Here you will find many a melodrama for you to perform.

These plays are a type of play from early American theater. This type of play normally has the same characters every time. These include a hero, a heroine, a villain and a side kick. The hero always defeats the villain and rescues the heroine. The side kick is normally silly and gets a lot of things wrong.

What is so fun for the audience with these plays is that they are part of the show. There should be a cheerleader helping the audience to participate. They do things such as cheer for the hero and boo the villain. The cheerleader should give clear instructions to the audience before the play begins and practice with them so that they understand their very important role in the production.

These dramas are quite fun and exaggerated plays. It is best if the actors playing the parts in these plays can really be outgoing and ham it up. Big is better!

We will have many of these plays coming to you from our wide range of sources to keep you in great supply. If you have any special requests just drop us an e-mail. We will do our best to write a play for your specific needs.
