ON THE THIRTEENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
A wild, action-packed Christmas farce. A young woman suddenly finds herself receiving the gifts from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” apparently from an unknown suitor. The play begins on the thirteenth day as she copes with the chaos outside her apartment, as neighbors demand she do something about the noisy birds and pipers and drummers. The woman hatches a plan to shoot the birds and organize the people into an impromptu Christmas parade. Chaos ensues. Cast: 13 — 7f, 3m, 3 non-gender.

This will be the script’s second production; the first was in Oregon in 2013.

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

This is the second production of the script; the first was in Oregon in 2013. Here’s a photo from that production, which the director called “a true gem.”

Happy smiling faces. Mostly. I'll trust that's a pose.

“On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas” to be produced in New Jersey

I have three full-length Christmas plays (and a fourth in progress). One of those — ON THE THIRTEENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS — will get produced in December at First Avenue Playhouse in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey.

Still waiting on the specific dates.

This will be the second production of that script; the first was at Santiam High School in Mill City, Oregon in December 2013. You can find a photo from that show here. That director called the show “a true gem.”

Here’s a photo from “On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas,” which was produced this month at Santiam High School in Mill City, Oregon.

This was the first production of this script, and the sixth full-length script I’ve had produced.

“On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas” called “a true gem”

One of my Christmas plays, “On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas,” was produced last week in Oregon at Santiam High School in Mill City.

This marks my sixth full-length script to be produced.

Director Bill Brown sends this account (and promises photos soon):

“It went very well. Many people commented on how funny the show was and all thoroughly enjoyed it . . . Thank you for the awesome opportunity to “test out” On the 13th Day of Christmas for you. It is a true gem.”

I have a synopsis — plus a list of my other full-length scripts that have been produced — here. As “On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas” is unpublished, it remains available royalty-free.

At least eight productions this fall, including one in India

The flag of India. I'm about to have my first production there.

The flag of India. I’m about to have my first production there.

I have at least eight productions this fall, including my first in India!

I say “at least eight” because some of my publishers don’t report productions until after they’ve happened, so it’s likely that number is higher.

But here are the ones I do know about, which are happening in six different states and the forementioned Republic of India!

* The one-act “The Fruitcake,” a Christmas show, remains my most frequently-produced script. It’s published by Brooklyn Publishers these four productions will take me up to the 40th production mark:

— Patrick Henry Academy, Estill, South Carolina, Oct. 29
— McCool Schools, McCool Junction, Nebraska, Nov. 1
— New Underwood School District, New Underwood, South Dakota, Nov. 23
— Mitchell High School, Mitchell, Nebraska, Nov. 26.

* The one-act “Hit the Books” continues to climb up the charts. It’s published by Eldridge Plays and Musicals and these two productions will be the 13th and 14th of this script:

— Milestone Public School, Milestone, Montana, Nov. 23
— Catholic Central High School, Burlington, Wisconsin, Dec. 14

* The hour-long one-act “Macbeth Goes Hollywood” is my second most-production script. It’s also published by Eldridge Plays and Musicals and this production will be the 26th production — and my first in India.

— Pathways School Gurgaon, Gurgaon, India, Nov. 16. (This is on the outskirts of New Delhi.)

That won’t be my first production in Asia, though. Earlier this year, a group in Singapore produced another of my one-acts, “Mac and Beth.” It also was a Shakespeare spoof, perhaps underscoring how much Shakespeare is a universal language.

On another note, I’m struck again by how many productions I get in the Upper Midwest.

Finally, as previously noted, one of my full-length scripts is scheduled for production in December in Oregon — “On the 13th Day of Christmas” at Santiam High School in Mill City, Oregon. That will be the first production of that script, but will be the sixth full-length script I’ve had produced.

Note that all these one-acts have been published, so royalties are involved. But impoverished directors take note, I have many more scripts that are unpublished and I allow those to be produced royalty-free. Here’s why.

F0r more on these and all my other scripts, see the scripts category.
