THE DRAGONS OF SPRING – A TWO-ACT COMEDY SCRIPT FOR TEENAGERS
In this two-act comedy script for teenagers, King Bob is informed by the ‘Queen for a day,’ his wife, that it is high time that their daughter, Clementine was married, being at the ripe of age of fifteen. Clementine, however is, desperately in love with Claudius, the castle plumber. In an effort to ensure that she marries someone of noble blood, the King and Queen issue a Royal Decree stating that anyone who kills the local dragon will win 5000 pounds. (And in small print,”Marry the Princess Clementine.”)
When the Princess Clementine hears about this, she is determined that her true love, Claudius, the plumber shall be the one to slay the dragon and so she drags the unwilling Claudius and her maidservant to the forest to slay the dragon. However, her younger sister is determined that Clementine shall be married, to whoever, so that she can get her Clementine’s bedroom. So she drags her maidservant off to the forest to slay the dragon, and to pin it on one of the local elderly knights sent by the King to perform this errand.
