FREE MISC. LESSON - “Script: The One Item Mystery Dinner Theater Drama”
by Kathleen Applebee
8th - 12th Grade
Use as a Reader's Theater or fundraiser for your class or group. Comes complete with script and directors notes.
The audience gathers for what they think will be a memorial service for the missionary fondly known as Uncle Buck but ends up trying to save Sadie McCrady (Buck’s niece) and themselves from being swindled by the unscrupulous pawnbroker Harry Sneed. Not only must they solve what ONE ITEM Sadie should choose for her inheritance but they must uncover who the impostor is.
Plot is broken into 3 scenes. One before dinner, one between dinner and dessert and the last after dessert is served. A sample ending is provided in the event this is produced as a fund raiser for missions. It can be adapted for any occasion as best suits the individual situation.
