Welcome to my website

I have just added below scripts for AUTUMN TERM (apologies to any of you not wanting to be reminded!)

In addition to my collection (of over 400 scripts) I am more than happy to WRITE on REQUEST. So if you need a script urgently that is not in my collection, drop me a line and I will write it for you!

Customer feedback:

'I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful assembly! We just performed and it was a big hit with parents and staff alike!' - this comment received from lovely teacher at Kew Prep School, many thanks! (Plants Assembly, KSI). 

'I downloaded from website. Love, love, love it thank you so much! I highly recommend Sue's Plays class assemblies. They are clever, witty and the children have so much fun performing them! Sue wrote a fabulous class assembly to meet my specific title and got it to me within one day. I was overwhelmed with Sue's quick response and attention to detail. Thank you, Phil

Follow up to performance: Just wanted to let you know that we performed our class assembly today and was a real hit! We rehearsed all day yesterday and this morning and the kids loved it! They were fabulous and the audience's reaction was fantastic. The children had fun, laughed and danced and were brilliant. Thank you again!Phil

A panto with a difference! On being requested to extend my Snow White and the 22 Dwarfs to accomodate a year group of 60, I thought why not team those 22 dwarfs up with 22 elves - with a few reindeer (and Father Christmas) thrown in?! Performance time will be around 45 mins plus - so a lot longer than my other plays BUT Snow White and the 22 Dwarfs will remain available in its original 20 min version, for those preferring the shorter option.

plus special Christmas 'package'.

FIRST, *TWO VERY IMPORTANT THINGS TO SAY TO ALL MY CUSTOMERS

1. If you place an order and you do not receive the script as email attachment from me WITHIN 24 HOURS, please do not hesitate to contact me - do not wait any longer. I pride myself on very quick service as I know how tight teacher schedules are time wise. My email address is sue@plays-r-ussell.com - always happy to help. You can place an order via Paypal or credit card - in the case of the latter, the instruction is 'Check out as Guest' which takes you to the next page where you can make a card payment. I am sorry this instruction is so 'obscure' - paypal have just updated and this is one of the consequences. We are trying to get it reworded but I apologise for any confusion in the meantime - case of financial/software people not begin great communicators, I guess!

2. If you experience any difficulty in ordering the script, again - contact me immediately. Technology does not always 'co-operate' and I know just how frustrating it can be if you need a script NOW! Whilst ordering directly off the website is by far the easiest and quickest option, there are other options if this proves 'overly problematic' - so please do not give up

3. Word version of script is available on purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. I do not make latter a compulsory part of purchase process but it is much appreciated when customers show their appreciation of my scripts in this way, either at time of purchase of later.

My collection of scripts is now over 400! So if you are unable to find the one you are after, please drop me a line - sue@plays-r-ussell.com Might be quicker than wading through the website!

I am happy to write on request - so if there are any scripts missing from my collection, please let me know. I have to date managed to write scripts well within the week - I think my record is within a day! Latest requested script, Jonah and the Whale, thank you to Sarah for this: "It looks fantastic can't wait to start work on it tomorrow. Thanks for all your hard work"

*Feedback from Customers:

Look forward to using another one of your scripts next year! Puja Bhayani

14.10.14 “It’s been five years of amazing assemblies thanks to your great play scripts. We will keep coming back as we’ve always appreciated the wide variety of topics covered plus your willingness Sue to adapt or even create bespoke assemblies on new curriculum topics as required. You even supply the word version on request which is great for adapting to suit more/less cast or local specifics. I can’t thank you or recommend your service enough. Jeff and Lorna, Geneva, Switzerland”

29.1.2015 (Victorian Assembly)'On that note I want to say your scripts are brilliant! Last year (during my NQT) I did the henry viii assembly - using your script and parents, staff and other children found it hilarious - apparently it was the best assembly that class had ever performed and received constant praise from staff and children! Thanks! No doubt this one will have a similar effect!'

(12.1014):AMAZING! Exactly what I needed. Well written, funny and great suggestions for music. Im using this with a class of 31 and the suggestions for adaptations were spot on. The class love it and are super excited for our assembly on the 30th of October. Thank you

Re: "Ancient China Class Play/Assembly": This looks great! I can't wait to try it with my grade 3s after we've learned about ancient China!

Ancient Greek Assembly "I am just writing to you to thank you for a fabulous script. Today was the day of our performance to the parents and other children of the school. It was a huge success! All attending (hall was jam packed) enjoyed the show as it was funny, witty and informative. In particular the choice of music added to the enjoyment".  Thanks Gitta - Much appreciated. 

Victoria. p.s I have been meaning to email feedback from last year when I bought 'The Greeks'.  The children loved it and found it very funny! They especially liked Homer eating the doughnut.  I got one of children to eat a real one and the jam squirted out all over his shirt with brilliant comedy timing! I think the play will be something that my pupils and I will always fondly remember!"

Victorian Assembly "I know this production will go well as my class are loving their Victorians topic work and this assembly enhances and reinforces all that they are currently learning.   Using your scripts saves me so much time and is a god-send when we also have to organise all that goes on towards Christmas in school!  (I’m sure you are very aware!) Thanks again Sue for all of your help.  Your personal emails are lovely and so unique in today's internet sales market! Thanks again and no doubt I will be back for my third script soon!!  Janie." French Vive La France Assembly "We are doing a unit on France and my children are loving the play script!!!  The music/information/etc is just so interesting/apt for the scenes. It's cleverly written - so much information in a nutshell. It certainly makes our lives much easier. I really wish you taught at my school. Komala." Roman/Celt Assembly "Thanks very much for the copy of your Roman play. I’m new to the juniors although I have been teaching a long time so this has been a life saver. Just sending you a message to say that my class performed your Roman and Celtic assembly today and it was a triumph, so a huge thanks once again. Melanie." like these keep me writing!

Finally, I would like to repeat. If you have not received the script(s) you have ordered within 24 hours of placing the order, PLEASE be sure to contact me IMMEDIATELY. On receipt of order, scripts are sent out straight away as email attachments and there should be NO DELAY. Don’t hesitate to contact me – always happy to help.  

Enjoy!   Sue
