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!

Brooklands Blooming Cats – script for children’s musical

script for children's musical

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…

Alice in Football Land – plays for children

ALICE IN FOOTBALL LAND – PLAYS FOR CHILDREN

 children's plays

This fast paced retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland is updated to modern times and set in a football stadium, where the Riverdale Rabbits are facing their rivals, the Duncan Dormice.

Alice, cheerleader for the Riverdale Rabbits, falls from the top of the pyramid and finds herself lost in the stadium desperately seeking Tod (the star quarterback) her ‘true love’. Along the way she encounters a strange group of characters; a coach who can’t control his players, a band leader whose band plays animals as musical instrument, the water boy who only serves water at his tea party, the referees who can’t decide what penalty to call, and the Cheshire Brand Hot Dog vendor who gives her cryptic and confusing clues. As Alice finds what she searches for, she realizes that she was chasing after the wrong things the whole time.

Alice in Football was performed at the Parkside Playhouse, Vicksburg, MS, June 24-26, 2010. Read more about playwright Richard Van Den Akker. Other children’s plays by Richard.
