This is a tongue-in-cheek adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Princess and the Pea.” In this tale, a rain-soaked princess must prove that she is in fact, a ‘real princess’ by enduring a ridiculous test by the queen.

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

Also includes:

  • Study guide that gives background on the author and the origin of the story.
  • List of discussion questions related to the story.
  • Three pages of extension activities.
  • Production notes that list tips for performing the story in an ordinary school setting.

The Drama Notebook Scripts+ Activities are unique to Drama Notebook. The scripts are written to accommodate a flexible number of cast members, and the extension activities and study guides are designed to help students develop a connection to the lessons in the story and to deepen their understanding of the text.
