|For my STAR WARS STORIES project that I created with a group of high school kids - I set up a group on Facebook where people could post their stories about seeing Star Wars the first time. From the stories and another collective writing project called THE PRINCESS LEIA DIARIES we collected a lot of material that eventually became the show.
The STAR WARS STORIES themselves were performed at music stands and read verbatim - like poetry. We also had other bits spread throughout - a few sketches written by the kids - and a few borrowed sources like words from Return of the Jedi and portions of couple of famous essays.
It turned into a fun evening of theater. You could do something similar.
Here's a link to a story about the show:
