Fairy Tale Performance Adaptation Name______________________________
Objective: Students will adapt a classic fairy tale into a modern day telling with groups of 4 to 5 students. Students will use their acquired understanding of performance and stage techniques to effectively tell the story on stage for an audience.
Day 1-2-Brainstorming: Decide with your group which fairy tale you’d like to adapt. Once you have found a story you would like to adapt, you must place the story in modern times (high school, soap opera etc…) and decide on how they will tell the story in a new way. They may start hand writing their script once they have decided on a concept together.
Day 3-4- Scripts: Finish writing scripts in the computer lab, if you finish early you may start memorizing lines.
Day 6-Roses before Thorns
