Pandora's Socks

I really loved "Pandora's Socks." We just produced it last Monday and the parents raved. It was the perfect length and perfect amount of humor and interest. I cannot do musicals so these (non-musical) plays are amazing.

Pandora's Socks

I did it with my summer school kids (40 of 'em.) Every student that wanted a part, got at least one. We split up the Pandora's.... 2 of 'em... the 'bigs' were in charge of costumes and scenery... and they had parts.



The kids had more fun than any of them want to own up to. Even the "big" kids got into it. The little kids just loved performing and the parents loved it.

So much fun and hilarity

I love this script. I had to explain the jokes to the 6th graders, but they enjoyed them when they understood them. The adults loved them. This script was witty and fun. I added a narration of an overview of the myths (maybe Badwolf Press could add a brief overview of the original myth as a section in the teachers manual) so that the kids and audience understand the myth. I used a cast of 24, and split the script into scenes. Some of the groups got 2 scenes. I had 5 Pandoras, and they just wore a sign around their neck so the audience wasn't confused.
