Nice resources! I loved using the endless free monologues for my class. Had my students find one that interested them to memorize. Made a great class project. Downloaded a whole bunch of scripts that I'm looking forward to using.

A lot of the resources on the site seem to be geared towards younger age groups - nonetheless I still found great options for use in the classroom for my more mature students as well!

I did two 10 credit downloads (20$) and, based on the resources I got, it's enough to cover a couple of months if used right.

As a drama teacher with no curriculum, Drama Notebook has been invaluable to me. I've relied on it weekly to provide lessons, scripts, and activities for my theatre students. I can't recommend this website enough!

Drama Notebook has been such a help to this new drama teacher. I love that I can find a plan for my classes along with suggested activities. And it is truly open-and-go….I don’t have to spend time coming up with emotions or occupations for various activities. They are already prepared and vetted for me. Highly highly recommend this site. You’ll definitely want the yearly plan as there are SO many things you’ll want to download!

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!

I'll admit I was a little skeptical when I first heard of Drama Notebook a few years ago. I very wrongly assumed that it was some kind of watered-down, elementary-teacher-with-no-actual-theatre-training type of site. While it CAN help these types of teachers, the exercises, tips, and scripts are fantastic for even seasoned drama folks. For me, it helps create a structure to a lot of the abstract techniques I've been taught myself, it sparks my imagination further, and reveals so many games I've never heard of before. The sheer volume of resources is impressive. I also attended a free workshop, and Janea and Jennifer were so warm and genuine. I definitely recommend D.N. to anyone teaching drama to kids and teens!

I was SOOOO happy to find these awesome resources!

Working with drama students from grade 3 to grade 8 this year - was able to find wonderful activities from warmups to full plays and lots of things in-between to do with my students! Thank you Drama Notebook!

I really love DN. There is a huge collection for drama teachers.

If you look for lesson plans you can find almost everything here.

I wish there would be something like this in german or other languages too. 🤞🏼

This site is extremely helpful for finding assembly and drama ideas both for schools, churches and everything in between. IF you are a drama teacher, this site is a must for you.

This is a great fun, helpful and appreciated sight. In all the wisdom shared with the teachers, it has helped me cut through to the heart of why the kids were taking Drama Class and what they were looking for. This pandemic hasn't been a helpful developmental time in their life. Drama helps connect them to their friends, their classmates and their confidence. Thank you for providing silly, fun skits and helpful information for them to achieve this.

I respect and appreciate Drama Notebook immensely, however, why I cancelled my subscription was, when I have paid to download 'lessons' which I found to be useful to me, I was only given so much time to use the credits of which I had bought and more than once, have inevitably lost the credits, wasted money and become frustrated.

Question: why can't the expiry date of these credits at least have some longevity to them?

Hi Warren, we work hard to keep this site very affordable for drama teachers and people wanting to use drama lessons and scripts. You get ten credits per month for $9.95 (almost everything on Drama Notebook is one credit) and credits do roll over month to month if unused. If you cancel, you do need to use your credits before your subscription expires. They do not stay on your account indefinitely.

This is a wonderful site for short scripts and activities for the Drama classroom. I love using their resources, and their customer contact team is extremely kind and helpful! I have recommended them to other performing arts teachers in my area!

I have loved accessing the resources on this site - I teach 4-16 years and there's something for all of them. It has helped me enormously as I run my own business (the theatre school) as well as home educate my three children and it's go to scripts have really fed into my planning. Thank you :)

This is a website I will forever subscribe to whenever I teach drama! I love the ease of subscribing for however long you need it and all the available content. My students are new to acting, and we've been using the scripts to play around with blocking, voice projection, etc. I think one day I'll have enough interest to put on an actual production, and the materials on this site allow me to focus on teaching rather than researching or writing material for them.

This site was fantastic in the lead up to our end-of-year school performance. The scripts were witty, age-appropriate and it was great that there were many different choices with regards to cast numbers and duration of play.

This site was a blessing! Suddenly, I needed a short Christmas performance activity for my class and Drama Notebook came to the rescue. I came for one activity but have left 20+. There are so many helpful tips for a teacher new to teaching drama. If I need anything else, this is where I will look first! I will recommend Drama Notebook to our teaching staff! Thank you!

I downloaded a couple of pdfs. I haven't used them yet. I'm a grandpa with young grandkids. I plan on using the parachute script to make a film with two young kids. Then I will put the movie (shot with the computer camera app, film made with Movavi, then up to YouTube channel) up on the internet. I will send you a copy when it's finished. - Marty

A great selection of scripts. I wanted to peruse a few for download, so I purchased a monthly subscription. Found the scripts I wanted, downloaded, and the cancellation process was super easy (always appreciated).

This site offers amazing teaching material! I teach English as a Foreign Language and these scripts help me to motivate my students to keep learning.

I love Drama Notebook for the variety of scripts they offer, especially for middle grade students in the classroom. Their scripts tend to be much more fun to read and perform than others I am reading out there. It is a wonderful resource!

This is an awesome site for activities and materials that support Drama programs at a variety of levels! No matter what age of students you are working with, there are engaging and fun lessons, warmups and activities to help them explore their creativity and challenge them. I check back frequently to see what new resources have been added, and my students have loved getting to use such a variety of things, with everyone having their own favorites! This is a great value and loads of helpful resources for anyone working with kids in Drama. I highly recommend it!

What a wealth of resources and knowledge compiled in one easy to use place! This was exactly what we needed. With little to no experience in theatre we were able to use the resources for a fun atmosphere with students from K-12 :)

I needed abbreviated Shakespeare scripts for use in my homeschool. I have children between the ages of 7 and 13, and I was able to find scripts that were accessible to all of them. They were a great length for our purposes, and it was so convenient to find them all in one place!

I recently made the switch from high school drama to elementary school drama. The resources available on Drama Notebook helped make it a smooth transition.

I love this site! I will most likely subscribe to it again when I get to teach another drama course or if my class this semester eats up the materials I've downloaded so far.

$10 is an amazing price for what you get, especially if you only teach drama occasionally.

Fantastic resources! I particularly liked the scope and sequence documents which have been a huge help for long-term planning. It was after attending the brilliant planning workshop that I signed up and the resources did not disappoint. Thank you to the Drama Notebook team.

I literally just came across this website when looking for some quick ideas to build rapport with a new drama program I started. Our high school has been missing drama for at least 5 years and I am building it again. I wanted some quick ideas to get things rolling quickly knowing we would not be doing a production till the spring. Within one night, I realized that the wealth of resources was worth it and decided to upgrade to the yearly. SOOOOOO worth it. The Drama Nerds are going to have a blast with these great ideas! Thank you :)

Great for classroom activities in middle school! We've used so many scripts for monologues, small group, and large group skits!

Drama Notebook has been the resource I really needed as a teacher new to teaching Theater. I teach Music and Theater to Kindergarten through 8th grade and teaching drama was something I had no experience in and wasn't very comfortable doing. I didn't know where to go for good resources until I found Drama Notebook. I have started the school year with the 9 week lesson plan for beginning acting and each lesson has gone so well and the students are engaged and enjoying themselves. I feel like I actually have a direction and know what to teach now! I'm looking forward to using all of the resources I have collected and knowing that there is always more content coming out makes me confident that I will have a successful year of teaching drama.
