TO BE OR NOT TO BE is a collection of seven original preteen one act kids play scripts written and produced in schools by theatre professionals from Creative Educational Systems. Most of the plays have a playing time of 20-45 minutes -- perfect for a school assembly program or a children's theatre production. And each script has been successfully performed by young people.

The plays are accompanied by curriculum suggestions in the areas of language arts, social studies, mathematics, science, art, music and dance. This provides the educator with an incredibly useful template for connecting the material in each play to the students' curriculum.

Each play is also followed by production notes on staging, style, costumes, sets and lighting, properties and sound and music. Every idea you need to create a successful production is right here.

Audiences of young people watching a live play will:

Children will inevitably identify with one character or another and vicariously experience the emotional progression of that character until the end of the play -- and sometimes, long after.

Young people participating in the production of a play will experience all of the above, plus:

  • the internal motivations of the character they portray,
  • the self-discipline needed to perform successfully in front of an audience,
  • the dynamics of interpersonal relationships crucial to the opening of a show,
  • the process of going over the same thing time and again in the pursuit of excellence, AND
  • instant feedback as to how well they performed the tasks to which they committed themselves.
The plays include:

When he receives a mechanical nightingale which is encrusted with jewels, he and his court forget all about the real Nightingale who escapes the court and disappears.
