La Mariposa is a Spanish folktale about a beautiful butterfly and her search for a husband. It’s filled with colorful characters and positive feelings! This is a wonderful story to use with kids when putting on a play for the first time. There are enough parts for up to twenty to thirty students and each player has a colorful, meaningful part.

The script itself is three pages long and has an approximate running time of ten minutes.

Also includes:

  • Study guide that gives a brief synopsis of the story.
  • List of discussion questions related to the folk tale.
  • Two pages of extension activities.
  • Production notes that list tips for performing the story in an ordinary school setting.
