The Fisherman and His Wife (Snipes)
"I bought a copy of The Fisherman and His Wife at SETC this past spring, and it turned out to be a wonderful production. The audience participation was overwhelming. We had to mike the actors so they could be heard over the wind and sea. It was also a simple show to produce but was very effective in its simplicity." —Becki David Bradford, Drama Club Falculy Advisor, Chattanooga State

"The Fisherman and His Wife kept the attention of our children for an extended period of time … what a task! The children love to be a part of the action, and you cue them and include them in age-appropriate ways. Thanks for another great arts experience for our students." —Upper Primary teacher
Participation play for kindergarten through 5th grade. By Larry and Vivian Snipes.

Cast: 1 to 2m., 2w. Remember the tale of the fisherman who catches an enchanted fish and uses his three wishes (and hers) to try to bring happiness to his wife? This delightful adaptation taps into the magic of audience participation. Here you use children in the audience for scenery, sound effects, extensions of the action, even walk-on parts. As the fish grants the fisherman's wife's spiraling wishes, the audience creates sea and storms, goes fishing, and becomes chickens and ducks in the farmyard and servants in the magnificent castle the fish provides for the fisherman's wife. The study guide included with the script emphasizes pre- and post-performance activities that focus on the aesthetic, kinesthetic, spatial, musical and interpersonal intelligences as well as suggestions for logical and linguistic projects. Experience the joy of audience participation with this fun-filled play! Bare stage. Approximate running time: 45 minutes.
