Melanie and the Trash Can Troll makes a perfect junior high or middle school production. The play has a flexible cast, simple sets, easy costumes and—best of all—lots of humor.
The funny fairy tale stars a young waitress who is forced to confront a terrifying creature called the Trash Can Troll. She discovers a secret the Troll has been hiding for years, as well as the courage to stand up for what is right.
The play runs about an hour and fifteen minutes and includes 16 characters, plus extras. The complete Melanie Play Package (required for performances) includes rights to performances at one location for a year, 16 scripts and 10 bright, glossy posters for advertising.
