My most recent class assembly was based on Theseus and the Minotaur (with a twist).
We had covered this story during our topic of myths.
The children LOVED it. I wrote this play script based on the myth however we added a little twist. The minotaur is known to be a FEARSOME, UGLY creature, but in our story he turns out to be nice once people get to know him. Moral: Don’t judge a book by its cover.
The play script is editable to ensure that there is enough lines for the children in your class. I have 25 and there is 25 parts. However, it is an easy script to edit and adapt.
To tie it all together, we sang ‘Eye of the Tiger’ in the middle of the performance which went down a treat with the parents and the school.
This resource contains the script ONLY and in total the play lasted about 15 minutes.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did and please let me know how you and your class got on.
