THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING MEATBALL – YOUNG CHILDREN’S PLAY SCRIPT
In this young children’s playscript, aimed at 6 or 7 year old children, a meatball goes missing from the pasta dish created by the Italian chef, Dominico. His sharp eyed wife, Domenica notices the mistake. Domenico counts the meatballs over and over and, although he made 16, there are only fifteen meatballs remaining in the pasta. So begins the hunt for the meatball, as he calls his wife, then all of his children until the guilty culprit (who borrowed it) is found.
A cute short play for younger kids in reception (grade R) and year or grade one to three.
