Our actors have landed a great new job in a professional theatre company. To celebrate they go to a disco and one of them promptly loses the only copy of the script they have between them. The trouble is – they must have their parts learned by Friday. They go to great lengths to locate another copy without success. Just as they are despairing the text turns up. But a lot of anguish has been caused and to pay back the actor who lost the script the others decide to play a trick on him.
Mme. Longnez is the director of une Ecole des Arts Dramatiques which is in serious financial trouble. She has applied for a grant and the Minister himself will visit the school to assess its viability. She and her remaining three professeurs must put on a really good show if they are to be successful. Our actors will have to play many roles and will need a great deal of help from the audience to build up to an hilarious conclusion.
F.T.F.S. brings the expertise of 25 years of language learning through drama to your school. During the summer we have been busy auditioning new cast members in France and preparing our new shows. Brochures will be sent to all schools at the beginning of the school year.
These plays have been written to be enjoyed, the emphasis being on fun and on 'learning by doing', but by skillfully including many of the topics required for Oral and Aural examinations they are excellent for re-enforcement and revision of classroom work. Also included are small parts for students, and that, with lots of general audience participation, ensures students gain confidence in their ability to communicate with real French people. Each play is written in carefully monitored language, vetted by practising French teachers and, of course, the actors are trained to speak slowly and clearly. The abundance of visual action and repetition allows students of all abilities to understand. In addition, we supply a résumé in English and a lexique for each student beforehand.
