Frankenstreudel's Lemon Fresh Laboratory of Horrors
This two act play has great lines, lots of action, suspense, and unexpected twists. The "charming grossness" should really appeal to 1st to 5th graders. The scenes are played for humor not gore, still some children might find it scary. The primary characters are all played by young children who chose the script because they found the script hilarious.
A little of the story: When straight-A-student 7-year-old Alexis applies for a job in the science lab of Dr. Frankenstreudel, chase scenes and funny things happen. Alexis frees other children from Frankenstreudelís cages, and they hide pretending to be just more body parts on a shelf. While escaping from the lab two of the children fall into a grave, and while one old zombie tries to help them out other zombies try to eat them! Of course being polite and respectful save them, and they go back to the laboratory to rescue the other children - But not before the Zombies sing and dance in the graveyard! There is a happy ending.
