Two new staged readings in Indiana and California
Posted by Dwayne Yancey in News, Productions, Uncategorized on March 4, 2016
I have two new staged readings to report.
The one-act JILL AND THE BEANSTALK had a reading at the Mitchell Community Public Library in Mitchell, Indiana on Feb. 25.
The five-minute piece LARRY’S LATEST PLAN TO GET OUT OF YARDWORK had a reading on Feb. 24 by Readers Theatre Repertory in Los Angeles.
JILL AND THE BEANSTALK
Jill’s science project results in a beanstalk through the school’s ceiling. Comedy and chaos ensue, along with a goose that lays golden eggs, a harp that plays itself and, perhaps, even a rumor of a giant. Cast: Seven — 3 male, 3 female, 1 non-gender. Running time: Twenty minutes.
I’m not sure which version of LARRY’S was done. Here’s a description of both:
LARRY’S LATEST PLAN TO GET OUT OF DOING YARDWORK, version 1
It’s spring, time to start mowing the yard, and Larry has cooked up a plan to get out of the chore. He’s bought some canaries, and plans to paint them to look like a rare species, which he’ll then release — in hopes the government will declare his backyard a protected habitat. Cast: Two males. Running time: Five minutes.
LARRY’S LATEST PLAN TO AVOID YARDWORK, version 2
A man decides to get out of the chore of mowing his yard by buying a herd of goats for the front yard. His wife confronts him and comedy ensues. Cast: Two — one male, one female. Running time: Five minutes.
• Produced by Kevin Jones Performing Arts Studio camp, Roanoke, Va., June 2009.
