Chinese New Year School Assembly
To place an order, please scroll down to the bottom of this page.
Cast of 30 – easily as adaptable up or down
Who would have thought that 12 animals could be so different? But all they have connecting them is, after all, just one thing – Chinese astrology! Meet all 12 and make your own mind up whether you were born into the correct year!
This script was written in 2009 which obviously impacts on years/dates chosen. The animal characteristics stay the same over the course of time but some the years/dates may need 'tweaking' to bring up to date.
Sheep: How kind! (Pauses) Ooh, I'm so sorry. Did I speak out of turn?
Pig: Not at all, sweet sheep! It's nice to know I'm not the only peace-loving animal around here.
Rooster: Meaning precisely what, may I ask?
Ox: Meaning that some of you are far too quick to take offence! You should stay calm, like me!
Tiger: Whilst the rest of us die of boredom!
Dragon: Oh please! Enough of this common bickering! It really is so tiresome!
Monkey: I agree! Think of all the energy you are wasting, when you could be doing something productive – like inventing things?
Rat: Or solving problems – like, how are we going to get through the rest of this assembly without all of us falling out?
