Cast of 30 (easily adapted up or down)

This number can of course be adapted to a smaller or larger group of children – it could even be taken up to a whole year group size. This script was written following a teacher’s request and so is based on her book choices. Other books can of course be used and the number of characters increased or decreased. It is a ‘moveable feast’ – as are all the best parties!

Duration: Around 20 minutes not including music suggestions

Sample Text:

Narrator:         Thank you! Of course there is so much to celebrate in the world of literature! All those wonderful inspirational characters!

(Enter Horrid Henry, scowling)

Horrid Henry:  Dah! I suppose you’ve got a whole line up of squeaky clean characters for us today? Just got one word to say to that – BORING!

Narrator:         And you are? (Pauses) Oh, don’t tell me – Horrid Henry!

                        (Aside to Audience) A shame he had to start us off today! Definitely not one of our more likeable characters!

                        (To Henry) Now, if you don’t mind, I do have a lot of other, shall we say ‘more wholesome characters’ to introduce!

Horrid Henry:  (Scowling) Please yourself!

(Exit Horrid Henry, giving exaggerated ‘yawns’)

Narrator:         (To Audience) Oh dear! Sorry about that! Let’s see if we can ‘raise the bar’ a little!

(Peter Pan ‘flies’ onto the stage)

Narrator:         Ah! Peter Pan! How nice to meet you!

Peter Pan:       The pleasure is all mine!

(Enter Wendy and Tinkerbell)

Peter Pan:       I’d like you to meet

Wendy:            (Curtseying) Wendy (looking at Peter Pan adoringly) Darling!

Tinkerbell:       (Trying to ‘swoosh’ Wendy out of the way) And Peter’s favourite, Tinkerbell!

Peter Pan:       (Laughing) Now, now Tinkerbell! We have spoken about that jealousy thing!

(Tinkerbell pulls a face, sulking)

Wendy:            Oh but she’s so adorable! You can’t be cross with her for long!

(Enter Horrid Henry)

Horrid Henry:  What was I saying about those yukky sugary-sweet characters? Time to introduce some more interesting ones!

(Horrid Henry beckons to Captain Cook and Crocodile)

(Enter Captain Cook and Crocodile, snapping at Narrator’s heels)

Narrator:         (Angrily) Who let this beast on here? (Glaring at Horrid Henry) Oh I might have known you’d be up to no good!
