About the Book:

The royalty-free scenes in Fractured Fairy Tales for Student Actors are laugh-out-loud funny and clever, to boot!

This collection of comedic fairy tale spoofs by Jan Peterson Ewen is divided into two sections: Short five-minute scenes for two or three actors and longer ten-minute scenes for six to twenty actors. Each scene is a comedic re-enactment of a classic fairy tale. Well-known characters face contemporary situations or have new issues of their own. Sample titles include:

Have a Seat: Miss Muffet sends the spider up a waterspout.
Is the Doctor In? Jack and Jill seek medical help.
Go for the Gold: Sportscasters are interviewing Sprat out at the track where he does his training for candlestick jumping; and many more.

Most of the characters may be played by either gender, and several scenes can be expanded to accommodate an entire classroom. Unlike most scene books, the table of contents even indicates the cast size and genders along with a one line summary. Easy to use and fun for all ages, you'll love the colourful characters and creative situations in these short, hysterical scenes. Excellent contest material.
