A Snitch in Time – Time travelling script for teens and community theatre

TIME TRAVELLING SCRIPT FOR TEENS

A SNITCH IN TIME – TIME TRAVELLING SCRIPT FOR TEENS

“My name is May. I was born not far from here. It wasn’t that long ago. Maybe you’ve seen me around? But then again, you probably haven’t. Why? Well, officially, I don’t exist. You could call me invisible, in a way.  For want of a better word. And ironically, you’d be right.”

When May accidentally discovers she can see hidden time travellers, and rescues Anne Frank who has been brought to our time, she is immediately recruited to “The Agency” – the top secret government agency that controls time travel. Her mission: To go back in time and  alter events or retrieve famous people who otherwise would have died. From JFK to Anne Boleyn, to Nazi Germany – it all turns out well. Until it doesn’t. When May and her partner, Roger return with Anne Boleyn, the world has changed. A leak in time has occurred – one that forever alters the fabric of reality. The Nazi’s won.

They’re the only ones that know the truth. And they’re the only ones who can do anything about it in this script for teens.  A great class or play for youth theatre.

Author: Claire Linda Demmer

Genre: Comedy, adventure, script for teens

Type: Two-act play

Cast: Total thirty actors. Speaking roles: 13-14M, 8-9F.  Certain roles are less gender specific, for example, Nazi’s could be either male or female. 

Ages of the actors: Teen up

Suitable for: All ages to watch and perform

Length: Two hours

Set: The stage is divided into three areas – the main stage, a platform to the front of the stage and another platform to the right or left of it. The main area and the platform downstage have scene changes whereas the platform to the side is always the main office of headquarters with a number of desks behind which sit the workers typing away and answering phones. A map of the world is on the wall behind the office. The Nazi flag is hung there as well during the second act. Scene changes in the other two areas remain simple and occur during other scenes to allow the play to flow. The ‘time field’ can be created using lighting and sound effects, or even basic LED lights switched on and off.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 – Effects, scenery and costumes. As they travel all through time, the main actors do have some costume and scene changes but these are also really fun for the players as well!

SPACE SHENANIGANS – CHILDREN’S COMEDY PLAY SCRIPT

There are two things one must embody to survive in space: an allergy to philosophical nearsightedness and a finely tuned survival instinct. The crew on the space ship in Space Shenanigans, a one act children’s play, have these attributes and then some. After taking unexpected fire from another ship, the Captain has suspicions of insubordination from his crew and the stench of a rat is not too far away. It’s good old fashioned mutiny on the mother ship!  Pity that the rat can’t smell itself in this children’s comedy play script.

Anything goes, out there!

THE PENDRAGON SACRIFICE – AWARD WINNING PLAY ABOUT MERLIN AND KING ARTHUR

So it is in the reimagining of the adventures of Merlin and his motley crew, that an evil too ghastly to imagine rears its head and must be done away with.   In this one act drama, Arthur of Legend, his brother Marcus, Gwenivere and a band that only Merlin could come up with have one task: to defeat the darkness before it has its chance of setting in in this award winning play about Merlin and King Arthur.

The evil that descends into the hearts of men is both from and becomes the world. Merlin has witnessed it and can never forget it; it would be unwise for him to even try to.

TUMBLEWEED – COMEDY PLAY SET IN THE WILD WEST

Tumbleweed tells the story of love, family, betrayal and murder in North West America. There’s a new sheriff in town and he may just be what the town of Bannack, Montana needs and desperately so. The outlaws, namely ‘The Innocents’ have one motive: gold. The gold is to be found, according to the ‘prophetic’ Chief Raging Bear, whose daughter has been kidnapped by ‘The Innocents’, on a creek and the outlaws will stop at nothing to get that land in this play set in the wild west.

When the previous sheriff is murdered amongst other townspeople by ‘The Innocents’, Calvin saves the life of the previous sheriff’s daughter, Jessie, in the nick of time. He is consequently shoved into the position of sheriff and begins work, together with the help of the Bannack’s best (and sometimes worst) on bringing ‘The Innocents’ to justice.

NO ORDINARY MAN – SERIAL KILLER PLAY OR SCREENPLAY

The seconds drag, the minutes are lengthened, the hours stretch into day 1, day 2, day 3… as Billard tries to crack a suspect’s psyche in this serial killer play or screenplay. He goes by the name “Martin,” the suspect that’s up for the murder of multiple women. As the evidence mounts and points conspicuously to Martin, Billard works with and against the clock to get a confession out of the seemingly disturbed prisoner.

‘Disturbed, psychotic, misunderstood or fearless.’ These are words – words that Martin uses to describe himself, and words Billard uses to describe Martin… Once Martin is ‘shockingly’ linked to the systematic, mental and physical abuse of his own daughter, it is just a matter of time before Billard corners him with a plea bargain that will give the victims’ families the peace of mind (if any is possible) that they deserve. To catch a killer is to hold the banner of justice squarely on ones shoulders and Billard may yet succeed in that respect. In the process he may become a victim of Martin too. You win/you die.

REGICIDE – FANTASY PLAY SCRIPT ABOUT REVOLUTION. AND MURDER

There are those who hate the King and Queen. They have their reasons. Mainly, the violence, bloodshed, murder and oppression they have lived with under the monarchs rule. ‘’Those’’ like Zanna and Lucien, belong to a brotherhood that seeks to destroy the King and Queen once and for all. In Regicide, a play in three acts, their lives revolve around their resolve to bring power back to the people, their respect for the authorities who will carry out the order for the final blow and the sweet revolution of retribution that will follow the simple task that must be done quickly and quietly – kill the King and Queen’s new born son in this fantasy play script.

