Written By Scott Freiheit
Directed by Alyssa Hersey

It's the 1960s, and Stupendous Pictures is producing one cheesy movie after another. When the producer has a change of heart and wants to produce Shakespeare, unexpected events grind things to a halt. Enter aspiring writer Allen Franklin who, along with the current headwriter Jill Montgomery, has to figure out how to combine shlock with classic to save the day!

Then it happens. Allen moves to New York for an Off-Off-Off-Off Broadway production of one of his plays and things come crashing down, including his relationship with Jill. But the misunderstanding between Jill and Allen is resolved when Allen realizes that he belongs with Jill and the crazy world of Stupendous Pictures. He even goes so far as to suggest that they combine the Shakespearean footage with some science fiction riffraff and create a new movie called "Cleopatra and the Slave Girls of Venus"...the studio loves it and yes, all is saved.

Pinocchio

Readers Theatre

Written By Dan Neidermyer
Directed By Sandi Wasteney & The Teen Board

Pinocchio talks, walks, and ends up getting into big trouble when two foppish scallywags, Candlewyck and Sterling, latch onto the stringless puppet and cart him off to the circus. With a little help from a friendly clown, Pinocchio outsmarts the rapscallions only to find himself alone on the streets at night with a group of bullies approaching. Pinocchio learns real fast that running away from Gepetto to explore the world was very dangerous and when the Blue Fairy saves Pinocchio from being chopped into firewood, Pinocchio vows to return to Gepetto and stay in school. Simply sparkling, this play is easily produced on a bare stage with minimal props and costumes. Production notes also include suggestions for spontaneous audience participation. Area staging.

The Baker Street Irregulars


Written By Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus
Directed By Angie Hagans

How do you do a Sherlock Holmes play with a bunch of kids? Focus on the group of kids who helped Sherlock, of course! First appearing in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes story A Study in Scarlet, the Baker Street Irregulars are a group of street urchins who assist Holmes from time to time. This time around, they may be Scotland Yard’s only hope. Upon investigating a mysterious murder at the Wainwright Circus, Sherlock Holmes mysteriously falls gravely ill and is unable to perform his usual duties. Luckily, the Irregulars show up and get the low-down from the acrobats, clowns, and animal trainers, as well as the circus owner and his daughter. With their snooping and clever detective work, the Baker Street Irregulars solve the crime and discover the mystery behind Sherlock’s sudden illness. With lots of unique roles, this fun period piece has all the familiar traits of a good Holmes mystery... without Sherlock Holmes!
