-- Every student deserves good theatre and that is why Youth Theatre Press has created School-Plays.com. From award winning playwrights, to pioneers in youth theatre, School-Plays.com offers a diverse collection of plays specially designed for middle and junior high schools.
Educational theatre does more than entertain. It has the power to bring American history alive with Charlotte Chorpenning's "Lincoln's Secret Messenger" and it has the capability of rediscovering classic literature such as Muriel Browne's adaptation of Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist."
School-Plays.com is proud to publish these noteworthy plays as an alternative to corporatized musical fairy tales. Students should be exposed to good playwrighting techniques and solid dramatic principals and each of the plays have been chosen with that in mind.
In these shaky economical times when school districts are cutting theatre educational budgets, School-Plays.com believes that finances should not be a factor in bringing good theatre to students. That is why School-Plays.com has created a unique publishing structure where no expensive cast copies have to be purchased or additional royalties have to be paid. All the plays can be performed for a one time low fee.
