Goon Today – funny fairy tale script

funny fairy tale script

GOON TODAY – FUNNY FAIRY TALE SCRIPT

Fu (Spelled F. U. ) was sentenced to life as a goon for slapping a mouse. It’s hardly a fair sentence for slapping one mouse. A Mouse! Really? It’s also not important whether the mouse had it coming or not. (He did) Life as a goon, as a result of this brief “lapse” in judgement, is an absolute nightmare. In this comedy in one act, Fu won’t stop (and hasn’t stopped) complaining until he’s heard in this funny fairy tale script.

Luckily, his whining doesn’t fall on deaf ears this umpteenth time. The Good Fairy will pardon Fu if he asks every single goon living in the forest to leave. The goons will likely do so. It’s a deal so sweet he can hardly believe it as he sets out towards his freedom. Fu will be a bunny again. As for the Good Fairy, he will rest easy because all politicians sleep well at night… Corrupt to the core, the Good Fairy is using the forest goons to his own benefit. This leaves Fu to fight for more than just his own freedom and become the hero he was born to be.

Life as a goon is only the beginning. A fairy tale with adult type humour suitable for older teens. In the style of ”Shrek. ”

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.

PARALLELODRAM TWO – FIFTEEN MINUTE DRAMA SCRIPT

The Smiths are off to celebrate Mrs Smith’s birthday by seeing a play tonight. Incidentally their (physically) really close neighbours, the Smithsons, are celebrating John’s birthday with a trip to a show as well. The two families mirror each other through an imaginary wall centre stage. They’re both going to watch the same play, and in the beginning all the action on both sides of the stage is synchronized in this fifteen minute drama script.

Both families discuss the events of the night ahead. Simply put, the Smiths know what to expect and the Smithsons don’t. When both twelve year old boys show a reluctance to go to watch the play, the play takes an abrupt turn and the two families diverge. This short drama explores how two similar yet different families engage with each other as the question of nature and nurture is brought into the mix.

Author: Nicholas Richards

Type: One act play

Length: Fifteen minute drama script

Genre: Drama

Cast: 4M, 2F

Ages of the actors: Four adult parents, two twelve year old boys

On the ‘dividing wall’ there are to be imagined mirrors. There could also be umbrella-stands or hat-stands. The actors enter from Upstage as if coming down from upstairs.

Level of difficulty: 8/10 – getting the mirror imaging needed so that the two families synchronize. Will need practice.

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.

A SMART ALEC AND TWO IDIOTS WALK INTO A CLOSET – COMEDY SCRIPT FOR STUDENTS

In A Smart-Alec and Two Idiots Walk into a Closet, a comedy, Connie, Lewis and Shawn find themselves locked in the school janitor’s closet and it ain’t The Chronicles of Narnia, man. Before Connie and Lewis freak out anymore, Shawn takes matters into his own hands and sprays them with some bleach, to get them to ‘’cool down’’. In one act, things go from bad to mildly worse when Lewis faints (or pretends to?) after he finds out what he was sprayed with. Connie tries to save him, a kiss doesn’t happen, they all almost die, hope is lost then found again and as they keep waiting for someone to unlock the door, they realise that freedom isn’t really free at all.

In a closet, the possibilities are endless….

American one act play

SINDICATION – AMERICAN ONE ACT PLAY THAT BREAKS THE FOURTH WALL

 

This experimental, short comic drama is a thought-provoking, Ionescu-like political play that mars the line between Man and Media. The fourth wall becomes especially dynamic in this amusing drama, in its role as a television screen, flashing across the eager, dumbed-down faces of a seemingly typical American family waiting for dinner, on a Sunday, after church in a small town we’re all somehow familiar with. Here they sit, this seemingly typical American family, each making wild accusations about the audience—who unwittingly takes on the role of the Media in all its forms—as this family tries, like they do every Sunday, to talk to each other by talking about everything else in this American one act play that breaks the fourth wall.

Sindication was an Official Finalist at the 2018 Manhattan Downtown Urban Arts Festival.

Author: T.K. Lee

Type: One act play

Genre: Drama, poignant comedy, satire depending on how it is played

Cast: 2M 2F and four voices 2F 1N

Ages of the actors: The four mains are middle aged and old and the voiced vary from a young girl’s to an adult reporter and an old woman

Suitable for: Older teens up to watch and perform. This play is an ideal play for drama students as it explores the concept of the Fourth Wall. 

Length: Fifteen to Twenty minutes

Set: A den with couch, recliner, and rocking chair. Dressed as any typical, southern, middle-class household might appear. Though we do not see an actual TV, the lighting should have the effect of a flashing TV screen of any nondescript channels across their faces.

Level of difficulty: 8/10 – showing the detachment of the characters to the sometimes awful events they describe which mirror everyday life.

Blind Date – ten minute comedy for two actors

BLIND DATE – ONE ACT COMEDY FOR TWO ACTORS

In one hysterical act, a man and woman each get ready for a date with one another, while contemplating the night ahead. Both divorced, Stanley Kramer (a doctor) and Alice Adler (who works in medical research) have been set up on a blind date by their friends and it’s hardly a boring evening of preparation. We get the perspective of each suitor as they ready themselves for a night of ‘putting on’. ‘Putting on’ the charm and ‘putting on’ the confidence. Basically: Putting on a show. In “Blind Date” it’s all about the potential that comes with meeting someone new and how stressful that really is in this one act comedy for two actors.

If dying alone is the other alternative may the blind dates keep on coming!

Author: Tanis Galik

Genre: Comedy

Type: One act comedy for two actors

Cast: 1M 1F

Ages of the actors: Not stipulated. Both are divorced, so one assumes thirties up.

Suitable for: Teens up to perform and all ages to watch

Length: Twenty minutes

Set: The stage is divided into two bedrooms—-one feminine, one masculine. The rooms are separated by an imaginary wall which includes a full-length mirror (empty of glass) that both characters use simultaneously. The lady’s boudoir has a dressing table with a large mirror (empty of glass) that has its back to the audience so they can watch the woman while she primps. There is a smaller, freestanding make-up mirror on the tabletop. The man’s room contains a dresser and a sink with similar mirrors. Both rooms, with articles of clothing tossed about and unmade beds, look like a flurry of activity has just occurred.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 both characters have to appear to be alone but bounce lines off the other at the same time.
