AGES 6 – 10 – Readers Theater – beginner to intermediate level

Oscar Wilde’s classic children’s story about a Selfish Giant who wouldn’t share his beautiful garden becomes a joyous play that touches on themes of friendship.  The Selfish Giant comes home from a long trip to find children playing in his garden.  He kicks them out and threatens to bring them to justice for trespassing.  But a harsh winter (in the form of comic characters Frost, Snow, Hail and North Wind) brings the realization to the Giant that the children who used to trespass in his garden actually planted seeds of friendship in this special place.  The Giant’s heart melts in a life-changing moment, and Spring, along with the children, returns to his garden.
