Battle of Puebla play script of Cinco de Mayo cover No holiday is more a celebration of the people than the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo. Its roots lie in the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla, a victory that drove imperial forces out of Mexico and established the people as the rulers of the neighbor to our south.

As several friends discuss an assignment for Cinco de Mayo on the way home from school they decide to stop by the house of a mysterious woman who turns out to be the descendant of the hero of the Battle of Puebla. In rap song she describes to them the history of the holiday and explains why we celebrate Fiesta on the fifth of May.

This short play, ideal for a Cinco de Mayo presentation, contains several rap songs, features 2 strong male characters, 2 good female characters and several smaller supporting roles and a chorus of soldiers which is expandable in size, depending on the number of students to be used. Good for upper elementary and middle school students. Can be intergenerational, as there are both adult and child roles. The hard copy version is 8 1/2" x 11" in size with spiral binding (which lets it lie flat on a desk, when opened) and color cover.

Here's one of our satisfied customers:
"The download went perfectly. I teach Spanish to grades 1-8 and am a classroom teacher for 4th and 5th grades at a Montessori school. My students were interested in reenacting the Battle of Puebla, and I was searching for a script for this purpose when I ran into your website. Your
"Cinco de Mayo" play was slightly different than my original idea, but very appealing and funny, so I decided to give it a try.
We have a lot more freedom of curriculum design at our school and all students take drama class. We also like to incorporate short plays into history class and other subject areas. I'll be browsing your other books and plays to maybe get some more ideas.
Thanks for the resource. It is great being able to download the ebook and receive it instantly."
