Equally importantly, will they remember to bring back something tasty for Empress Min?
Excerpts from the script:

(The Winter Palace, St. Petersburg, Imperial Russia.)
ZINDY: (Approaching Fabergé Egg.) It's so beautiful!
ZORK: Yes, it's a Fabergé Egg made for Tsar Alexander III of Russia to give to his wife.
ZINDY: (Picks up the egg and pretends to bite it.) Ouch!
ZORK: Zindy, why did you do that?
ZINDY: I wanted to eat it so I could see better in the dark.
ZINDY: You told me earlier that it was made from 18 carrots!
ZORK: I meant it was made from pure gold, and precious gem stones and enamel.
ZINDY: Oh, sorry.
ZORK: How do you feel?
ZINDY: I don't think I can see any better in the dark.
ZORK: Well, I hope you've learned your lesson. Now there's one more place to go and we need to travel further back in time.
(Westminster Abbey, England, 1689.)
ZINDY: (Covering nose.) What a smell!
KING: (To audience.) Can you believe this awful custom? I have to wash the feet of poor people as a way of reminding me that I must serve my subjects.
ZORK: Poor him.
THREE PAUPERS: We're waiting!
PAUPER 1: I haven't washed my feet all year!
KING: No, no! I just can't do it. I tell you what: who wants some money instead?
(Three Paupers raise hands quickly.)
KING: (To audience.) I guess handing out Maundy Money will become a new custom. Hope so. Bye!
(Exit King waving.)
ZINDY: I've had a great Easter holiday on Earth.
ZORK: Me too, but it's time to return home to Zargon 5.

Spring is a superb time of year to study nature and learn about science. This play explores the changes that happen in nature during spring in a fun manner combined with scientific information. The play allows some pupils to act as fairy folk, whilst others can choose from a wide variety of roles.

Short play for 5-7 year old children.
The farmyard is filled with baby animals who are all terribly confused as to what type of animals they are.
Drama activities can play a huge role in children's primary education and development. The main requirement when putting on a play or reading a play is that the script has to be FUN!
Interesting facts about Easter traditions
People ask themselves various questions throughout their lives. One of the most useless questions being, “Which came first the chicken, or the egg?” I don't know the answer, but I do know that Easter came before the chocolate egg. Easter is a time of the year when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The Russian Tsars had jewelled eggs made as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers, known as Fabergé eggs after their maker.
Nowadays, people prefer chocolate eggs and children's 'Easter egg hunts' are very popular. What happens to all the chocolate eggs which aren't found? Perhaps, squirrels have secretly developed a taste for chocolate?
Other symbols of Easter include the Easter Bunny, daffodils and lambs.
Every Easter, the US President holds an egg rolling competition for kids on the White House lawn; and, in Bermuda, flying kites is a colourful tradition.
I like British hot cross buns.
