Dear Savannah,Congrats on your new position!! My daughter taught Theatre at a Classically oriented school for one year, and I learned they are very classic literature based! Her HS play that year was Mark Twain's only play called "Is He Dead." It is a farce and very comical! I have also leaned toward classic stories with my Middle schoolers through the years. I would suggest plays like Charlotte's Web, The Secret Garden, Tom Sawyer, The Little Princess, and Little Women. There are all kinds of versions of all these plays, as well as musical versions. Also, become a member of Dramanotebook.com!! That is my all time favorite site with all kinds of scripts of fairy tales and Shakespeare.
