11 plays for only $25

Large Cast Anthology is a digital anthology of eleven contemporary Australian plays, selected from the Australian Script Centre collection by a panel of two experienced drama teachers and a youth theatre director (see credits). The plays include a variety of comedies and dramas, a non-traditional musical, a fantasy and an ensemble storytelling piece. Cast sizes range from nine to 130 and often allow for considerable variability.

Each play can be downloaded in manuscript form for easy printing, and includes a resource pack for teachers. Where available, this contains author's notes, reviews, information about the playwright, photos from previous productions, and comments from the selection panel.

The anthology also includes From page to stage: a teacher's guide to navigating the production rights process.
