Overview

Children love acting out plays whether it is reading aloud in a classroom or performing in front of a large audience. Stage Start Two is a collection of 20 plays for children. It provides children with the opportunity to have lots of fun and enjoyment as well as helping them to develop reading, comprehension and communication skills. The first two plays in this collection are short and simple. They are based on two very popular nursery rhymes – Humpty Dumpty and Little Bunny Foo Foo. Rudolph, The Missing Reindeer tells the story of Rudolph’s disappearance before Christmas and how Santa Claus has to call on a variety of nursery rhyme characters to help him in his search for his reindeer. The next five plays – The Three Little Pigs, The Elves and the Shoemaker, The Magic Porridge Pot, The Stone Soup and The Pied Piper of Hamelin are based on traditional tales, familiar and well loved by children all over the world.
King Midas is a Greek myth where the greedy king Midas wishes that everything he touches turns to gold - but be careful what you wish for! The Tiger, Old Man and the Jackal comes from an old Indian legend. The terrible tiger is outwitted by the small but very clever jackal.
The following five plays are based on stories by famous children’s authors. Peter Pan is a about a boy who lives in the magical world of Neverland where he never grows up. Pinocchio, written by Italian novelist Carlo Collodi, is about a wooden puppet who longs to be a real boy. How the Elephant got his Trunk is based on the Elephant’s Child from Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories. The Happy Prince is based on Oscar Wilde’s well-loved fable and it focuses on loyalty and kindness. Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland follows Alice as she goes on wonderful adventures in Wonderland where she meets extraordinary characters like a talking White Rabbit, the March Hare and the very horrid Queen of Hearts. The final five plays in this collection – Home for Christmas, A Night Out, It is Better to Forget, The Body and Saint Bernadette have fewer characters and can be used in smaller drama classes or with smaller groups.
