Hi. My name's Sue Russell, the author of all the plays on this site.
Welcome to my website!
My home page is here:www.plays-r-ussell.com I hope you find what you're looking for at www.plays-r-ussell.com
"Thank you for all the fun we've had and the countless hours of work you have saved me". (See *other comments, further down this page) This is a comment I regularly receive and it sums up, for me, the service I try to offer teachers and their classes all over the world.
Recent email from customer re: "Ancient Greek Myths Guided Reading, Group Readers or Readers Theater":Thank you! My students LOVED it and are still talking about it a year later, they want to know if they can do it again!
Most recent addition to website - updated version of Eurovision Song Contest Assembly - guaranteed great music and entertainment!
Other recent additions: Robots Assembly, as requested; and World War One Assembly - 1914 will be commemorating the start of the First World War so I thought I'd make a start on some scripts - guided readers to follow.
Thank you to those of you who bought my Assembly for Red Nose Day - March 15th - in aid of Comic Relief. 100% of the proceeds went to Comic Relief and, added to the amount I raised 'wearing a red tutu' all week (in and out of my Zumba classes - see www.zumba-around-winchester.com for the pics!) I raised £450!

Many thanks for another fantastic piece that I can share with my pupils!
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!"
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.
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!
