Aladdin The Pantomime – British panto script

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!

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.

Read other plays by playwright Claire Demmer – The Rat Trap – a comic farce involving a greedy family, a dying old man and a ‘priceless’ work of art!

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!

RONNIE THE FIRD – SCHOOL DRAMA SET IN 1960’S ENGLAND

Meet Ronnie Mills, a street wise Londoner, aged 16 years, whose parents were killed in a motor car accident. Ronnie is sent to Wetherley College, a prestigious public school in in the South of England by his wealthy grandfather. Ronnie develops a love for history and  The Plantagenet kings, particularly Richard III. The students pick up on Ronnie’s interest and nickname him ‘Ronnie the Fird’ (partly using his vernacular) in this school drama set in 1960’s England.

Unfortunately, Ronnie soon becomes the target of the school bully, Henry Henderson, the son of a wealthy army officer and a benefactor of the college. When Ronnie stands up to him, Henderson seeks revenge and Ronnie is involved in a series of confrontations with Henderson and his cohorts. The situation culminates in Ronnie’s friend Jamieson supposedly ‘falling’ from a balcony and  being admitted to hospital in a coma.

Unfortunately no evidence is found against the alleged bullies, who were cleverly disguised, and no evidence of an attack was found on Jamieson’s body. However, a knife discovered close to the place where Jamieson fell reveals its owner as a member of Henderson’s gang and Ronnie helps to solve the problem and expose the members of the gang.

JULEO AND ROMIET – SKIT ON ROMEO AND JULIET

Short skit on Romeo and Juliet in which the ill fated couple from the town of Blurona meet and get secretly married. All the boring bits are cut out from the ever so long play (yawn) to focus on the final scene….the DEATH SCENE. It’s the Friar’s fault really. Having persuaded Romiet to drink his potion to fake her death, he finds that Juleo is missing (oh no!) and so he sets off in search of him to let him know it is only a trick, only to leave Juleo to find the “dead” Romiet, and stab himself in the heart thinking she is dead. So far so good. However Romiet wakes up, sees the plot has gone horribly wrong and decides to consult the original Shakespearean version to find out what happened, only to die of boredom!

THE WILTING PRESS – TWENTY MINUTE PLAY ABOUT LIFE AND HELPING OTHERS

Imagine if you had a problem, one that you couldn’t find a solution to. You don’t want to ‘look for help’ at this stage, preferring to try to sort it out yourself. What if you then went for a walk in the park?  On a bench a Wanderer jovially sits with a tattered book in this twenty minute play. The book is a wilting flower press full of the wanderer’s memories.  You sit down. You talk about love, family, life, and what it means to have a conversation that matters.

Three strangers encounter the Wanderer. Burdened by their respective circumstances, each Stranger shares their time and woes with the Wanderer, hoping to move forward.  And so the Wanderer, armed with words and a wilting press, mends these disillusioned hearts with one phrase: “Care to share your troubles?”

The wanderer asks only for a flower for their press from each stranger in return.  Will we ever find out why the Wanderer helps these people? Perhaps not. But maybe that isn’t important.

SIR LYONEL AND THE LEGION OF UNLIKELY HEROES – FUNNY FANTASY SCRIPT

There’s nothing like serving a reigning queen a good dose of her own justice. Sir Lyonel the Just has seen the limits of Queen Agrivaine’s mercy (very limited) and has an unyielding desire to get back what is rightfully his. A knight can only do so much with his swordsmanship but by a stroke of good fortune Sir Lyonel happens upon a minstrel because well, everyone needs one. Sir Lyonel also stumbles upon the strongest man within quite a radius, one who if they shoot you, it will be your last breath, one with dominion over the winds, a lady with crazy fast feet and a woman who puts the cold in ‘’ice cold’’. They all join forces with the knight to get rich from the Queen’s treasury and bruise her ego too. It’s not an easy feat, for the Queen is cunning but at least there is quite a bit of fun to be had with the Princess’s betrothal on the cards in this funny fantasy script.

It’s a league distinct from any other.

DRAMA FOR TEENS ABOUT A CAR ACCIDENT

THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD – DRAMA FOR TEENS ABOUT A CAR ACCIDENT

Imagine that, in a moment of thoughtlessness your life would change for ever, and would even be over.
It’s the holidays and three teens, Danny, Ben and Rachael are going to spend the holidays at the cottage owned by Danny’s father. Danny, egged on by Ben, has driven there in his father’s car without his father’s consent. Danny also hasn’t got a driving licence or insurance in this drama for teens about a car accident.

Just a matter of a few minutes from their destination, Danny takes a bend on the wrong side of the road, resulting in another car swerving out the way to avoid them and crashing, with fatalities highly likely. In a moment of panic, Danny doesn’t stop at the scene of the accident.

When Rachael arrives at the holiday cottage on her motorbike a little later she brings news. The car they hit had one survivor, a policeman. She then produces a gun she took from the scene of the crime. What she suggests next is unthinkable.

The wrong side of the road was was one of nine scripts short-listed in the 2009 Kenneth Branagh Drama Writing Award competition.

THE VAMPIRE DRUDGERIES – TEEN COMEDY PLAY ABOUT A REBELLIOUS VEGETARIAN VAMPIRE

In this teen comedy play, Anton, the “son” of Count Dracula and his bride, is celebrating his birthday. Of sorts…

It’s not quite a birthday. It is, essentially, the day he died and was reborn a vampire. It’s known as his “Deathday”. In ‘The Vampire Drudgeries’, a comedy in one act, we see that for every growing teenage vampire their greatest wish on their “Deathday” is freedom!  This isn’t an uncommon wish, whether you’re a  ‘so called bloodsucking monster’ or an ordinary  human teen.   The freedom to go where he wants and do what he wants.  How about eat what he wants?  Well…..Anton is part of a  coven including; zombies, witches, werewolves and even the Frankenstein monster, that has to live by ‘vegetarian’ rules, thus the freedom to truly accept his true nature would be priceless.

Luckily for Anton, the omens may just be in his favour. Unfortunately, for the rest of us that is not a good sign.

The rules became as unreal as those whom they were imposed on. Unreal, unimaginable and undead.

THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE – SOUTH AFRICAN PLAY FOR SCHOOLS

All the girls at the local girl’s high school are excited to see who’ll be the next head girl and who’ll be a prefect.  There’s the girl who thinks it should be her. Obviously. And the girl who has recently turned over a new leaf and desperately wants to be elected but who has a troubled past. And then there’s the matter of race.  Some girls feel that because last year’s head girl was white, a girl of colour should get the vote this year.    Voting for the head girl starts today and it’s going to be tricky in this South African play for schools…

“Imagine if everyone voted objectively; not because they have a grudge, or because of skin colour, or something that happened in the past. But, instead, they all vote because of the good that the girl could do. They vote for the person who shows the most honesty, integrity, fairness and impartiality. Can you imagine? Then the teachers couldn’t ignore us, because we made a good, solid choice together. That would be cool.”

The pupils all vote for the girl they think are the best choice, but in the end, do the teachers get a say?
