Ten Short Plays for children ages 5 to 9. These whimsical vignettes will surely keep your little ones entertained and teach them valuable lessons they'll treasure for life. We follow a plucky little boy named Ben as he learns how to appreciate grandparents; how to respect his parents; what being a friend really means; how to be responsible and care for his pets; good citizenship, caring relationships and kindness. Great, simple fun, these delightful plays are easy to stage in either a classroom or auditorium. Rather than demanding realistic sets, costumes, make-up, and props, they invite the imagination of the actors and the audience. A step ladder becomes a tree. An actor who "oinks" becomes a pig. A few whiskers painted on a face creates a dog or a cat! Ben Boy and his friends bring the fun and excitement of theatre to everyone involved!
