    This dramatic adaptation, sprinkled with comedic commentary, is a winner for elementary, middle, and early high school. Shakespeare's Scottish tragedy is told within a lively and humorous story-theatre frame. Macbeth and his Lady covet the crown while witches, ghosts, kings and soldiers sweep across the landscape, carving out the battle between good and evil. Shakespeare characters speak the Bard's words, while storytellers fill in plot and comment wryly on the escalating action. Learn More

    This one-act dramatization of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass is distinguished by the ingenious directions for making all the magical special effects easy to stage. It is both fun to do and fun to watch. Most of the revered characters are here: the rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, and, perhaps best of all, the Oyster show. With no front curtain, the main stage is skeletal and a bit dark. Recommended for contest, children's theatre and workshops. Learn More
