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!

SNOW IN JULY – COLLECTION OF ONE ACT PLAYS

A collection of one act plays by American playwright James Campbell. From the comedic absurd to the dark and sinister, these plays are both thought provoking and enjoyable to stage.

Hossback: This satirical off the wall comedy rips off typical cowboys from the old west, or at least modern society’s idea of what cowboys actually were like by taking an over the top view of them. From the way they loved their hosses like real women, to their predilection for hanging ‘criminals’ of an description to their manner of speaking – all those cowboy traits we are so fond of are chewed up and spat out again.

Murder in the asylum: The patients and the staff in the local lunatic asylum are getting murdered one by one until there’s only two men standing. One of them’s the murderer…. But, since they’re mad as hatters, they both think it isn’t them.

Sunset on the Potomac: Under absurdia, but poignant comedy about a music teacher and her family, her loves, life and children at the end of which a dark twist is finally revealed.

Baboons: It’s the time of the Romans and those annoying Christians (sorry Baboons) keep getting in the way! Should they kill them like wild boars and baboons? Or do they put on a play?

First to see the lights go on: A drama about post natal depression and its consequences. When Frank meets Arlene at the bus stop and they strike up a conversation, Arlene seems both child like and innocent. But her innocence hides a deathly secret.

Jumping the league: A comedy for a small cast. A priest (who has a foul mouth) and his best friend in 1960’s Pre Vietnam have both decided, and chosen this day to tell each other that they are literally both ‘jumping the league’ and leaving their old lives behind forever.

The Restaurants are Screaming: In this period drama set at the end of the second world war, Ludwig has been living with his daughter, Marcia and his son in law, Joe for the past three months. The play focuses on an abusive father, who now he is old, struggles to understand the consequences of his actions as well as the effect he has on other people. The play draws parallels between his two adult children freeing themselves from their abusive father, the death of the old way of life and the rebirth of the new way of life as the allies win the war in 1945.

Style: A drama about a rough group of factory workers on the line and the day they get the news their factory is closing and their work is gone. It’s all they’ve ever known.

The Watch Below: A group of sailors on a boat in the war are isolated due to an outbreak of deadly meningitis. It’s a tension filled situation as the sick man is at first missing then aggressive and no one can get away.

British comedy

THE RETIREMENT OF THE WITCHES OF IPSWICH – BRITISH COMEDY PLAYS

Molly, Agnes and Moira have put their wands away as per the conditions of their retirement. They must abide by the rules set out by the Elder Wood Retirement Home for Witches, Wizards, Warlocks and Window Cleaners and duly enforced by the staff including the hard-headed Matron. Tricksters by nature, the ‘rules’ have hardly stopped the trio from engaging in some light fun at the expense of the other inhabitants of the Home – especially Bill (a retired window cleaner) – or the naïve staff in this British comedy.

In their old age, they see no reason to hang up their broomsticks and stop enjoying the adventurous side of life and soon enough they find themselves in a haunted and old theatre, looking for mischief. They encounter some less-than-scary ghosts who decide to get in on the fun of having the witches’ toy with the residents of Elder Wood… It really is all fun and games until the truth about window cleaners retiring in the same residences as witches, comes to light.

If the cauldron bubbles, it usually spells some trouble.

TWO COUSINS AND A PIZZA – TEN MINUTE AMERICAN PLAY

In ”Two Cousins and a Pizza” Mikey’s in town from Chicago and for Johnny, it’s just like old times. There’s nothin’ like grabbing a good, old fashioned New York City pizza and for the cousins, there’s no question that Chi-town don’t cut it in this regard. New York City pizzas are in a league of their own and that’s a fact that even a non-native would understand well. From the texture of the dough (thanks to the city’s water) to the 45cm diameter slice; it’s authentic, it’s simple and it’s New York, baby!

So when Johnny’s cousin starts tucking into his slice with knife and fork in hand, it’s not a problem, it’s a catastrophe! How dare he? In this ten minute American play, Johnny attempts to rehabilitate Mikey so that he can snap out of it and use his God-given hands to enjoy a meal meant to be relished the only way it can (according to Johnny).

If you take the boy outta New York, well maybe then…. he shouldn’t come back.

JULEO AND ROMIET – SKIT ON ROMEO AND JULIET

Short skit on Romeo and Juliet in which the ill fated couple from the town of Blurona meet and get secretly married. All the boring bits are cut out from the ever so long play (yawn) to focus on the final scene….the DEATH SCENE. It’s the Friar’s fault really. Having persuaded Romiet to drink his potion to fake her death, he finds that Juleo is missing (oh no!) and so he sets off in search of him to let him know it is only a trick, only to leave Juleo to find the “dead” Romiet, and stab himself in the heart thinking she is dead. So far so good. However Romiet wakes up, sees the plot has gone horribly wrong and decides to consult the original Shakespearean version to find out what happened, only to die of boredom!

COMEDY DRAMA ABOUT FAMILY

THE BEACH HOUSE – A COMEDY DRAMA ABOUT FAMILY

It’s meant to be a celebration of family and in particular, granddad Arthur’s birthday. Sure, Arthur and Ellen have been divorced a long time and he barely gets along with Abigail, his granddaughter, but at least Belinda is trying when it comes to her parents and children in this comedy drama about family.

It’s unfortunate really that Abigail and Jarvis, his grandson show their true and disingenuous reasons for attending the beach house celebration, in a situation that is unraveling almost as soon as they get to their home away from home. With a no-show father (Belinda’s husband who cares as much for the title as he does for Abigail) it seems Belinda is well and truly on her own as she tries desperately to keep a family as unified as ever. In this drama/comedy in one act, the odds are not so much in Belinda’s favour as a secret as old as Abigail threatens to tear the family completely apart…

British farce

A QUEEN AND THREE SLAVES – BRITISH FARCE ABOUT CLEO, JULIE AND THREE VERY ‘ESSEX’ SLAVES

The time: The Roman Empire at its height. Caesar has invaded ancient Britain and has attempted to extend the glorious Roman Empire, introducing all things great: Roman culture, architecture and best of all, plumbing. It’s a pity the locals don’t want these things, preferring to live in hideously free squalor instead in this British farce.

Despite his slightly (okay, extremely) unsuccessful conquest of Britain, Caesar has taken slaves from the local population and brought them back with him to Rome. As a gesture he gives them to Cleoptra, who is currently living in one of his villas in Rome. Now, just which slaves has he chosen to be slaves to the greatest Queen history has ever known? Only the best Essex has to offer!

A Queen and Three Slaves” played successfully for four weeks at the little theater in the Actors lab in San Francisco.

Author: Richard Goodman

Type: Two-act play

Genre: British farce in the style of the ”Carry On” films

Cast:  5F, 3M

Ages of the actors: Adult

Suitable for: All ages to watch, teens up to perform

Length: 90 minutes

Set: A large chamber in a Roman villa on the right bank of the Tiber in the year 44 BC. There are several chairs and a large couch in the centre of the room. Against the back wall a door leads to a small room which is a closet for some of CLEOPATRA’S clothing and wigs. A door on the left leads off to the entrance hall and other rooms in the village. A door on the right leads to CLEOPATRA’S other private chambers.
