MOLLY AND THE MAGIC PHONE – MUSICAL FOR CHILDREN
This is a one act musical for children. Written with age eleven and under in mind – although it is suitable for children up to around fifteen years old. A serious story with touches of comedy – with scope for being directed in a number of different ways – the emphasis being on participation for the children and entertainment for a young or adult audience.
Author: James Chalmers
Genre: Musical for children
Type: One act musical
Cast: Minimum of 10 and up to 15 children
Ages of the actors: Age 11 and under but ages of up to 15 would work
Length: 25 – 30 minutes
Suitable for: Children and the whole family
Set: No set required although the play might benefit from being performed in front of some plain flats – possibly decorated lightly with graffiti. At the front of the stage on either side – are tables for the cards carrying the text messages. The Presenters pick up cards from one side – walk across the front of the stage holding the words up for the audience to read – then they place the cards on the other table. They wait there until the next text message is to be displayed – and they walk back across the other way with the appropriate cards. The words should be on both sides of the cards because the messages are cues for the actor playing the part of Molly.
Level of difficulty: 6/10 – a nice play suitable for a small drama class
