Here at Fun Middle School Plays, you’ll find fun plays for kids, not to mention the director and the audience! I offer a wide variety of shows for middle school. You’ll find comedy plays, old-fashioned melodramas, Wild West shows, Christmas plays, mystery dinner theater plays, Shakespearean spoofs, short skits, and more.
There are 30 minute middle school plays, 45 minute middle school plays, and 1 hour middle school plays--all of which feature laughs galore!
These scripts for middle school are guaranteed fun.
And if you’re looking for a school fundraiser play, there’s nothing better than one of these shows for your middle school drama group! They can be done with small casts, large casts, small drama groups, big drama groups--possibilities are endless.
Here's what people are saying:
These kid-friendly plays are both contemporary and creative while offering various grade levels and acting abilities an opportunity to participate. Costumes, stage settings, and props are all very achievable for schools. And during the performance, audience members are left chuckling, cheering, and clapping at the canny story lines students enjoy delivering.
I loved Cowgirl Cookie’s character list with so many unique characters, and not one of them overwhelmed the others. Each student could find a part that fit him or her–a funny character, a quiet one, a slapstick character, or a straight man. The kids were able to really work together as an ensemble, but each part carried its own charm. The humor in the play came regularly, and there was a nice mix of the expected and unexpected.
Ms. Alfieri brings a seemingly endless talent to her craft. Her use of alliteration, creation of an interesting plot, along with witty character names and a whole lot of humor result in a play that is fun to put on. The cast enjoys the production as much as the standing-room-only audience. Each play is a fun experience for everyone involved.
Talk about a great show! Every time I have gone to see one of Ms. Alfieri’s plays, I am enthralled! Not only is the story well written with great humor and entertainment value, she takes obvious care in character development, regional events, age appropriate subject matter, and most importantly, incorporates lots of opportunity for the actors to explore their own unique creativity. Having raised two sons, I have seen lots of local and school plays, but none written and directed the way that Ms. Alfieri does. I recommend her and her material highly for any theater group wanting to provide an excellent alternative and opportunity for their students.
Over the last few years, The Florissant Grange Hall has been the host for several wonderful “Dinner Theater” events. Each one of the plays, written by Alexi Alfieri, has not only engaged the youth in the community who are acting in the plays, but have joyfully entertained those community members who have come to our Grange Hall, in sold out numbers, to enjoy the Dinner Theater productions. Alexi is a talented, creative member of our community, who, with her fabulous ability to write humorous, entertaining plays, brings laughter to all who attend these productions.
I laughed so hard, I cried! Lexi’s plays were my favorite treat of the year as a parent.
Alexi Alfieri’s plays are original, clever, and fun. She has a way of making memorable characters that kids enjoy playing and audiences enjoy watching. There is a mystery involved in each that is solved with humor and creativity. The pace of each play is perfect. They don’t drag on too long, and they make great options for dinner theaters. Alexi’s plays offer wonderful entertainment, and we look forward to more.
I have attended at least five of Alexi Alfieri’s shows and found them all to be full of funny lines, great characters and enjoyable stories. Every young actor involved seemed to be having such fun and the audience definitely was too. Loved all the word plays and puns!
Lexi’s plays are very kid oriented. There’s a fun part for every ability of student that captures the personality of each kid. The set is straight forward and the costumes are simple. Best of all, the plays are very entertaining. The audience loves watching them, and the kids love performing them!
It was a pleasure to work with such a conscientious, friendly, and creative writer. Alexi crafted two separate melodramas that our whole staff and student body were thrilled to see and perform! The humor, ease of lines, and perfect script length added to our fun. You will not be disappointed!
I’ve had the huge pleasure of performing in some of Alexi Alfieri’s plays. Not only is she an amazing director, but her plays are fantastic and well loved by all who come to see them. Her plays are clean, funny, and more then a blast to perform!
Going to Alexi Alfieri’s plays have become a family affair. I can wholeheartedly recommend the fun-filled, family-friendly dramas to both teachers and students. They have been a great success and leave us smiling and asking when the next one is due to come out!

Once upon a time, I was a middle school teacher in a very small and very rural school. Actually, to be perfectly accurate, I was the middle school. I taught all of our sixth, seventh, and eighth graders in one room, all day, for all subjects...and loved it!
One school year, I happened to be in need of a playscript. But not just any script. I needed a script that was appropriate to the tender and tough age of adolescence. I needed a script that was flexible. I needed a script that was a reasonable length and could be performed successfully on a modest budget. And above all, I needed a playscript that was really, truly fun. Fun for the kids to perform, fun for me to direct, and fun for the audience to watch. And since I couldn’t seem to find a script that I really loved and met all of those needs, I wrote one. And I’ve been happily writing playscripts ever since.
