5 pages, approximately 10 minutes. Parts for 7 actors. Ages 7-13.

Do you need fun short plays to perform with your students?

The Drama Notebook scripts are designed to feature ensemble casts, meaning every actor plays a colorful, meaningful part.

In this play, an old donkey, hound dog and a cat run away from their owners in a quest to live out their days in a famed city. Along the way, they encounter other animals who join them in their quest.

This five page script stays true to the original Grimm’s Fairy Tale. It is perfect to perform as part of a festival of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, or to introduce actors to the concept of using scripts and memorizing lines.
