Fractured Fairy Tales for Student Actors
A collection of contemporary fairy tale scenes

By Jan Peterson Ewen


Cover of
These royalty-free scenes are laugh-out-loud funny and clever, to boot!  Based on familiar nursery rhyme characters, Ewen put a comedic spin on their situations.  For instance, ESPN newscasters are interviewing Jack out at the track where he does his training for candlestick jumping.  The 20 scenes are evenly split between five-minute scenes for 2 to 3 characters and ten-minute scenes for 5 to 20 characters.  Most of the characters may be played by either gender, and several scenes can be expanded to accommodate an entire classroom.  Unlike most scene books, the table of contents even indicates the cast size and genders along with a one-line summary.  Easy to use and fun for all ages, you’ll love the colorful characters and creative situations in these short, hysterical scenes.
