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 play for drama 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!

WOTCHA! GOTCHA! STEAM PUNK FUNNY PANTOMIME

In this zany but extremely funny steam punk pantomime script, loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, Alice Liddell is kidnapped by the villains Mad Hat and Moriarty and taken through the looking glass to an alternate universe and imprisoned in their Dirigible because they want to take over her world and they have a cunning plan to get their way.

Her friends Dodgson and Prince Leopold enlist the help of the slightly less famous Shamrock Holmes and his sidekick, James Watson to get her back to their side of the looking glass. Together with the Dame and the Baker Street Irregulars, they set out to rescue her and save their world from imminent disaster.

They win, of course!
