Enchanted – plays for junior high

 

ENCHANTED – PLAYS FOR JUNIOR HIGH

In Enchanted, our favourite fairy tale princesses Cindi, Jasmine, Ariel, Ru, Belle and Snow are in desperate need of the right knight upon a mighty steed, to come to their aid in defeating the Wicked
Witch. Enter Ben (10) and Jesse (13) – two young boys. Not what you would call knights exactly, well, to be honest they are not knights at all but they are boy scouts, thank you very much and honourable even amongst real men. In this two act comedy, alliances are made, promises are broken, nasty minions are duped and good must conquer evil once again! Let’s just hope it happens before Jesse and Ben become the fairy tale itself. Plays for junior high.
