Two-page science-fiction themed script for young children. Parts for fifteen, with flexible casting.

Do you need a simple script for younger children (ages 5-10), with a science or alien theme? This was first performed by lower elementary students in the Fantasy in the Classroom program through Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater in Huntsville, AL.

The class format was five hours of instruction followed by a short showcase. One challenge these students faced was a lack of interpersonal skills. In fact, one student struggled with the idea of being silly or “stupid” to such an extent that he would completely shut down and have to leave the classroom. Therefore, the author purposely included silly moments that acclimated the students to behaving in a silly way for an important purpose.

Doubling and tripling is possible with this script. Additional tableaus between the aliens and the explorers can also be explored.
