i kinda need help to write this script for a play for kids.it's a play involving puppets and it was performed a while ago for our whole school but now the teachers want me to write the script modified so that it's fit to be viewed by kids of about 4 - 8years old.
i just need some advice and elements that would appeal to kids...
i have to use Hans Christian Andersons' characters so thats sorted
...hans christian anderson? eek, i'd definitely do a disney on that (i'm sure you know what i mean, but if you don't, have a quick look at the original story of 'the little mermaid.'). keep the language simple and don't use any concepts that would be unfamiliar to a 4-year old. you could use simple double meanings to appeal to the older members of the audience (à la 'shrek'), but you should be careful not to alienate the littleuns, because they are the ones who will make a fuss if you do. what is the current script like?
yeah,thats cos evidently Hans was a really ugly kid and he was very insecure about it so all his stories are a touch morbid...
i'm supposed to make them bright and flowery.huzzah...not
thanks for the link btw
