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.
Our Planet Assembly
Duration: Around 15 to 20 minutes NOT including music suggestions.
Cast Size: 30 (adaptions available in Production Notes)
This assembly or class play looks at man's impact on the environment - in the context of five different habitats: a pond, the rainforest, the Poles, the Desert and the Ocean - and what we can do to undo the harm done.
Poison in the pond, fire in the forest, no anti-freeze in the Arctic, oil pollution in the oceans and deserts - is there no end to man's destruction of his environment? Can the human race be trained to look after the planet Earth? And what do all the animals in these diverse habitats have to say about it all? Read on and find out!
(Also available for this unit, set of 5 guided reading play scripts plus quizzes - on the five different habitats and what man can do to reverse the harmful effect he has had on the environment - see Guided Reading Play Scripts Section; plus Jawesome Jury - a play for 2 speakers or 6, based on a courtroom with sharks versus human!)
This script (plus Jawesome Jury and Sea Life Quizzes) could be used for IFAW Animal Action Week, Sept 28 - Oct 4 or World Habitat Day, Oct 5.

(Enter Scorpion, Camel, Kingsnake, Meerkat, Locust and Tarantula)
Camel: (Grumbling) So, what's all this about? I was just having a well earned rest. This had better be good!
Meerkat: Oh dear! He's gone and got ‘the hump' again!
Camel: And so would you have, if you'd just walked 20 kilometers!
Meerkat: Not me, mate! I stick to my burrows!
Tarantula: And me! Unless, of course, a tasty morsel happens to wander past! And then it's Pounce! Poison! Crush! Spit! And then Suck!
Locust: Delightful! Remind me to keep well away from your clutches!
Kingsnake: Or mine! That's what I do best!
Scorpion: What's that?
