This is a full length play written in six acts which is inspired by Oscar Wilde’s original story The Happy Prince. You will find characters that belong to other stories like The Importance of Being Earnest and The Nightingale and the Rose perfectly intertwined and presented in a very interesting and clear way. However the main plot is that of the Happy Prince story.
It was written to fit two groups of 6th graders and we worked with the other stories for them to get familiar with the characters.
Cast size: 70 (including extras like more swallows, reeds, poor children, angels, etc)
Running time: approximately 1.30 hr
Included in this 40 page download: full script, characters list and acts with links, and there are also some links to youtube videos and songs for choreography ideas.
This play has been tested and produced with great success. Children, parents and teachers absolutely loved the final outcome. The main characters delivered such beautiful and moving performances. I truly hope your production is as successful as was ours.