The logic, according to Zanna and Lucien’s Commander (Jacob) is that without an heir, the wretched kingdom will surely collapse and so Lucien and Zanna must ensure that the threat is completely annihilated. ‘’The Threat’’, merely a day or two old, who has done nothing but exist thus far, who understands nothing’ and is as harmless as can be, must be killed and it is Lucien who has volunteered to do it. But can he? … Could you?

SAVING PERSEPHONE – MODERN GREEK STYLE COMEDY

When you’re the God of the Underworld, you certainly have to live up to expectations and Hades is not one to let reputations slide. The plan: reinvigorate his status, the pawn: his wife, Persephone, the execution style: well… the execution of life itself. Knowing that the earth cannot thrive with Persephone otherwise ‘engaged’ Hades’ plan is the seemingly perfect way to garner the respect he seems to have misplaced-err or rather lost along the way.

For in this two act comedy we see how easy it is for a god to be forgotten and well Hades cannot tolerate that now can he? And if it takes a village of Alseids, Dryads, Hesperides, Nereids, Oreads, Pleiades, hell – even Zeus himself, to save the day then so be it. Hades will be waiting, in the Underworld, of course.

If you alter your perspective, holding the goddess of vegetation hostage is just a bit of fun!

THE WAY OUT – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT ESCAPING FROM THE LOONY BIN

It could not get any worse. Not only was Steve committed to a sanatorium against his will and (cough) better judgement, he’d lost custody of his only daughter and his conniving wife Genia was
dead set on taking his fortune for herself. It seemed the odds were truly against him as the judge who had him committed (and re-committed) was less reasonable than most, the doctors and
therapists at the coo-coo place seemed hard of hearing and his own sanity was living on a prayer. It was clear to Steve; he would almost certainly rot in Westview Residence unless he did something…
and soon… and drastic! His only option: to put his faith in his fellow ‘prisoners’, create a flawless escape plan and hope the sun shone brightly on the ‘crazy ones’ at Westview.

And Steve’s worst nightmare became his wildest dream in this comedy about escaping from the loony bin!

WHERE’S MR M? TWO ACT SCIENCE FICTION PLAYSCRIPT

science fiction playscript

Is it a conspiracy? Or just a product of an overactive imagination? In the United States, a secret corporation exists whose sole aim is to to foster the United State’s utter dependence on fossil fuels.

They’re greedy, corrupt and have absolute power. To do whatever they want. They control the government. And they’re building vast underground concentration camps connected by a railway network in which to incarcerate all opponents. Or are they? Workers on the project who become suspicious or even curious disappear without a trace as do many of their contacts outside the project. Other contacts are subjected to physical or mental psychological programming or are harassed by the police. But it can’t be true? Surely? What’s true and isn’t is hotly debated by the characters in the play. But don’t let your suspicions get too public. Or you might just …..

Greg Miller discovers their secret, one  that threatens the existence of the entire human race. But what he does not anticipate is how much of a pawn he has become in the mother of all mass mind control missions. It is up to Greg to save the world although he can barely save his marriage, and as time starts to slip through his fingers he must face the facts that time itself was his undoing long before he knew what he knows now…

Where’s Mr M is a two act science fiction playscript with creepy Orwellian overtones. It shows the possibility of there being something far more sinister than people think out there, governing everyone’s daily lives. The sub-plots contribute to the development of the play as the characters argue amongst themselves as to the validity of their suspicions and fall foul of the plotters. But, is it real or is it a nightmare? Even at the end one is never quite sure. The sub-plots will each strike a chord with different audience members thus generating a lot of robust discussion afterwards.

THE CONFEDERATION OF RADICALLY ALTERED PEOPLE – SUPERHERO PLAY SCRIPT

The Confederation of Radically Altered People takes place in Tyler City in the present day and age. Superheroes exist and the city is protected by the Alliance of Justice against super villains and normal criminals alike. But what would it be like to have a useless or inconsequential “super” ability in a world of real heroes? Dave, the protagonist, has the ability to feel into the minds of others and give them a sharp pain similar to an ice cream headache. After starting a support group for similar people Dave and his compatriots are thrust into the roles of unlikely saviors when a new powerful arch-villain abducts and imprisons the Alliance of Justice.

“Brain-Freeze,” as Dave is soon known by, saves the day along with his six teammates which includes a person who can rewind time in 15 second increments (“Rewind”), a woman who can channel super strength, but always at a cost (“Side Effect”), as well as others who use their own special abilities to triumph over evil.

The Confederation of Radically Altered People was produced at Laney High School for a three night run last spring and had a very successful production as well as being previewed at the All County Play festival held by New Hanover County.

RESILIENCE – FRENCH RESISTANCE SCREENPLAY SET IN WORLD WAR TWO GERMANY

When you’ve lost everything because of war, revenge is a dish best served in blood.

‘Blut und Ehre’ or Blood and Honour, are no doubt firmly intertwined in this war-time tale of a man’s
hunt for freedom, love and self-identity. When Sebastian Moreau, editor in chief of a newspaper in WWII occupied Paris, refuses a request made by his childhood friend Marcel, his simple enough
world unravels into nothing he ever imagined.

Jailed for a “propaganda crime” against the Reich, Sebastian makes use of his only invaluable weapon: the German language. Miraculously escaping bondage he becomes an ally in Germany to those who have helped him survive and seeks to turn the tables on the regime that has ruined Europe. In pursuit of his mission to survive, above all else, he cannot help but wonder of his sister’s fate, the future of his beloved France, incidentally his future as a Frenchman and Marcel…who will surely pay the price for ripping a man’s world apart.
