ALIEN RESEARCH – FUNNY PLAY FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL

In a Galaxy far far away, on Planet Varney, some time in the future… Captain Skirt from the Alien Research Unit has just returned from his journey to Planet Earth. Earth was abandoned by its population some time ago, after all the trees were destroyed, and life was no longer sustainable. A colony of people from Earth is now living on a planet called ‘Vif’. Captain Skirt has returned from his mission with an interesting discovery: Books! In order to study the contents of the books that he has brought, the Head of the Alien research unit brings each book to life. They reveal fascinating information about the ‘aliens’ and what life was like on Planet Earth. A funny play for primary school with a big cast.

PRODUCTION HISTORY

Country Players, Nelson, New Zealand – 2018

Author: James Chalmers

Genre: Musical for children

Type: One act musical

Cast: Minimum of 10 and up to 15 children

Ages of the actors: Age 11 and under but ages of up to 15 would work

Length: 25 – 30 minutes

Suitable for: Children and the whole family

Set: No set required although the play might benefit from being performed in front of some plain flats – possibly decorated lightly with graffiti. At the front of the stage on either side – are tables for the cards carrying the text messages. The Presenters pick up cards from one side – walk across the front of the stage holding the words up for the audience to read – then they place the cards on the other table. They wait there until the next text message is to be displayed – and they walk back across the other way with the appropriate cards. The words should be on both sides of the cards because the messages are cues for the actor playing the part of Molly.

Level of difficulty: 6/10 – a nice play suitable for a small drama class
