Lots of wonderful resources to be found here! I found Drama Notebook my go to place when I needed fresh ideas. My class really enjoyed playing the 'Warm Up' games. Looking forward to performing our first play - plenty of scripts to choose from. Thanks so much for making my planning easier to navigate.

I've been teaching drama for over 25 years now, and I use Drama Notebook for so many lessons, also for my ESL students here in Italy (where I currently live). Fantastic lesson plans, fun exercises, great input for so many different age groups. After 25 years it can be hard to find new inspiration, but you certainly make it a lot easier! Thanks!

I absolutely loved using this site during and leading up to our annual children's theater workshop. We will be performing two of the plays in August. We will likely rejoin when we schedule the next workshop. Thank you for this helpful site!

Both myself and another class were in a pinch and needed a skit for our school's upcoming spring program, only a month away. Both of us were able to find great skits that not only we loved but our students did too! I am very happy with what I was able to find on here and how well organized everything is.

I have used Drama Notebook for SOOOOOOO many theatre productions! I have really enjoyed the story lines crafted by so many playwrights! And I really really love all the downloads for theatre extension lessons that include theatre basics like voice, pantomime, improv, projection, stage directions, etc. etc. I was so nervous the first time that I had a theatre group, but once I downloaded all of the supplemental activity booklets, I was fearless!!!!! I love all the plays to choose from, the flexibility to change things up, a bit, and the affordability of the membership! Thank you so much for all you do to instill the love of theatre in the young ones!

Great resource for those teaching primary and middle school. I teach mostly HS, and used a few of the resources in my Theater I class. It has also been helpful in planning activities for my middle school drama club. All of the material that I have encountered is very approachable and clean, which I appreciate.

I would highly recommend this site. The Shakespeare plays are well adapted and keep the rich language intact. I also like that you can choose different play lengths 20 minutes, 30 minutes and 1 hour.

This is a tremendously helpful resource for any Drama Teacher. It offers a great variety of ideas and inputs for creating Lesson plans, based on great Theatre practitioners and traditions. What I found really cool is the Library with so many play adaptations according to age/ stage.
I will definitely be coming back!

I was new to Drama teaching and Drama Notebook provided me with so much information, help and resources. I cannot recommend this site more highly. I loved getting the weekly games which also assisted my teaching. The only reason I'm cancelling is because I'm going on a caravan trip for 6 months. I will be renewing it upon my return!

I started teaching drama again after several years to a totally different group of students than I was used to. I subscribed to Drama Notebook to get new ideas and resources for my new group and it was so incredibly helpful. I think it's a wonderful resource for new and experienced drama teachers alike.

I subscribed to this great website because I needed plays I could use that were royalty free. What I got from this site was far beyond my expectations. The scripts were varied and incredibly creative. More options were continually being added.

I would recommend this site to everyone eager to give students the joy-filled experience of being on stage.

Great scripts that my students really enjoyed! I only wish there was more scripts for 20+ characters. Overall this website is worth the price for sure!

Hi B, thanks so much for your review! I'm delighted that the site was helpful for you. We actually have plenty of scripts available for over 20+ characters! If you decide to come back to the site, feel free to reach out to me directly at [email protected], and I'll send you a comprehensive list of options. --Julia, member support

As a middle school drama teacher in a rural community, my funds are quite limited. We were looking at doing a play in the spring, and the royalty fees were cost-prohibitive. I had considered doing a Shakespeare play, but felt it was probably beyond my student's ability. A quick Google search, and I found a fantastic adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream on this site that is only an hour long, and perfect for my students. Imagine my delight when I realized that the entire cost of this script is $10. No other fees whatsoever. All I have to do is post a link to this site on my teacher's page and send photos and a few notes about our show. This site is a game changer for theatre educators. Thank you! (I have also joined the site as a member, and am impressed by the quality of the lessons.)--Sincerely, Josh Acosta, TX

This website has been the best thing that every happened to me as a drama club teacher. I run a small before school drama club at the elementary. There are so many amazing resources. The kids loved all the plays and activities. The monthly subscription is completely worth it! It is something that I will use year after year!

What an incredible site. I love teaching but one of my struggles is finding content and decent material. I am always hesitant when it comes to spending money because we all prefer the "free stuff" but I decided to take the plunge and start investing more in better material. Since doing so I am so much less stressed before a lesson and my classes seem to run a lot smoother, the kids really enjoy the material and I am a stronger and more confident teacher because of it. I remember coming home after my first "Drama Notebook infused lesson," specifically, 20 Practice Scenes for Pairs and Two Lines Game and saying to my husband, "Wow! I think that was my best class yet!" So thank you to all the amazing content creators, this material is amazing and worth every cent! Can't wait to teach my next class!

The Drama Notebook is amazing! I was a new Drama Club sponsor this year and I had no idea what I was doing. The Drama Notebook made life so much easier. The activities and scripts are fun engaging and easy for the overwhelmed teacher to use. I will definitely be renewing my subscription next year!

A pleasure to use this site. Many creative ideas. More information for 2nd language learners who tend to be less creative would be appreciated. I'll subscribe later on again. Very useful site for any Drama teachers out there, whether qualified or not. Thank you.

Hi Zagrya, thanks so much for your review. I'm glad the site was helpful for you. We actually have plenty of material for ELL students that I'd be happy to help you locate. When you next resubscribe, feel free to reach out to me any time at [email protected] and I'll point you in the direction of excellent materials for 2nd language learners! --Julia, member support

I can't praise Drama Notebook highly enough. I'll admit I was skeptical when I first heard about it, as a lot of drama curriculum I've seen in the past has been either common sense, too complicated, or boring. Hearing that it was a subscription model gave me even more pause. BUT after attending a free workshop out of pure curiosity, I was impressed with the creators' passion and skills so I gave it a try. I was wrong to ever doubt it! This site has been SUCH a wealth of information, from practical techniques to teaching/classroom management to super easy-to-use scripts and materials. It takes all the guess work out of it. So grateful for Drama Notebook!

Starting a Drama Club at a high school from scratch with $50, I was able to access loads of materials that worked. I initially focussed on games and graduated to skits and short scenes. The number of students varied every meeting, from 2 students to 12, and I was happy with the scope of materials. I appreciated the amount of comedy, especially to start.
