Grease Musical Movie Wordsearch Drama Performing Arts Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Grease Musical Movie Wordsearch Drama Performing Arts Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Grease'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Oliver Full Production Pack

Oliver Full Production Pack

**This pack includes** An Adaptation of Oliver Script: This is a script that has been performed successfully by primary school aged children with adults, but can be performed by high school age and above. It's 1 hour without an interval but has been written as two 30 minute Acts. Including the music adds about 10 minutes on each Act. The lines are suitable for children to learn (in our performance Oliver and Dodger were 8 years old) and has a suitable ending for a children's production. The cover picture gives you an idea of costume and staging. I have had media consents to use this picture. Oliver Poster Template: This is an A4 size poster to accompany my Oliver Production. Easy to edit with a striking design. Just enter your details, the rest is done for you. Oliver Tickets Template: An A4 printable sheet of 8 Tickets to accompany my Oliver Production. Easy to edit and looks very effective when printed on card. Just enter your details, the rest is done for you.

OCR GCSE Drama written exam revision sessions

OCR GCSE Drama written exam revision sessions

This powerpoint includes direction on the possible types of questions that could be on the exam and how the students could answer them. It includes tasks, peer assessment and learning objectives. The power point has one slide that mentions blood brothers as the set text but could be easily adapted to include a different one. The creating question worksheets are designed around Blood Brothers but again could be adapted. I suggest that it is taught over 3-5 lessons.

Cast of 30 (with some doubling up) Duration: Around 30 minutes not including the music suggestions. Also available: · The Wizard of Oz Guided Reading Scripts (10 of these, with 6 speakers each; around 3 minutes each – total reading time around 30 minutes Sample Text: Wicked Witch: Now. Where have that little gang of misfits got to? I don’t suppose anyone would miss them! Narrator: Whatever do you mean, ma’am? ‘Miss them’? Wicked Witch: Oh, haven’t you heard? I’m about to wipe them off the face of Oz! Good riddance I say! Narrator: (Gasping) You what? But you can’t! Wicked Witch: Oh really? Just watch me! (Enter Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman and Cowardly Lion) Wicked Witch: Ah here they all are! Right on cue! Like lambs to the slaughter! (Sound of wolves howling) Wicked Witch: Bring on the wolves! (Enter wolves – who are then all ‘knocked out’ by Tin Woodman) (Whole cast cheers, as Tin Woodman waves his axe triumphantly) (Exit wolves, rubbing their heads) Wicked Witch: (To Tin Woodman) Hey! That’s no way to treat my pets! I’ll report you to the RSPCA! (Sound of Crows ‘cawing’) Wicked Witch: Bring on the crows! (Enter crows. Scarecrow pulls a silly face and they all retreat in terror) (Whole cast cheers, as Scarecrow struts up and down triumphantly) Wicked Witch: Hey! What happened to my crows? Narrator: (Pointing to Scarecrow) Well, he is a scarecrow, remember? (Wicked Witch stamps her foot in disgust) (Sound of bees buzzing) Wicked Witch: Bring on the black bees! (Enter bees. Each ‘stings’ Tin Woodman then ‘drops down dead’) (Whole cast cheers as Tin Woodman struts around victoriously) Wicked Witch: (Shrieking) Now what? What has happened to my black bees? Narrator: Er, I think you’ll find they just all died. Isn’t that what bees do, once they have stung? Wicked Witch: (Shaking fist) Drat! And double drat! Why didn’t I think of that? (Sound of marching feet) Wicked Witch: Bring on my Winkie Soldiers! (Enter Winkie Soldiers, marching purposefully towards ‘the group’) (Lion lets out a huge roar and the soldiers all panic and run away in terror) (Whole cast cheers as Cowardly Lion struts around triumphantly) (Wicked Witch screams her dismay) Wicked Witch: Right! That’s it! You’ve asked for it this time!

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Christmas Play

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Christmas Play

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Christmas Play Cast of 30 (with some doubling up) Duration: around 30 minutes (without music suggestions) This is a fun, simple to produce a class play or assembly - it can also be used for panto purposes. After writing the set of guided reading scripts based on the story, I couldn't resist writing another play whilst the story and characters were still fresh in my head! Though Dorothy is not quite as 'wholesome' as in the original story and the Wizard of Oz is a little more 'versatile' in this version! Also available: • The Wizard of Oz Guided Reading Scripts (10 of these, with 6 speakers each; around 3 minutes each – total reading time around 30 minutes) • The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Play – the non-Xmas version! Sample Text: (Toto reluctantly wags tail at Dorothy) Dorothy: (Patting Toto on the head) That’s better! An obedient pooch! Now we can get the show on the road! Toto: But, just as a matter of interest, what happened to that other Dorothy – the one I rehearsed with? Dorothy: (Dismissively) Oh didn’t you hear? She got caught up in one too many cyclones! Nasty business if you don’t get it right! (Sound of howling wind, followed by long scream) Music 2 Ding Dong the Witch is Dead Narrator: Good heavens! What on earth was that? (Enter Good Witch of the North, with great panache and thunderous applause from the cast, carrying a pair of silver shoes. She is accompanied by three Munchkins) Good Witch: (Curtseying to the cast) Ah thank you so much! (Cast continues to clap and cheer) Good Witch: Oh now, really. You’re too kind! Dorothy: (Scowling) I’ll say! How come I didn’t get that kind of reception? Good Witch: Oh dear! What’s with the scowly face? That’s not very pretty, dear! Toto: (To Good Witch) I think she’s a bit put out – that you seem to have stolen the show! Good Witch: (Incredulously) Stolen the show? Me? The Good Witch of the North? With all my panache and presence? Oh, surely not? (Good Witch twirls and beams broadly from ear to ear) Good Witch: (To Dorothy) I bet you too have loads of superstar qualities! (Pauses) Only, you’re just keeping them rather well hidden! Dorothy: Huh! I’ll have you know, some of us have business to attend to! Good Witch: Well, I have to hand it to you. Killing the Wicked Witch of the East was pretty smart! Toto: (Exclaiming) She what? Good Witch: (Waving silver shoes around) Oh yes! And here’s the evidence! Bit of inspiration, my dear, landing that house directly on top of the witch! Here are her shoes, all that’s left of her!
