21 to 30 Minutes
31 to 45 Minutes
46 to 60 Minutes
More than 60 Minutes
Caution: Run-times are estimates from word-count (plus estimates for songs, where applicable). This will vary enormously due to speaking rate, stage business, songs and dances and the logistics of getting large casts on and off small stages!.
School Plays
This category is here to identify
plays with a minimum of 25 performers
plays with a chorus (in the sense of "crowd", not necessarily in the sense of "choir") which usually means that the plays can be done by a large group (sometimes multiple classes).

The verse plays include some plays with educational value (some of them in a mix of rhyme and prose), some rhyming drama just for fun, and, of course, the rhyming pantomimes
Plays by Genre
Musicals and Musical Plays
Plays with Religious/Moral Themes
Dramas based on Old Testament Stories
New Testament Stories
"Christian Commentaries" (plays with religious themes, but not based on any specific text)
Other moral plays.
Most of the Christmas Plays have some religious element (on the grounds that it's a Christian festival!) although a few remain resolutely secular.
Plays with Educational Themes
Select all educational plays or the specific topics listed... (Introductions to) Shakespeare
Plays about Bullying
Plays about Ecological (Green) Issues
The Olympic Games
Historical Drama
Most of the History Plays have some sort of educational value. However there are also a few
plays with no direct educational purpose set in a well-defined historical period.
History plays by theme:-
Ancient Civilizations - Greeks (including Greek Myths), Egyptians, Romans
Anglo Saxons
World War 2
The rest of the Twentieth Century
These scripts could be used as plays, but also function as "group readers", to be read aloud with each member of the group taking a role.
Pantomimes for Kids
These include
school pantomimes (specifically written for school-age children and generally no longer than an hour),
(short) rhyming pantomimes and
longer pantomimes that are within the range of (some) school-age groups.
