A Little About Us . . .

We are a group of experienced playwrights offering a variety of scripts and monologues here for students of all ages. Please feel free to hop around and see what we have to offer. We carry scripts for middle school, high school, the university, and adult plays for community and professional theater.

You may download a play excerpt or a perusal script for free, and you can also purchase one of our books.  We have both digital scripts and hard-copy scripts. Let us know if you have any questions!  You may contact us at: john@studentplays.org

“We had a blast doing “Don’t Let Bigfoot Bite!” The kids loved the setup, and I would recommend it to any school.” Diane SawyersOur Lady Queen of Angels, Newport Beach, CA.

Forty Whacks was a great play for the Halloween season. The play was spooky but also appropriate. My students loved the dark and creepy setup.” Autumn Browne, Brookhurst Middle School, Anaheim, CA.

I worked with John on Harper and the Hoarder, a wonderful play set in the deep South. We really brought the backdrop of Harper Lee’s Alabama to life! Geoff Gread, director, Anaheim, CA.

We used several of John’s plays but I really enjoyed “It’s Aunt Alice” and “The Great Galapanaza” the most. The plays were fun, and the school really got into it. Michelle Grubert, Community Roots Academy, Aliso Viejo, CA.
