Scroll down to purchase script and performing rights certificate

Please note: The script is available in word document format on purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. The scripts remain free of performance rights for staging in the class room but as an assembly in front of a non-paying audience you need to buy a single Performance Rights Certificate to cover you for the play you are purchasing.

A History of the Olympics Assembly or Class Play. This assembly uses the 18 countries that have so far hosted the Olympic Games,  plus Brazil (2016 host) each giving a brief summary of their 'contribution' to the Games' history so far. The last host was of course Great Britain - the script now fully updated. 

Duration: Around 15 minutes reading time. But with inclusion of music, this could go up to between 20 and 30 minutes.

Also available off website:

A Complete History of the Olympics: Set of 8 Guided Reading Scripts Covering the period from Ancient History to the present. This is a very comprehensive overview of the Games history - including world events. There are eight scripts - with the usual 6 speakers and quiz at the end of each. £20 This is the original set of 6 from Ancient to 2004 plus two updates of 2008 and 2012 – thus making a set of 8 scripts

plus wide selection of other scripts: assemblies, Quiz and Ode.

Sample Text:

1. Simply the Best - Tina Turner

(Children file in, waving flags triumphantly)

Coubertin:          Good morning and welcome to our class play on The History of the Olympics - when nations compete against each other, in the most sporting manner.

(19 nations stand up with flags, cheering loudly)

(Zeus plus 3 Ancient Greeks stride onto stage, folding their arms in front of them, taking up an aggressive stance)

Coubertin:          ‘Course, it wasn't always like that. Back in 776 BC it was only athletes from across Ancient Greece who competed.

Zeus:                     In my honor!

Sostratos:            5 days

Leonidas:             7 events

Kallipateira:        (Scowling) And no women!

Coubertin:          Ah! The good old days! When men were men, and women were women!

Kallipateira:        I thought you were here to represent the Modern Olympics?

Coubertin:          Indeed I am. And you're about to see just how many changes took place over the years

Zeus:                     Not necessarily for the better! (Looking around) I can't see any of this lot paying me homage! And what are those women doing, mingling with the men athletes?

Coubertin:          (In disgust) They're competing too!


For performance rights, please select from options below. Please note that these are in addition to the price of the play (11.99). For extra certificates (additional performances) and any queries re: performance rights please email me on
