How bright? Well, the aliens out in deep space take notice of the unusual light coming from an otherwise obscure planet.

Two short Christmas plays to be produced in Roanoke

My short pieces JOY TO OTHER WORLDS (the five-minute version, not the one-act version) and THIS IS ANGEL O’LORD REPORTING will be produced at Showtimers in Roanoke, Virginia as part of an evening of short Christmas plays on December 11-13.

The event is a toy-raiser for Toys for Tots. Admission: One unwrapped toy.

THIS IS ANGEL O’LORD REPORTING

The Christmas story, as reported on television – with Angel O’Lord as the television reporter on the scene in Bethlehem. That’s Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Cast: Eight – 1 female, 1 male, 6 non-gender. Running time: Five minutes.


JOY TO OTHER WORLDS

A man’s Christmas tree lights are so bright that they attract the attention of an alien species, which thinks it’s a coded transmission. Comedy ensues. Cast: Four: Two male, one female, one non-gender.
• Staged reading at Guerrilla Playhouse, Studio Roanoke, Roanoke, Va., Dec. 11, 2011.
• Staged reading at Attic Productions winter meeting, Fincastle, Va., Dec. 15, 2013.

“Joy To Other Worlds” produced in Manitoba

My Christmas one-act JOY TO OTHER WORLDS had its premiere this month in Steinbach, Manitoba this month. It was produced by the Backyard Theatre Company.

Here’s the synopsis:

JOY TO OTHER WORLDS
A man’s display of Christmas lights flashing to the tune of “Joy to The World” attracts the attention of an alien race, which struggles to interpret the transmission. Cast: Nine — Four male, three female, two non-gender or one male, six females, two non-gender.

I’ve now been produced in every Canadian province from Ontario and west; nothing yet from Quebec to the east.

I have three more Christmas one-acts being produced this season:

* December 19-20: LET THERE BE LIGHTS! by Mockingbird Players, Columbia City, Indiana.
* December 19-20: THE ANGEL TREE and A ZOMBIE CHRISTMAS, by CW Actors Group, Collbran, Colorado.

Here’s the complete list of my Christmas plays.

And here’s a partial list of productions this year:
