StyleOne-act comedy in which the three characters engage in witty and insightful conversation to tell us their stories with comedy and pathos. Single (American) bar setting. Contains mild swearing.
SynopsisWhat do you get when you mix one-part disenchanted tomboy waitress who just dumped her loser boyfriend, one-part overly pontificating know-it-all seasoned bartender, and one-part recently jilted blue-collar droop who just isn't doing well with the ladies? You get the situation at shift-change at Shannahann's Pub. A light-hearted take on bar culture and protocol, where Gregg, fresh from a breakup, receives hilarious coaching on the art of picking up women from the garrulous barkeep, Pete. While he's more bemused than bolstered, his intended departure is halted when he encounters the pub's beautiful, hard-nosed waitress Vicki, who, after some coy, heated banter, provides him with a simpler solution to his romantic problem.

Skitskrieg by TLC Creative
RolesMinimum Male roles = 5. Minimum Female roles = 2. Minimum total with doubling = 7. Minimum total without doubling = 51. Chorus.

Run TimeAround 50 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne act comedy play for kids. It has leanings towards a British pantomime (in that some of the characters 'break the fourth wall' to interact with the audience), but it doesn't have some other elements - so make up your own mind. Anyway, it's funny.
SynopsisWhen King Benedict decides to take a new wife, life for his beautiful daughter, the Princess Snow White, takes a turn for the worse.
The evil Queen Dragomira is consumed by jealousy and acquires a magic mirror which, she hopes, will confirm her as the 'fairest in the land'. Unfortunately for Dragomira the mirror, in the form of its human 'extension kit', can only tell the truth and Snow White's fate is sealed. The young princess is cast out into the forest to die.
Can the interventions of a group of inept robbers (they used to be dwarves, but they grew) and an even less ept prince save the day?
(Well, this is a fairy tale, so the answer is, at the very least, 'probably'!)
