Welcome to Scripts & Clips - Educational Routines for School Performers

If you perform in schools, or if you are occasionally asked to “work a message” into your show, you've come to the right place. Here you'll find ten educational routines that are proven effective for elementary audiences, but you'll find they are easily adaptable to churches, libraries, community groups and scouts.

There are 5 Character Routines, 4 Environment Routines and 1 Reading Routine – each of which has been honed to perfection in over 500 performances each. Good news is, not only do you get the scripts, we have the video clips to go along with them as well for you.

But please don’t copy these scripts word for word. The last thing you want to be is a carbon copy of me. If you find a routine that’d be perfect for your show, then memorize the lessons, learn where the messages go, and use my routines as a template to build on. Add your own personality, jokes and style. Eventually you’ll have something that works for you. You’ll have an educational routine that gets kids excited, makes teachers happy and adds a few more memories to your shows.

2. Scripts & Clips wants your routines

How'd you like to be a part of a completely new concept in kid show magic and make some extra cash at the same time? All you need to do is submit a 100% original routine to us on DVD. It can be educational or just fun. Your routine can have anything in it that appeals to kids: magic, puppets, juggling, story telling, music...anything as long as it's your original creation. This is our idea of a true “money clip.”

We'll script it out, publish the video and send you $7 every time someone buys access to your video. There's a minimal, one-time fee charged to you for the scripting and video conversion, but you'll make that investment back on the first couple of purchases.
