Index to Children's Plays in Collections.
Kreider, Barbara
This book is an index to plays suitable for study and performance in elementary schools and in children's groups. This volume updates the last such index, published in 1940 by the American Library Association, and supplements and updates "Play Index's" list of children's plays. Over 500 children's one-act plays and skits published in the United States in 25 collections with copyright dates 1965-1969 are included. Books with earlier copyright dates reprinted during these years were not considered. Only plays written in English were included, and selection was not based on merit. The 340 subjects were based on those listed in the 1968 "Play Index." The index is arranged by subject, author, and title, all interfiled alphabetically. Also included is a section on cast analysis, which lists the number of characters in each play and divides the plays into four groups: female cast, male cast, mixed cast, and puppet plays. There is also a directory of publishers for the collections indexed and a bibliography presenting full information on each collection, including the approximate grade level of plays in the collection.
