I write plays based on myths, fables, and fairytales for a wonderful magazine called Storyworks.
Published by Scholastic, Storyworks is read by over one million kids in their 3rd, 4th, and
5th grade classrooms. These plays are called Reader's Theater because they can be read aloud in
a classroom, and they include narrators who connect the parts of the story.
Some of the students’ favorite plays are:
Anansi the Spider, a West African folktale
The Tortoise and the Hare, an Aesop fable
Yeh Shen, a Chinese Cinderella story
The Emperor's New Clothes, a classic fariy tale
Below are some of my Storyworks plays.
