funny library play for kids

sears_SM“Bobby Lucelee: A Very Silly Play for Kids” is available in PDF format here from author, playwright, and cartoonist Jonathan Caws-Elwitt. It calls for six actors and is, indeed, quite silly.


Sample dialog:

BARRY: Who’s Bobby Lucelee?

LIBRARIAN A-M: Well, duh, that’s what we’re all trying to find out!

LIBRARIAN N-Z: Psst . . . librarians aren’t supposed to say “duh”.
(Librarian A-M shushes Librarian N-Z.)

LIBRARIAN N-Z (To the audience): Who can think of some ways to find out who Bobby Lucelee is?
(Ad lib as audience members make suggestions.)

BARRY (To Librarians): Where are the books on stamp collecting? I need to get started on my homework.

CHRIS: Stamp collecting? I thought the assignment was on Italian cooking.

LIBRARIAN A-M: I thought it was on Bobby Lucelee.


Thanks, Jonathan Caws-Elwitt, and I hope anyone who performs the play will send a video to Library Shenanigans!

(p.s., I know the cartoon illustration has nothing to do with libraries or the play, but I loved it so much I couldn’t resist using it.)
