Clip to ScrapBook #2

Can you have them develop their own play using creative drama? The children take on the roles in the story and develop their own dialog. There are tons of books on creative dramatics techniques.

You might also look for some Wright Group books. Many of them have play scripts.

You can also adopt/rewrite a story with lots of dialog into a script, use one or several narrators to describe what can't be included in the dialog. Try stories like Bremen Town Musicians, Chicken Little, or anything with lots of characters.
