  • 1.  Need an idea for a play with a young audience

    Posted 10-18-2021 12:14
    I am trying to find a play that is successful with a young audience. I am hoping to do an annual play for the community so that young kids can come and see a performance that is geared towards them. I teach at the high school level.  The other local high school does Winnie the Pooh every year.

    I have done several shows geared to a younger audience with my high school students. A few of the shows that both the high schoolers and the audience have loved would be: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, Zink the Zebra, The Wind and the Willows, and The velveteen Rabbit. There are several amazing scripts out there.
