THEATRE4KIDS: PLAYS AND PROCESS
While a GATE teacher, Virginia Pulitzer developed a K-8 theatre program for her gifted students and also the general school population. While perusing children's plays, she became frustrated with the quality of available scripts and decided to write her own. The school provided no extra money for the program so she had to find creative ways to handle all aspects of play production. She solicited parent and colleague help, asked local businesses for donations or to buy program ads, and asked local media for free publicity. Encouraged by her colleagues, she created THEATRE4KIDS: PLAYS AND PROCESS, a resource for teachers, amateur directors, parents or children's group leaders. It provides step by step instruction on how to produce a children's play with little or no budget and little or no previous theater experience. An anthology of Pulitzer's 15 original, royalty free, audience-tested reproducible plays are included in the manual.
