Fractured Fairy Tales for Student Actors: A Collection of Contemporary Fairy Tale Scenes

Fractured Fairy Tales for Student Actors: A Collection of Contemporary Fairy Tale Scenes by Jan Peterson Ewen


This collection of comedic fairy tale spoofs 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 – For your consideration: the life of Jack and Edith Sprat, and many more. All scenes have flexible, balanced casts. Easy to stage. Excellent contest material.
