Shakespeare’s Got Talent!

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 8F, 8M, 13 M or F; can be 13 players with doubling
Time: About 40 minutes

Shakespeare’s characters come to life in this TV talent show parody! Hosted by Puck, the mischievous fairy from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the Fool, Shakespeare’s characters are silly and humorous when seen from a contemporary perspective. The judges, King Duncan, Romeo, and Portia (Brutus’ wife) are even funnier. Hamlet mocks and threatens the judges, but is challenged to a pillow fight by Laertes. Macbeth’s three witches refuse to be voted off stage and predict that Macbeth will become a judge. Soon after, King Duncan disappears. MacDuff wants to fight Macbeth to the death with rubber chickens. None of the contestants are able to finish their acts, so the hosts and judges do their own dance act and vote themselves the winners. A fun and entertaining way to introduce students to Shakespeare. Easy to perform in the classroom or on stage. One scene, minimal costumes and props.
