TO BE A TREE – PLAY FOR CHILDREN ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

In this one act play for children about the environment, author Matthew Konkel explores the fascinating realm that is a kid’s imagination. You see, Abby Greene is quite sure of herself. It is something common in fifth graders – and all children under twelve years of age: that unfailing confidence in themselves.

It’s easy to think others will think the same way you do. Abby learns that this isn’t always the case when she not only decides to be a tree when she grows up but also informs the world around her of this decision. She is of course mocked by her peers.  Through her adversity and resolve, Abby and her peers come to acknowledge the importance of both technology and the natural environment.

Abby knows why she wants to be a tree and when you learn her reasons you may just want to join her too. To Be a Tree is a one-act play meant to be performed by children, for children.

At what point did you put the childish things away for good? But more importantly, why?

HOW WE SAVED OUR HOMEROOM TEACHER – PLAY FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN

When the second grade class arrive at school, they find that their teacher, Mrs Harper has vanished. Finding a nasty note on the desk, they realise that she has not only vanished but has been kidnapped! But they have a chance. If they can solve seven puzzles set to them, they may get her back. But they must hurry, before it’s too late.
Will they get their beloved Homeroom teacher back or will the evil Wizard (who incidentally lives next door to the school janitor’s office) win and keep her a prisoner forever in this play for younger children?

The nature of the play is not only to teach children rhyming poetry, but it also features seven puzzles, which are being solved logically by a team of classmates, teaching teamwork manners and thinking logically. It also teaches children to respect their homeroom teachers, as they are the ones teaching them not only all of the main subjects, but also how to work in teams, how to respect each other and how to think logically and not give up, when solving difficult problems.

How we saved our homeroom teacher is a play for younger children in rhyming poetry, aimed at second graders, but if the children playing it speak English as a second language, the play is easily adaptable for third or fourth grade children, according to the judgement of the teacher directing it.

SNOW GOOD – SNOW WHITE THE PANTOMIME

Snow Good a.k.a. Snow White The Pantomime carries a warning –  It is considered dangerous for wearers of spectacles  to attend as it’s so funny it will cause their spectacles to mist up from laughing so hard.  Spectacle cleaning cloths and extra tissues should, therefore, should be carried at every performance. Do not drive or use machinery until the spectacles have been demisted.

An hysterically funny retelling of the Snow White and the seven dwarfs fairy tale as rendered by the Goons, kicked around by Monty Python and crash landed by the Airplane I and II writers and built on this foundation a really twisted tale of jealousy, passion, sausages, stupidity and innocence brilliantly scripted by Keith Passmore.
Grandparents will role in the aisles, parents will go “ooo!” at the verbal and visual puns (of which there are many) and children will be enthralled and everyone will cheer at the end when Good, (“ooo!”) triumphs and the evil Queen is vanquished and later strangled by the Director for changing her lines, (off stage, of course.)

URSULA – FAIRYTALE PLAY ABOUT A PRINCESS WHO BECOMES A BEAR

Ursula is seventeen and is a prisoner, trapped inside her own castle by her father, the King. Although he does it because he wishes to protect her, Ursula wants to see the sun and explore the world, no matter how dangerous it might be. Her nurse, who is also a witch, by the way, gives her a magic cloak that, when she wears it, transports her out of the castle. But it also transforms her into a big brown bear. She almost gets shot by a Handsome prince hunting in the forest, but luckily she she can still talk, she astonishes him with her powers of speech and he takes her home to become a servant in his house. There, disguised as a bear, she gets to know him and also falls in love with him. When there is a ball, she removes her bear cloak and dances with him as a beautiful stranger.

But little does he know that his own bear and the beauty are one and the same…

‘Ursula’ is a great fairytale play for children, with a princess that’s both outlandish and a breath of fresh air. It’s a Cinderella story with flair!

There is one song in the script – music is provided by the author.

BROOKLANDS BLOOMING CATS – SCRIPT FOR CHILDREN’S MUSICAL

It is better to have purred in the right direction, than never to have purred at all.

Cats!! From the purr, to the meow and the love of milk, the slit like pupils see, the triangular nose smells and the keen ears hear… that something is not right. The vibrant cats of Brookland’s School sense that all is unwell when their caretaker Mr. Morgan fails to show up to school with food for the day. Starving from hunger, annoyed at his betrayal of their stomachs and worried at the cause of his delay, when (whom they assume to be) Mr. Morgan finally does show up they rush to eat, none the wiser about a meal that will imprison them and have their claws harvested for gold by the stature-challenged and metal-obsessed, W’Evil. In this script for children’s musical, it is up to the cats to rescue themselves, rescue Mr. Morgan and save W’Evil from himself (probably) too. All in a cat’s 24 hours considering they sleep twelve to sixteen hours a day…

FORGOTTEN – TWO ACT FANTASY PLAY FOR HIGH SCHOOL – what happened after Neverland?

Gwendolyn is a young schoolgirl plagued by recurring dreams of an imaginary place and time, not of this earth. Despite her best efforts to control her dreams, they are becoming more real and frequent than ever. But when she wakes up, she cannot remember anything at all, other than a fear of falling. When she sleepwalks and almost falls to her death, her school decide to send her home again. Once home she is sent to a specialist doctor for treatment to try to cure of of her mysterious illness that is causing her nightmares.

fantasy play for high school

But it seems that the imaginary place is very real indeed. Gwendolyn is “Wendy” and she dreams of a very real Neverland. Peter Pan has left Neverland to try and find her, risking the lives of all the people who live there, including the infamous Captain Hook. For Neverland cannot survive without Peter Pan. Hook, desperate to save Neverland, and of course himself, has followed Peter back to our world to find Wendy and to make her forget once and for all.

“Forgotten” is an exploration of J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s story, “Peter Pan” and poses the question of whether it was simply a story, a figment of Wendy’s imagination or a real place. In the 21st century we are accustomed to the concepts of time travel and alternate universes. This fantasy play for high school cleverly switches between, so to speak, the alternate Earths in the story.

A fun play that mixes pirates and adventure with 1906 England. I thoroughly recommend it! Altaire Gural, the playwright is a member of the playwright’s guild of Canada.
