Some shorter plays for youth groups, young people and children


The Perfect Princess is a short one-act play lasting about twenty minutes, which is suitable for a junior group to do. Each character is specific so there is opportunity for some good acting. Many of the parts could be played by either sex – for example, the Prince and Gerald could be played by females (in the principal boy tradition) or by males. Some of the princesses could be played by males, which can make them funnier.
The set can be a plain curtain set with a couple of chairs (thrones) for the Prince, or King and Queen to sit on.
