Class Play based on the Victorians

Class Play based on the Victorians

I wrote this to end our Victorian Topic. It takes about 15 minutes to perform and the parts can easily be reduced/combined or expanded/split to fit any class - currently 27. We performed in front of parents and the rest of the school. The play touches on farming, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Florance Nightingale and Doctor Barnardo as well as the poverty of the era. The 3 compères sat together at the side of the stage. The rest of the children all sat on stage on PE benches, and simply stood up to say their bit. Some of the parts needed children to act together. We only sang the first verse and chorus of Food Glorious Food. Two children started it off as solos. I used YouTube for the words and music, but it sounded better unaccompanied on the day, sounded great! All the children were in simple costumes. You may want to make reference to something to show the scale of the Crystal Palace, as our pub and church won’t be known to your audience! Our exhibition was work from and artifacts we made as a class.
