FLEXIBLE CASTING 8-30 Characters
--Good for upper elementary or lower school grades
--Good for middle school grades
Shakespeare Shorties playscripts are designed for the teacher with limited time or funds. These have been immensely successful for my 4th grade drama class performances, but they are also great for a fun, active reader's theatre or short introduction to a larger unit.
Shakespeare Shorties playscripts are each about 15 minutes in a performance. They include a fun mix of modern dialogue with real Shakespeare dialogue, and naturally hit on the famous quotes. The script is EDITABLE so you can update current issues or rearrange the casting assignments.
"The Tempest" reverts to a fun, wise-cracking spoof that kids will love for it's supernatural characters and human ending.
Best of all, kids love these plays!
