play for kids aged 9 TO 14


Junk food, video games and music. Detention has never been so awesome. Or so deadly. As three students who are sent to detention find out when the zombie teacher attempts to soften their brains with sweets, video games and music in order to make them more
delicious! Will the students succumb to the zombies or will they change their ways? It might very well save their lives – in more ways than one. Zombies in the Staff Room is a comedy play for kids aged 9 to 14.

It is a fun script, that students should find enjoyable to perform and audiences will find it fun to watch. It requires at least 7 characters, and at least 2 of them must be zombies – but there can be plenty more than that – the more zombies, the better! The language is at senior elementary level. There are two ‘adult’ roles, but older
students could play these.
