If you're including the whole class...

I suggest you read the entire script aloud first time through. Then talk about the "story," discuss character traits, practice visualizing the setting, etc. Let small groups practice all the parts for a day or two. After that, students choose parts and rehearse for a couple of more days. Finally, they "perform" for their classmates and often other classrooms as well. You can google scripts, look at the archived threads here or purchase reader's theater collections at your local teacher store. I have a couple I like from Scholastic. I have a group working on Spiderella right now and they are having a ball.
