Video of “The Beautiful Ogre and Other Fairy Tales” in Indiana radio play

Here’s video of my ten-minute script THE BEAUTIFUL OGRE AND OTHER FAIRY TALES being done as a radio play before a live audience in Mitchell, Indiana on Feb. 5.

Another script of mine, CHICAGO DREAM, was also on the bill but the program ran long so the last four pieces were cut — one of which was CHICAGO DREAM. I’m told it’s likely to be on the bill for the May installment of “Hoosier Hometown Live.”

This was the sixth production of the script:

A father reads his daughter a fairy tale as a bedtime story — which the characters begin to act out. The girl doesn’t like how the story is going — no strong female role models, for instance — so she changes it all around. This is the result. Cast: Five — three males, two females. Running time: Eight minutes.
* Produced by the Paw Paw Village Players, Paw Paw, Michigan, Feb. 15-16, 22-23, 2008.
* Produced by Youth Education on Stage Summer Shorts, Williston, North Dakota, June 24-26, 2008.
* Produced by Subversive Theatre, Buffalo, N.Y., various nights between May 2-17, 2009.
* Produced by Play’n’Well Players, Plainview, Michigan, last weekend of May 2009.
* Produced by Jeonju Players, Jeonju, South Korea, December 2014
* Produced as script-in-hand radio play by Hoosier Hometown Live, Mitchell, Indiana, Feb. 5, 2016.

Productions coming up in Indiana and Minnesota

I have three short scripts being produced in February — two in Indiana and one in Minnesota.

“Hoosier Hometown Live” is a radio show based in Mitchell, Indiana. On February 5, the show will include two of my 10-minute plays — performed script-in-hand before a live audience at the Mitchell Opera House, and also broadcast over WBIW-AM.

The two scripts are THE BEAUTIFUL OGRE AND OTHER FAIRY TALES and CHICAGO DREAM. The former has been produced five times; the latter has never been on stage in any form.

UPDATE: The show ran long and dropped the last four pieces, one of which was CHICAGO DREAM.

Meanwhile, in Mankato, Minnesota, my one-minute script JIMMY’S PLAN FOR WORLD DOMINATION will be part of an open-mic theatre performance at the Curiosi-Tea House on Feb. 12. That production came through Elaine Hardwick, who last summer produced my ten-minute play THE SKY IS FALLING in Mankato.

Details and such below:
