ANOTHER ANANSI – CHILDREN’S PLAY SCRIPT BASED ON A TRADITIONAL FOLK TALE

Anansi is a naughty spider. He’s also quite lazy and a trickster, preferring to trick the other animals out of their hard earned food than do the work to find his own food himself in this children’s play script.

He thinks he’s quite clever when, in the same day, he cons goat, lion, warthog and bear out of their food and settles down for a nice meal. But unbeknownst to him, the four of them have figured out what he did and together with turkey, (the brains of the outfit) they set out to con him right back!

Anansi is a traditional character that appears in both West African and Jamaican folk tales. Another Anansi and Other Animal Tales was written for a summer theater group of young actors to have fun with.

THE WELL KEEPERS – PLAY FOR OLDER CHILDREN

The king of Colchester, after the death of his wife, has married the hideous widow, Edwina, for her riches. The new queen, mother to the ugly Luella and jealous of her step-daughter, Amaryllis’s beauty, does her best to set the king against his own child in this play for older children. Heartbroken, Amaryllis leaves the palace to seek her fortune; when during the journey she shares her scanty food with an old man and is kind to the dwarfs living in the well, she is rewarded by marrying a rich and powerful king.

Luella, too, wants to imitate her step-sister, but proves to be selfish and stingy; punished by the dwarfs, she ends up marrying a poor cobbler.

After learning about her daughter’s husband, Edwina leaves the palace; in the meantime the king had found out about her lies and greets Amaryllis with all the honours due to a queen.

The Well Keepers is an adaptation of the English Fairytale, “The Three Heads Of The Well”

Aladdin the pantomime

ALADDIN THE PANTOMIME

In Aladdin the pantomime, Abanazer, the wicked one seeks an infamous lamp hidden in a land far far away. Rumour has it that the lamp contains a powerful Genie who can help him rule the world. But he has no idea how to find it. Undeterred, he rings up the Slave of the Ring Hotline for help. The bimbo on the helpdesk checks her computer and informs him that yes, such a cave exists and no, he cannot enter it himself. There is only one in the whole world who can do it. His name? Aladdin. Location? Peking, China. China? That’s a bit far!

So Abanazer sets out on a journey. Aladdin, on the other side of the world is currently running for his life because he set eyes on the beautiful princess. Naturally this means he must die. But since he has no immediate plans to do this, running away seems to be the best option. Other than marrying the Princess of course. But that sort of thing doesn’t happen to young men whose mother, the Widow Twankey (currently unattached, available and let’s face it, slightly manly) owns the local laundromat. Nope. He’d have to come into a large fortune to do that.

Which is exactly what Abanazer promises him to get him to go to the cave. However, once they’re in the cave it all goes wrong. Aladdin finds the treasure and wants to send that up first, but wicked Abanazer only wants the lamp and seals Aladdin inside the cave in a rage. Leaving him with the lamp and a massive amount of treasure. The rest? Well, why don’t you have a little read and find out!

THE GIRL IN THE LAVENDER GLASSES – CHILDREN’S PLAY ABOUT BEING DIFFERENT

Like any other little girl, Marion wanted to go to school, play with her friends and be a kid. For ten months these little things that sometimes go unappreciated, became completely off-limits to Marion when she was hospitalised due to a rare eye condition. Dr Williams had the child’s eyes bandaged completely for her time in the hospital and she had no existence beyond the doors of her hospital bed in this children’s play about being different.

One day, Marion’s parents and Marion herself were presented with a donation of night eye glasses to help her see in her everyday life. She would get back to her normal routine before the hospitalisation. Marion’s story then began again and ended where her new world took shape and in three acts, this drama shows that the ones amoungst us who are scorned for being different, are magic.

She was a friend, she was a daughter, she was a girl, and she was a hero.

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!

CHILDISH AUTHORS – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT THE CLASSROOM

You’re an author. You’ve written a book for children that you think they’ll love. So when the local school invites you to a book reading for nine year olds you jump at the chance. Poor you. You should never have done that. Apparently your book about modern moms with nannies and dads who drive SUV’s isn’t quite what you thought it was. The kids are quick to point out that there was no way that Holly would have paid for an ad to hire her own nanny and the fact that the mom posts pics of herself on the internet is obviously completely inappropriate for a children’s book in this one act comedy about the classroom.

Luckily their teacher has wised up after a year with these little brats and she knows just what to do to fix it. And it doesn’t involve raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

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?
