The Hat Play

The Hat
Reader's Theater

You will need:

  •   Eight  actors, two narrators, a group of children and seven character masks which you can download from this page.

  •   Items for line.  Gloves, socks, hat, sweater, long johns, scarf and vest.

  •   2 coat racks, string, white bed sheets, brown crepe paper and fallen tree branches.

  •   Large piece of cardboard, and paint.

  •   New plastic trash barrel with paper to cover and paint.

  •   Follow the directions in the illustration above to make the set.

     Click on the thumbnail images below.  Use a printer to print them, glue to poster board, cut out.  A good way to manage the character masks is to attach them to a wand which can be held. To make a wand, take a piece of typing paper and starting with one corner, roll tightly toward the opposite corner.   Then secure with tape.
