One Act Plays for Kids

Authored by Mr Charles Robertson

One Act Plays for Kids is the creative result of my work with Bottle Tree Productions acting students. The kids in these classes are from 6-12 In our ten week acting sessions, we get together for the first two or three classes and do theatre games, improv stories and basic acting techniques. Usually the students come up with story ideas, characters and they work out an initial improvised story which I then turn into a script.

King Hector the Horizontal is
the story of a brave princess who climbs a mountain to slay a dragon and save the kingdom

guppy getaway is
an underwater fantasy about life under the sea for a school of guppies who get lost in the ocean

Night of the Gnomes is the story of
Four garden gnomes rise up in rebellion against their human masters.

Toys in the Closet speaks to the imagination in all children-The idea that their toys are alive

Our Acting Classes are a safe place for students to share their imagination and creativity. Theatre is a place where kids can bond with other like-minded kids. Their skills are honed in front of a jury of their peers. They quickly learn what works and what doesn't. Their ideas form the basis of these scripts. As a result these plays do not speak down to kids, but speaks for them, using their own words, their own thoughts and their own imaginations.
