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 social skills and confidence? Participating in a dramatic play develops critical thinking skills, along with reading comprehension and communication skills.
We’re all familiar with team work and its valuable life lessons. Acting in a play requires team work. And, what about role play? Role play has been documented as highly beneficial to a child’s social growth. 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. Plays are hands-on.
Introducing children to this format when they are young is a fun and easy way of instilling these valuable life skills and lessons. As parents, we take our tools any and every way available. A child’s play is another one of those tools not to be overlooked. Why not give a play a try? It’s always a good day for a play.
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 Goodman is a 3 act play with a cast of 7. This play focuses on optimism and positive thinking as well as having the ability to make up your mind.
Adaptation from Hans Anderson
The Two Countrymen A 2 act play with a cast of 5, plus there’s a need for extras. Always fun to use additional participants or audience participation. Here we learn about the cost of practical jokes. Gullability and naivete, as well. You will love the olde language here. Lots of dialect fun.
Ancient legend –
The Man and the Alligator A 2 act play of length for a cast of 5, where we learn the value of critical thinking. Along with the positive value in doing favors for another and of fair treatment. This is a fun tongue twister full of “thee’s” and “thou’s” and more fun olde time dialogue.
Adapted from old folk tale
Why the Buttercup is Yellow Fairies and Goblins and pretty flower people. This one has it all. A 2 act play with a large cast of 18.
Adapted from fairy tale
The Little Jackal A cast of 5. We learn in this 3 act play a bit about manipulation and coercion, double-crosses and pay-backs. Valuable lessons, all.
Adapted from legend
The Girl who trod on the Loaf 4 acts for this cast of 12. Acceptance, sharing, honesty, kindness and selflessness. Yes, it has all of that. A good lesson play, to be sure.
