PLAYS I'VE WRITTEN OR ADAPTED FOR STUDENT FUN AND
I have not placed any scripts on this site simply because of length and space.Please contact me should you wish to perform any of these and I will help you out with suggestions. Names can, of course, be changed and roles adapted as needed for your class or audience. All of my work here was written for educational purposes. Performing in front of an audience helps give those of all ages confidence in their own abilities to speak and bring enjoyment and laughter to others. Performances can also be linked to special or fund-raising events as you wish. They are not overly difficult to perform and the children or young adults normally find great joy in doing so. Audiences love them! You may also purchase any of them at www.TeachersPayTeachers.com
