The Missing Easter Eggs
The Missing Easter Eggs has a cast of 6 – Feisty Pheasant, Clumsy Chicken, Tactless Turkey, Grumpy Goose, Daft Duck and the Easter Bunny. (These characters will be appearing in future scripts written by Sue Russell, associated with the SEAL/PSHE scheme of work).
This is a very short play – about 5 minutes duration. If a longer script is required, there are two others available, from which characters, jokes and music could be added onto this script.
This ‘mini assembly’ would be ideally suited to PSHE work centred around ‘new beginnings’.
The Easter Egg Hunt with music suggestions and available in 2 versions: cast of 10 or 30 (or any number in between); duration 10 – 20 minutes.
The Easter Egg Hunt Key Stage I – Cast of 30, duration around 10 minutes
NB Please Note: I was asked by a teacher to write a second New Year script – he had used the New Year Resolutions script last year – and, as I had just been looking at my Easter scripts for next year (2013) I decided to use the ‘farmyard fowl’ characters as they were so much fun to work with. Having looked at two of the Easter scripts – Easter Egg Hunt (KSII) and The Missing Easter Eggs, I decided to take extracts from both to create this one script for the New Year – the theme of ‘eggs’ tied in nicely with ‘new beginnings/fresh starts’. I mention this as I would not want anyone to purchase these two aforementioned Easter scripts, having bought the New Year Assembly, as you will find they are remarkably similar! If you have bought the New Year Assembly and want a different script for Easter (other than the Easter Story which is based on the Bible story) – please let me know.
The Missing Easter Eggs Sample Text:
Feisty Pheasant: Good morning! And welcome to our assembly on
Whole cast: (Shouting together) Easter eggs!
Feisty Pheasant: So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to my fellow fowl!
(Each bird steps forward in turn, announcing his/her name with appropriate bow or curtsey)
Clumsy Chicken: (Tripping) Oops! I’m Clumsy Chicken!
Tactless Turkey: As if they couldn’t have worked that one out for themselves!
Feisty Pheasant: (Coughing) Ahem! Stick to the script please! And you are?
Tactless Turkey: Tactless Turkey!
Feisty Pheasant: (Aside) Figures! (Prodding Grumpy Goose) And you?
Grumpy Goose: (Grumbling) Grumpy Goose! There had better be a good reason for interrupting my afternoon nap! Always someone making a song and dance about something around here! (Tutting) Talk about no peace for the wicked!
Daft Duck: Now, now, Grumpy Goose! You know what we’ve all told you about trying to be cheerful at least once a day!
Tactless Turkey: Huh! It sure comes easier to some than to others! Course, having a name like Daft Duck is always going to help!
Daft Duck: And very proud of it I am, too! There are far worse things to be called in life, I can assure you!
Feisty Pheasant: That’s the spirit! Oh! And I suppose I should introduce myself. I’m Feisty Pheasant! You could say – the life and soul of the party!
Grumpy Goose: Well, that wouldn’t be saying much!
