?
Scoundrel 1: Correct!
Scoundrel 2: The only ones who can’t see our wonderful clothes are
Scoundrel 1: Fools!
There are several other Key Stage II scripts available off www.plays-r-ussell.com on Fashion and The Emperor’s New Clothes. These include an assembly/class play – Fashion Assembly; plus guided reading and short play on The Emperor’s New Clothes.
