Fractured Fairy Tales for Student Actors

By: Jan Peterson Ewen

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School

This collection of comedic fairy tale spoofs is divided into two sections: Short five-minute scenes for two or three actors and longer ten-minute scenes for six to twenty actors. Each scene is a comedic re-enactment of a classic fairy tale. Well-known characters face contemporary situations or have new issues of their own. Sample titles include: Have a Seat - Miss Muffet sends the spider up a waterspout. Is the Doctor In? - Jack and Jill seek medical help. Go for the Gold - For your consideration: the life of Jack and Edith Sprat, and many more. All scenes have flexible, balanced casts. Easy to stage. Excellent contest material.

(144 pages, 5½ x 8½, paperback)
