American Girl Magazine has two free scripts:
"Thirteen" -- Friday the Thirteenth isn't really unlucky. Or is it?
6 girl actors (but could be changed from a slumber to a science club telescope party so boys could be in the cast) Requires a cake (could be pantomimed or in a box), backpacks or bedrolls (can be pantomimed), an umbrella, a phone (can be pantomimed) and a table and chairs or a couch.
Issue: Jan-Feb 2001 Vol. 9, Issue 1, page 27
"Annoying Annabelle" Now is their chance to get back at at that snobby Annabelle! Requires a table, tablecloth, tea set, nice clothing, a stringed instrument, plate of cookies. Annabelle wears a dress that ties in the back.
5 females playing two children, one teen, two adult, but the two children and the adults could be males.
Issue: Jul/Aug 1995, Vol. 3, Issue 4, following page 38.
Make scenes from storiesGo to your favorite books to find scenes that can be transformed into theater.
You can also take comic collection books like Calvin & Hobbes, Cul de Sac, and Zits (available in book collections) and convert them into scripts.
The Monty Python link below is a gold mine but they print-out with lots of wasted space. The links to my favorites have been formatted to fill the page.
