Product Description
This Reader's Theater is for 4 students. It is a twisted version of the Emperor's New Clothes. In the script, there is an emperor who is vain and selfish. Because he only cares about himself there is an emptiness inside of him he can’t fill so he goes looking for something to fill it. A plastic surgeon arrives and tells him the problem is his nose is not perfect and once it is he will be happy. He offers the emperor a painless procedure to fix it and the emperor accepts.

There is a short writing assignment afterwards for the students to respond to. You can also have your students compare and contrast the original with this one using a Venn Diagram. 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 photo copy easily. 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, if your students enjoy this script, look for more fairy tales and twisted tales at my site. I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
