Description

Maya School Assembly

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.

Cast of 30 (easily adjusted up or down)

Duration: Around 20 minutes

Self-important kings, moody gods, ...not to mention that chocoholic! Our narrator finds his/her work cut out as usual, keeping things moving along smoothly - within the normal time confines but this time working to a Maya calendar - just enough time to cover those 20 days - in words and numbers, Maya style of course!

Maya Guided Reading Scripts (5) - 6 speakers each - also now available off website. Great supplementary classroom resource.

Recent review: 20.5.15 Dear Sue,Thank you for the Maya assembly – it looks fantastic!  Just the right balance of humour and information.  It looks straight forward to present too – useful production notes.Really looking forward to (rather than dreading) my assembly now!Cheers,Kate

Sample Text:

Lord Pacal:          I am the great Lord Pacal! I ruled for 68 years, from A.D. 615 to 684.

(Enter Child 8 holding up Classic Period banner)

Child 8:                 This was at the beginning of the Classic Period – A.D. 600 to 900.

Narrator:             The Classic Period, you say? What was so classic about it?

Child 8:                 This was when the Maya were at their most successful – their peak time, if you like.

Narrator:             So let’s hear about their achievements during that time.

(Exit Child 8)

Lord Pacal:          How about we start with … me?

Narrator:             (Aside, sarcastically) Why didn’t I hear that coming?

Lord Pacal:          (Holding up pictures) Now. If you look very carefully you can see me, linking the realm of my ancestors to that of the gods.

Narrator:             Ah! I’ve heard about that sacred kingship!

Lord Pacal:          But that’s not all!

Narrator:             (Aside) I didn’t think it would be!

Lord Pacal:          I was also the guarantor of fertility, rain and crops – here, see on these pictures! And that’s not all!

Narrator:             (Sarcastically) Really? Now there’s a surprise!

Lord Pacal:          I was also a magnificent warrior!

Narrator:             (Sarcastically) Really?

Lord Pacal:          Oh, I know. Who’d have thought it! All this in just one life time!

Narrator:             Amazing!

Lord Pacal:          Course, I had to make sure people didn’t forget me.

Narrator:             As if!

Lord Pacal:          So I had a temple built, when I was in my seventies. And my son completed it after my death – placing my body in that crypt below the temple.

(Enter Archaeologist)

Narrator:             You, again?

Archaeologist:    Ah yes! I think I forgot to mention my name before. It’s Albert Ruz and it was I who discovered this tomb in 1952! Course, he (pointing at Lord Pacal) wasn’t alone!

Narrator:             What do you mean?

Lord Pacal:          (Exclaiming in shock) Alone? Oh! The very thought of it! Over my dead body, as they say!

Archaeologist:    Well, maybe not over – but certainly around. (Waving as he exits) See you around!

                              (To audience) I’m off – before he decides to add me to those unfortunate subjects!

(Exit Archaeologist)

Narrator:             (Impatiently) What?

Lord Pacal:          Oh, that would be five of my subjects. All sacrificed at the time of my death. There was no way I was going to the next life by myself!

Narrator:             Delightful!

Lord Pacal:          Oh, I was! Quite charming! And highly respected, of course!

Narrator:             Of course! Not that your people had a lot of choice! And as for the company you kept ..

(Enter priests 1 & 2, carrying ‘bags’)

Lord Pacal:          Aha! My priests! And what sacrifices do you have for us today?
