FOR WHICH AGES ARE THESE SCRIPTS WRITTEN?
This is a difficult question to answer because not every child of a certain age is alike. I have personally used both Much Ado About Nothing and A Midsummer Night’s Dream with my own 7-9 year old students, but my group was an average to highly capable group. I know several middle school teachers (11-14 year old students) who have enjoyed using the same scripts. Generally, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing are written for 8-12 year-olds. Twelfth Night and Romeo & Juliet are written for slightly older students: about 10-14 year-olds and 12-15 year-olds, respectively.
AM I ALLOWED TO COPY THIS MATERIAL?
All scripts are intended for SINGLE CLASSROOM USE and you may copy the STUDENT SCRIPT for the students in your classroom. If you are interested in purchasing scripts for other teachers, please inquire about our significant discount. We are more than happy to accommodate teachers who honor our copyright!
CAN I PERFORM THIS SCRIPT FOR AN AUDIENCE?
Unlike many publishers, we do NOT require you to buy a performance license if you are not charging admission to your production. We know that royalty fees (sometimes as much a $60 a performance) are simply not affordable for the average teacher and often limit students to one performance. We don’t want to hold you or your students back! If you are planning on charging admission to your production, we ask that you pay a small fee ($15-$25) per performance. Please visit our store for more information.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN EACH PURCHASING OPTION?
