Photos from “Svetlana’s First Christmas Away From Home” in West Virginia

My one-act SVETLANA’S FIRST CHRISTMAS AWAY FROM HOME is off to a roaring start. It was first produced last year by Victorian Players in Youngtown, Ohio and this year is being produced twice, by Lewis County Community Theatre in Weston, West Virginia and Red River Revue in Clarksville, Texas. Here are photos from West Virginia. Of note: The Svetlana in the script is a Ukrainian exchange student. By chance, Lewis County had an actual Ukrainian exchange student to play the titular role.

Svetlana hugs the spider.

Another look at the awesome spider.

Lots of kids, lots of costumes.

Like I said, lots of kids, lots of costumes.

The show poster.

Actors Workout Studio in North Hollywood, California is producing six Christmas one-acts, three of which are mine: THE ANGEL TREE, THE CHRISTMAS GOAT and DEATH BY POINSETTIA. My cousin, Itai Levin, attended on Dec. 8 and said there was a full-house and the shows were excellently cast.

“Putting The Fair In The Tooth Fairy” in Houston

Annie Wild as the key and Ty K. Fisher as the tooth fairy.

My short script PUTTING THE FAIR IN THE TOOTH FAIRY is in the annual Cone Man Running Festival at the Beacon Theatre in Houston. Here’s what it looks like.

Video promo for “Famous People Killed By Animals”

My one-act FAMOUS PEOPLE KILLED BY ANIMALS is being produced at Michigan State University. Here’s the video promo for the show.

A suburban costume party goes wrong. The theme is “famous people killed by animals.” Unfortunately, the animals show up, as well. Comically absurd. Cast: Four — two male, two female. Running time: About 15 minutes.

“Death By Poinsettia” wins awards at Maryland festival

My play DEATH BY POINSETTIA won two awards at the annual Silver Spring Stage one-act festival in Silver Spring, Maryland.

It was one of two scripts honored for “outstanding ensemble.” I’m not sure if that means they tied for first or if there were an unlimited number of awards available. In any case, two productions got that award — one was mine, the other was A WOMB WITH A VIEW by Rich Orloff.

The show also was third runner-up for “outstanding production.”

There were 14 shows in the festival.
