Very well written Nov 13, 2004
I rec'd my shipment much sooner than expected, so that was my first good reaction. I was delighted by the contents. It is categorized by early preschool to adults/teens, there are readings for solo and for theatre and these can be adapted to suit whatever audience/actors available that you have. Clearly explained outline in the production notes with written and diagramed instructions. The scripts are clear throughout the book. Categories from a traditional view to a modern twist on an old story. Very well done and a welcome addition to our home. I will be using one for our Christmas program coming shortly and there's no worry about memorization for this one! My favorite part of this book is that this treasure trove of plays are royalty free!
