Drama club

I have recently started a drama club for grades 4-8 at a private school. I could give you many tips on putting on a production, but first, what ages do you think you are looking at? The entire elementary school, or just the older kids?

Were you thinking of putting on a production, or simply doing little skits here and there? If you are considering a performance, there are many great websites with child-friendly scripts. One example that I have used is by Kathryn Schultz Miller. I have bought scripts to three of her plays - Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland (currently in production.) The scripts are easy to perform and very simple. The kids love it.. Each year we have about 30 kids try out (the school only has 200). Fourth graders and fifth graders could be the stars with no problems.
Her website is located at

If that is the route you are going to take, I'd be glad to give you more advice about scheduling, set design, and all that.
