ALL NEW for 2015
Fables – Children’s Plays Volume 1 – 6 fun fables from your favorites: Grimms, Aesops, Hans Anderson, old legends and stories past through the ages. All transformed into action plays for your young thespians. As with all fables, there’s usually a moral lesson to learn. Still true! Each play holds a moral lesson, as usual. It’s always a good day for a play.
And, yes, performing in a play is fun. Watching a play is fun. But, did you know that plays are actually beneficial for teaching language skills, developing confidence and social skills, critical thinking skills, along with reading comprehension and development. Communication skills (verbal and non-verbal) are enhanced through drama.
We are all familiar with team work and its valuable life lessons. Acting in a play requires team work. Another highly documented benefit to a child’s social growth is participating in role play. That’s what acting in a play is! - Role play. Even kids who complain about not wanting to read are interested in the dramatizations. Let’s face it, not all children like to sit with a book in their hand. Some are hands-on learners. Yes, another benefit to a play. Introducing children to this format when they are young is a great means of instilling these valuable life lessons. Familiarity is a good thing when it comes to getting children’s cooperation. Is it not? Sometimes they’re not so eager to try new things, but once they dive in, they might just be hooked!
Today is a good day for a play! Let’s have a look at what’s new
Highlights of the 6 Plays you’ll receive:
The Golden Goose A cast of 5 will have fun with this nice length 4 act play. Positive rewards come to those who deserve them.
Adapted from folk tale
The Song in the Heart A nice length. This cast of 7 has 2 acts which highlights the positive behavior traits of honesty and truthfulness. It also highlights quite nicely the rewards of following your heart’s dreams.
Adapted from Grimm’s
The Emperor’s Test Here we have a 3 act play with a large cast of 12. Watch and learn how important the powers of observation are. We learn, also, a bit about entitlements. Anyone who has suffered through an employment interview will appreciate this funny play. That will be lost on most of the participants, but the audience will certainly identify.
The Red Shoes A great size cast of 12 with 4 acts, we learn there is a cost of deception and dishonesty. You will see how the sin of pride takes its toll. But, there is always the possibility of redemption. Quite satisfactory in the end.
Adapted from Hans Anderson
The Wild Swans Wow! What a cast – 25 and 4 acts too. This is a great play. Full of possibilities. Love can conquer mountains. The power of love and perseverance makes this play’s message very rewarding. Courage is a virtue, you don’t have to be big and strong to own. This play highlights that perfectly.
Adapted from Hans Anderson
The Ugly Duckling Another great play in size and length. This cast of 25 has 3 acts for plenty of acting fun. Here we learn about acceptance, friendship, bigotry, fair treatment and prejudice. It has it all. Positive lessons, to be sure.
