Original and adapted scripts written for children by Dazzle are available for school shows, assemblies or workshops. All scripts are in Microsoft Word so it is easy to take out or add in an extra character, change lines or add in notes as required. All of these scripts are free! I would love to know how you get on!

West Side Jungle
‘West Side Jungle’ is an original and wacky Dazzle script inspired by the characters and story of West Side Story but with wild animals! It tells the story of a zebra and a tiger whose eyes meet across a crowded watering hole. They fall in love and want to get married. This is not the circle of life and the tigers are not happy. The kings of the jungle, the lions, decide that for one night only the hunting will stop and all the animals will celebrate their marriage with a dance! But what will happen when the party is over??
14 speaking roles but lots of opportunities for extra animals, cubs, dancers
Hansel & Gretel KS1/KS2
Rhyming narrators, wolves, a nasty witch and fairy tale characters! This is an original take on the classic folk tale, adding characters, and more acting opportunities, such as Goldilocks, Cinderella and Jack, as the brother and sister journey through the woods. This was written for a set number of children attending a theatre workshop but why not write in more characters such as Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Huntsman, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots or a couple of Princes?
An option is to have three sets of Hansel & Gretels who get older during the 3 acts and three sets of narrators.
