What's even better than reading a Robert Munsch story out loud? Acting in one!

In this new collection of plays based on the stories of Robert Munsch, experienced playwright Irene N. Watts has adapted eight of his bestloved tales for the stage, classroom or backyard! Complemented by funny, energetic illustrations, including those of long-time Munsch collaborator Michael Martchenko, each story is presented in an accessible theatrical format, making it easy for children to act out their own versions of the adventures of Angela, Elizabeth, Mortimer and more.

These lively, interactive adaptations include suggestions to encourage audience participation, as well as casting ideas that can involve a whole class. Innovative, uncomplicated (and inexpensive!) ideas for props and costumes are also here. The stories included are:

  • 50 Below Zero
  • Angela's Airplane
  • Millicent and The Wind
  • Mortimer
  • Mud Puddle
  • Murmel, Murmel, Murmel
  • The Paper Bag Princess
