Little Elza.  Do fairy tales come true, Dad?

Dad. Well, no. But dreams come true.

Little Elza. Do you have a dream?

Dad. Yeah. My dream is the happiness of my little daughter. I hope in future you’ll find a person, whom you can fully rely on and build your own castle. Remember, fairy tales aren’t just fantastic stories. If you look carefully, you can find something in them you may need to know later in life.


Scene 2 ( At the party, some guests are dancing)

Harry and Lili are behind the stage.

Lili. Harry, let’s go to the party. You are always busy  and spend more time with your laptop than with real people.

Harry. Lili, I am fed up with  all these parties. They are always the same.  The same people, the same conversations. It is boring.

Lili. Come on, brother!

Host. Hello, guys! Welcome to our party!

Lili. Thanks.

Harry. It would be better if I was at home.

Lili. Just relax\and look around.

Harry. Ok, who is that girl?

Lili .She seems to be pretty. Go ahead. Have some fun!

Harry.( comes to Elza ). Hey belle, let’s dance.

Elza. Sure.

Harry . What’s your name?

Elza. I know your name and that’s enough. You’re a son …

Harry. I didn’t expect I was so popular.

Elza. Are you kidding? You’re in list …

( Elza’s phone is ringing)

Harry: Where are you going?

Elza: I’m late.

Harry: For what?

Elza: Reality.

( Elza is running out)

Harry: Do you know that girl?

Host. Sorry, Harry. Nothing can do for you.

Queen . Hello my dears. Have you heard the latest news?

 Lili. What news?

Queen .And you, Harry?

Harry. Don’t you see, Mom, I am surfing the Net. I’m not interested in your gossip.

Queen: The Andersons are already grandparents.

Harry: So what?

Lili: Is it a joke?

Queen: Look! This is a front page news.

King. When are you going to get married, I wonder, son?

 Queen. We want to have grandchildren. We are not too old and full of energy. We think that such a handsome, clever and good educated guy as you are deserves the best wife.

 Harry. Mom, Dad, stop bothering me. It is my own life.

King. We have heard it many times but we are tired. Now or never! You have to make a decision : to be alone without our support and money or to have both: family and our company.

Queen. Harry, be smart and make a right choice.

Harry. I’ll  think it over, Mom, but later. Ok?

(mother and father go out)

Lili. (comes to her brother) Have you made the most important decision in your life yet?

Harry. Sure. I’ll make our parents happy. I’ll choose the best girl in our city. She will be beautiful, clever and kind.

Harry: I know who’ll cope with this: my friends.

Harry .You know, I have a problem. My father told me to get married soon, otherwise I would lose our business and money and need to choose the best girl to solve it.

F 1. Let’s see what we can do.

F2. I have an idea. We can organize a show where only the most beautiful and talented girls will take part.

F1. And then there will be only six girls in the final. Our creative team will help you and you’ll choose the best one.

 F2. And we will run an ad for our contest on TV.

Harry. Perfect. Let’s discuss the details then.

Step-mother. Poor Elza, you don’t know that you should be invited to the contest. Look at yourself, you are not so beautiful and smart as your sisters. Besides, you are an ordinary girl and don’t have a suitable dress. Sweetheart, now that you’re old enough, there is something I’ve always wanted to tell you, and I think you’re ready to hear it. You are not very pretty and you are not very bright. I’m so glad that we had that talk. And don’t forget you have to wash up, clean the house and cook the dinner.

Anna. It’s time to go.

Mary. Elza, don’t be upset. We’ll say Hello to Harry. Bye (they go out)

Dad. Elza, I have good news for you.

Elza. At last , I’ll hear something good.

Dad. My darling, you have an invitation too.

Elza. Thank you, dad. I know that you love me but I have nothing to wear for such occasion and I  have to do a lot of housework.

Dad. I’ll call Rhonda. She always knows what to do.

(Elza is cleaning the room, Rhonda comes in)

Rhonda. Elza, is that you? I have not seen you for ages.

Elza. Rhonda, I am so glad to see you.

Rhonda. How is it going?

Elza. My stepmother and her daughters  don’t love me and often offend me. They are unbearable. I’m fed up with them. As my Dad has told you, they are on the contest and I’m at home. But it’s not fair.

Rhonda. Elza, your dream comes true. Look, what I’ve got for  – a beautiful dress, nice shoes and a diamond necklace. I’m sure, all these things will look so good on you. But remember in any situation you have to be yourself. Be a smart girl! I wish you good luck!

  1. Подяка вам за такий об’ємний труд! В постановці задіяно багато ( що важливо!) – персонажів – тобто, учнів-підлітків. Втілити такий задум, поставити виставу на сцені – це Танталів труд. Але дуже результативний. Успіху вам!

  2. Оксана Олександрівна пропонує інтерпритацію відомої казки на сучасний лад. Грамотно на початку розробки наводити список літературних персонажів, а вже потім подавати змістове рішення художнього твору. Корисним є вправляння в іншомовному розмовному жанрі, формування акторської майстерності.

  3. Уроки-казки на мою думку пробуджують творчі здібності учнів будь-якої вікової групи. Плюс даної розробки в тому, що можна задіяти у постановці хлопців і дівчат і дати учням можливість проявити себе. На даний виховний захід можна запросити колег та батьків і поділитися досвідом з ними.
