Fairy Tales Revisited - Retellings, Twisted Tales

Here are some twists on popular Fairy Tales for child actors. These scripts have a lot of family friendly fun included:

"Beauty IS a Beast" - This play is more like a family friendly version of Taming of the Shrew than Beauty and the Beast.

"The Gingerbread Girl" - A sequel to the Gingerbread Man story but with a hint of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein mixed in.

"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" - a kid friendly twist on the tale of Sir Gawain and the Loathly Lady

"Jackie and the Potato Stalk"
A short children's play with a cowboy western twist on the story of Jack and the Beanstalk

"The Pirate and the Princess" is a twist on the tale the Prince and the Pauper. It is about Bones the Pirate Girl who is tired of life at sea and a princess named Fuchsia who dreams of adventure. They decide to switch places but find out being a pirate and a princess isn't all fun and games.

The Forgotten Grimm Brother Fairy Tale of "The Ungrateful Dwarf" 
(The Story of Snow White and Rose Red) 

"Snow White and the 7 Kachus" This Freedrama play features our website mascot the Kachu! Kachus can been found all over the website... on the Freedrama title... acting out some of the plays in pictures... but now you can see these cute little birds in action in a quest for their favorite food... cupcakes! They make friends with Snow White (who makes the best cupcakes ever) and help save her from the evil Queen who wants to stop her from making these treats which give her a tummy ache.
