Welcome to the bytheRIVERside . . . official website of Sid River

On this website you will find a collection of comedy scripts, sketches and mini-plays which you are free to use in the classroom, theatre, assembly hall or just for your own amusement. They have all been successfully tested on live children, mostly to great effect (notably in class assemblies and end of year reviews).
 
All we ask is that you credit the author with the work and possibly send an email to bytheriverside to let us know what you thought of it and how successful the performance was. If you are intending to charge a fee for a production, please see the usage guidelines.

'GIRL IN DA HOODIE'


There have been many alternatives to the Little Red Riding story, and quite a few with a tough, no-nonsense main character. This one worked well in an end of year review and got lots of laughs. The Grandma and woodcutter characters worked really well.

If we could make a cup of tea for you at this point, we would! Here's a picture of some feet instead.
