ACTIVITY 37: DRAMA: Roleplay and improvisation Play with one or more of the alternatives below. You can keep the same characters you explored in the tableaux or swap characters with your friends!

The Werewolf and Frankenstein argue about the plant and the dog event. Each one defends his point of view and tries to make the other understand the situation. The Werewolf suggests different things Frankenstein could do to feed his pet.

Dracula asks The Mummy on a date. He suggests different possibilities but The Mummy does not like any of them. Finally she suggests something he likes and they agree. Arrange day, time, etc.

Dr. D’Vil needs advice. Dr. D’Vil has problems with her skin, so she asks the Mummy for advice. The Mummy suggests different creams, lotions and home-made remedies she could use. Dr. D’Vil is very grateful.

The monsters and Dr. D’Vil start their own business. The monsters and Dr. D’Vil have turned the lab into a SPA. They all get together to discuss how they should advertise it to get more customers.

Franky wants to ask Dr. D’Vil out, but he does not know how to and he does not dare either. All the other monsters give him advice and suggest different things he could do to ask her on a date and win her heart.

WOLFMAN

MUMMY

Being good, being kind

Being good, being kind

I’ve never felt that way

Could be the thing for me

If people try to reach me

I just need a new outfit

I simply growl at them.

And some pink blush on my cheeks!

EVERYONE (chorus) Being good, being nice

DRACULA

That might sound like a plan

Come on now, my friend

Just cause you’ve never tried it

don’t cry and be yourself

Doesn’t mean it won’t work out.

I am feeling hungry

Give it up right now!

I need blood and it’s from them!

EVERYONE

CHORUS:

What if we gave it a try...

Still I wonder how it’d be

WOLFMAN

FRANKY

My mamma always tried

They’ve created me to scare

To show me the right path

that’s my talent’ that’s my gig!

But that was nothing but a lie

What on Earth are you expecting?

Nobody looks inside

For me to just sit down and knit?

My name is ............................................................................................................................. PLAY:

I AM A WOMAN, I AM A MONSTER

Long ago I was a princess
 The most gorgeous of them all 
But my sister had me killed 
In her will to reach the throne She stole my crown and jewels
 And she wrapped me in these rags
 But she didn’t quite succeed
 She could never be like me 
 I’m a woman, I’m a monster
 Through the ages I got stronger 
I’m the image of success
 Nobody can fill my shoes 
I’m the princess That was then and this is now
 My sister’s plan got carried out
 But my soul was too strong
 For her to tear up and destroy 
And although she thought she’d won 
From the ashes I’m reborn 
Here I am, ready to shine 
I am back for what is mine (I´m a woman, I´m a .....)

But one day somebody came Just a tiny, hungry sprout Which grew into this plant Thanks to all my care and love. And you made everything change! Just to have a friend It turned my life around Please don’t wither up right now! There’s no Franky without you And I’m sure you love me too Don’t give up on me my pal! My baby, my baby plant. Just a drop was enough When you were a baby But now your stem is weak And more blood is what you need. I don’t know if I have more And my finger’s really sore But for you I’d give my soul More than you will ever know. And you made everything change! Just to have a friend It turned my life around Please don’t wither up right now! There’s no Franky without you And I’m sure you love me too Don’t give up on me my pal! My baby, my little plant.

How to enjoy our plays? SCHOOL OUTING TO THE THEATRE Booking To book your seats please contact your local sales representative or our main office. It is important to take into account that theatres have a limited seating capacity; your seats are guaranteed only if you buy your tickets in advance. In most cities we also offer early-bird discounts. When contacting your local sales representative please have the following data at hand: the plays you wish to attend, the number of seats you are booking for both students and teachers. It is necessary to leave the phone number and e-mail of the person in charge of the outing. USEFUL TIPS AND INFORMATION Tickets Collect the money for the tickets from the children well in advance. Our experience has shown that some children forget to bring the money and the authorizations on the day of the outing. To avoid this we recommend using deadlines. 1 teacher/adult free every 10 students. Arrival time We suggest arriving between 15 and 25 minutes before starting time to allow enough time for parking, lining up and so on. A maximum tolerance of 10 minutes may be granted if the rest of the audience agrees to wait. As you may share the venue with different schools, it is important to start our shows on time. Length of the plays Between 50 and 60 minutes, depending on the play BAP AT YOUR SCHOOL Transforming your school into a magical stage “At Your School� is a simple, affordable, safe and smart way of making the most of a unique educational experience without taking the students out of school. Each play has been specially adapted for alternative stage areas like multi-purpose rooms, halls, gymnasiums, auditoriums, etc. No special requirements are needed, except for enough room to accommodate the spectators and perform the show.
