Classics for Kids: Four Plays Adapted from the Books of Don Freeman

by Wysteria Edwards

About the Play

Performable collection of 4 short plays for young audiences. 10-15 minutes each. Casts range from 3-7 performers (6-24 performers possible, with some gender flexibility). Suitable for elementary school and older.

All of the plays in the anthology may be performed on their own (see their individual listings), or they may be performed collectively in any order or combination.

Plays include A Pocket for Corduroy; Dandelion; Manuelo, the Playing Mantis; and Mop Top.


A boy with a "mop" of hair, a lion who wants to get all dressed up, a praying mantis with a passion for music and the iconic teddy bear, Corduroy, are just a few of the characters who live in the magical and welcoming worlds that Don Freeman created for children and for the child in all of us.
