Short Plays & Kids' Drama Worksheets

Short plays & kids' theater

We believe that reading and performing plays are fun and effective ways for students to increasing reading fluency, comprehension and vocabulary development.  Below we provide some sample scripts and drama exercises to introduce kids to plays. 

Sample scripts

These short plays are taken from two collections of short plays which we sell in our bookstore.  Each workbook contains a number of plays and associated exercises and is available for download and printing.
