Fairy Tales Assembly
This assembly or class play is based upon the following fairy tales:
· Sleeping Beauty
· Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
· The Three Little Pigs
· Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Cast of 30 (easily adaptable up or down)
Around 10 minutes reading time (without inclusion of music suggestions)
Quite an eye-opener this one - for our narrator, at least! It would seem you really shouldn't judge a book by its cover - well, certainly not when you're dealing with these fairy tale characters!
Music 6 Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf
(Wolf suddenly jumps out from hiding, bringing cheerful singing to an abrupt halt)
Wolf: (Grinning) Ha! Not so full of yourselves now, huh?
Little Pig 1: (Hiding behind Little Pig 3) You don’t frighten me!
Little Pig 2: (Hiding behind Little Pig 3) You can’t bully us!
Wolf: (Laughing) Oh really?
(Wolf lets out a huge growl and all three little pigs ‘run for their lives’)
Wolf: (Laughing) Whose afraid now?
Narrator: Now, that really wasn’t very nice of you!
Wolf: (Repeating, incredulously) Nice of me? Whoever heard of a nice Big Bad Wolf?
Narrator: But you’re not really big and bad, are you?
Wolf: Of course not! But (pointing to the audience) I have to keep this lot happy, don’t I?
Narrator: You mean, being big and bad is what is expected of you?
Wolf: Of course! It’s all an act!
Narrator: (Clapping) Well, you’re very convincing! And (looking at audience) I for one am mighty relieved he’s not as bad as you all think he is!
(Wolf shakes hands with narrator, growls savagely at audience, and exits)
Narrator: Ah! I do so love happy endings! Me still being alive, that is!
(Narrator looks through notes, nearly jumping out of his/her skin as next group appears)
(Enter Three Bears – Mummy – 1; Daddy -2; and Baby - 3)
Bear 1: Hey! Why so jumpy?
Bear 2: What’s up, bro?
Bear 3: (To other two) I think someone needs a bear hug!
(All three bears give narrator a bear hug)
Narrator: (Shakily) Well, thank you! That was a little (pauses) unexpected!
Bear 1: Nah! There’s only one baddie in our story!
(Enter Goldilocks, singing)
Music 7 If you go down to the woods today
Bears 1, 2 & 3: Guess who?
Narrator: (Spluttering) But, but … She looks so
Bear 1: Sweet?
Bear 2: I don’t think so!
Bear 3: (To Goldilocks) Who ate my porridge?
Goldilocks: (Hesitating) Well ..
Bear 3: Who broke my chair?
Goldilocks: Um ..
Bear 3: Who slept in my bed?
Goldilocks: (Spluttering) But … you were all out?
Narrator: And that gave you the right to enter private property, eat their food, sit on their furniture and sleep in their beds?
(Goldilocks bows her head in shame)
Bear 1: (To Narrator) Still think she’s sweet?
