Welcome to Plays4Kidz
The site for perfect drama and music resources for children.
You want plays for all times of the year? I've got just what you want: plays with songs and music, legends like The Ballad of St. George or Robin Hood, historical plays about real Victorians such as Thomas Moon or Sir Robert Ropner (a Victorian shipbuilder and philanthropist), an original vibrant version of Joseph and his Multi-coloured Coat (no copyright fees) or a modern musical about life on the streets - Too Many Apples.
Every play and song on this site has been written by me specifically for young people to perform. All of them are suitable for schools, drama classes, young theatre groups. To see a full list click here.
Maybe you want resources for assemblies? I can give you packages for Juniors or Infants. There are materials covering the Great Fire of London, Seaside Holidays in the 1950s, Teeth and others. To see the full list, click here.
New for 2013 is my play/assembly package to illustrate the Jewish festival of Purim. If you would like to learn more, click here.

|A play about the festival of Purim|
The Jewish Festival of Purim commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in Ancient Persia. This play tells the story of Esther, the king Ahasuerus and Haman. An ideal vehicle for anyone teaching about festivals of religions other than Christia
|The Ballad of Robin Hood |
The legend of Robin Hood and his brave band brought to life for 9,10 & 11 year old children to perform.6 great songs including one each for Robin, Little John and the evil Sheriff.
|The Ballad of St George |
A rousing drama for Key Stage 2 children telling the story of Bold Saint George. Written in rhyming verse, with smashing songs to help the story along, a monstrous dragon and a beautiful princess and a happy ending, what could be better?
|The Great Fire Of London|
A play package for children aged 7 to 11. History explorers travel to 17th century London to find out the facts of the Great Fire. Was it the baker or French agent provocateurs who started the fire?
|THE STORY OF JOSEPH|
A completely new version of the Old Testament story written especially for 9 to 11 year olds. With nine totally new singable songs too.
|Thomas Moon's Last Crime - Victorian crime and punishment|
A play about Victorian law and order. Two 'criminals' are sentenced to transportation for stealing 2 chickens and 6 eggs! Based on real people and real events, this is an excellent way of introducing children to one aspect of Victorian life.
