    These are brilliant! I use them for a grouped guiding reading activity and they are perfect! I love that you have junior, middle and upper.

      Thank you for your lovely feedback, Jude! It was a big job, but definitely worth the effort, I think! I hope your students really enjoy the scripts.

      Kind regards,

    But I was wondering if there was any comprehension activities that went with these?

      Hi Carly,

      Thank you for the positive feedback. We haven’t created any specific comprehension activities for these as yet. However, we do have some fantastic generic comprehension resources that could be used with the scripts; these can be downloaded here:

  • These are great. Do you have any marking guides for drama that align with the Australian curriculum?

      Hi Ashleigh,

      Thank you for your positive feedback. We don’t tend to create marking guides; primarily because we are unable to cater to the wide range of assessment and reporting procedures used across schools. I hope you and your students can still benefit from using our wonderful range of Readers’ Theatre scripts.

      Kind regards,

    These are great! But I have noticed that in ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ there are missing ‘Fs’ in words? I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed this.

    Example: Line 3 Little BGG characters “I can see a lovely green ield in the distance, over the bridge.” – missing the F in field
    Line 7 Little BGG character “It is the Little Billy Goat Gru…..” – missing the ff in Gruff?

    Is this just my computer?
