Product Description
This script could be performed for educational or entertainment purposes, in part as supplement to a History, Drama or Language Arts lesson or in its entirety as a dinner theater or other entertaining fundraiser.

The play begins with a young lady with a bit of an attitude, Kennedy, falling asleep in history class. She is awaken by a ghost who tells her she doesn't appreciate the significance of what she's studying. He then takes her back through time to the Industrial Revolution, first to a rural farm then to a New England factory. The journey culminates with Kennedy and Ghost eavesdropping on George Washington's cabinet debating some of the hot topics of the day, before Washington delivers his Farewell Address.Kennedy returns home with a new understanding and appreciation for the history she's studying.

Light, funny and informative this script is highly customize-able for a wide range of casts. As written, the script calls for 23 characters but could easily be adjusted for as few as 5 actors/actresses or as many as 30+. It could fit male or female performers ranging from grades 5-12. It's total run time is about an hour depending on blocking and scenery changes.

My students were sensational in performing this script and continue to talk about it years later. Writing it and watching it come alive has been one of the highlights of my career.
