The newest title in our children's activity series, Putting on a Play, provides everything dramatic kids need to know to put on a play all by themselves--from acting, writing a script, and developing characters, to props, costumes, and makeup. Kids will have everything they need to get their acts together!
The book includes six thematic plays--Pirate, Princess, Explorer, Circus, Cowboy and Cowgirl--and ideas for holiday plays. Each play includes different endings and ideas for costumes, characters, sets, music, and more, plus tips like these:

There's no need for a lot of fancy equipment; it only takes imagination, a few friends, and a sense of adventure!
