I always tell teachers, “I only paint half the canvas, I expect the kids to be creative and paint the other half!”
Yes, it is VERY important that you have fun with the scripts. I have seen kids do Star Wars music every time Lady Macbeth appeared on stage and even dance to Thriller in a production of Romeo & Juliet! Just the other day, a lady from the Philippines wrote music to be sung in Midsummer – AWESOME!
Just do me a favor, let me know! I love to share ideas with other teachers and sometimes I even modify my plays to include your ideas!
