Subject:   Middle School Drama

My suggestions for the age group would be The Glass Menagerie, The 
Miracle Worker, The Petrified Forest, Inherit the Wind, and (at the 
upper age) Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. My stepdaughters are 11 & 15, & 
read on this level, though they would need an intro regarding the 
difference between prose & the more sparse play script. I'd include a 
lesson on stage sets: What does the set have to show us since the script 
doesn't contain descriptive passages.
