“The Sky Is Falling” to be produced in Minnesota

My ten-minute play THE SKY IS FALLING will be produced July 16 in Mankato, Minnesota.

This will be part of the Picnic in the Park Local Talent Variety Show, an annual event which this year includes: “New to Picnic is a “Youth Training Workshop” where youth, ages 11-18, can explore all aspects of produucing a short, 10-minute play.Experienced adult mentors from Merely Players Community Theatre (Seth Rausch, Breanna Boyce) and Mankato Mosaic Theatre Company (Jen Potocnik) will work with these youth.”

This production came completely out of the blue. Usually I go submitting scripts to theaters. Here, one came to me. Program director Elaine Hardwick asked some local theaters for appropriate scripts; one of them was a place where I had submitted . . . and so she contacted me.

This will be the second production for this script:


Two squirrels conduct an experiment, dropping things off a powerline. The result: Chicken Little gets hit on the head and thinks the sky is falling. Comedy — and a rap song — ensue. Cast: Five – 1 male, 1 female, 3 non-gender. Running time: Ten minutes.
* Produced by Piano Fight Productions, Marin County, California, September 2014.

I never got any photos from the previous production but do have this publicity photo.

So far in 2015: Read the rest of this entry »

“This Town Ain’t Big Enough For the Both Of Us” at Lakeshore Players, Minnesota

An ordinary western. Or not.

What starts out as a comic western gunfight scene turns into . . . well, two gunslingers trying to match each other on how to make the town bigger. One pushes residential development, the other commercial development.

That’s “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For the Both Of Us,” which was produced by the Lakeshore Players in White Bear Lake, Minnesota as part of the group’s annual festival of 10-minute players. (Mine weighs in at about six or so.)

This was produced June 4-7, 2009.

Here are some more production photos, and a cast photo: Read the rest of this entry »
