Roman Drama Roles- Whole Class Set

A class set of drama roles for acting out different scenarios. You could warm-up by playing Upstairs/Downstairs or use it at the end of a topic to show the day in the life of a Roman.

Nativity play - with a difference! - Full script plus posters and program

Nativity play - with a difference! - Full script plus posters and program

‘Not another Nativity!’ was written for secondary school students as a counter to the endless primary nativity plays! It was also written as a small memorial to George Micheal with two of his songs ‘Faith’ and ‘Last Christmas’ featuring. It is a light-hearted comedy, a play within a play focusing on a class of Year 11 students who want to do things their way… could be easily adapted for year 6 students who want to do a special nativity for their last year in primary The play is about 12 - 15 minutes long in total, with 11 speaking parts (though these parts can doubled up or divided in further characters as necessary). Very few props are needed and no special staging or lighting. I have also included a promotional poster for students, a promo poster for parents and a program - all you need to do is complete with school logo and student names. I do hope you enjoy it as much as my students did - any questions please do message me!
