Neighborhood Play

Dear Highlights,
I love doing plays. I would like to start a play in my neighborhood, but I don’t know how. Any suggestions?
Kateri, Washington

What a fun idea! You might start by talking to your neighborhood friends to see who would like to participate. Remember, not everyone needs to be an actor. A successful play also needs people to make sets, design costumes, coordinate music or special effects, and so on. Let people choose how they’d like to be involved.

Next, work together to choose a story or script to perform. Some plays have a detailed script. Others have only a loose story, which allows the actors to make things up as they go along. You can also discuss where and when you’ll rehearse. You might wish to talk to your parents about your idea too. They may have some good suggestions for you.
