“Jill And the Beanstalk” to be produced in Virginia

The beanstalk takes shape.

The beanstalk takes shape.

Yes, that’s a beanstalk, the starring prop of my one-act JILL AND THE BEANSTALK, which will be produced in December by Patrick Henry Community College in Virginia.

Shows will be Saturday, December 3 at 11 a.m. at Patrick Henry’s Stuart campus. A second show will be Wednesday, December 7 at 3:45 p.m. for after-school students at Fieldale-Collinsville Middle School.

This will be the first production of the script, which previously had a staged reading in Indiana.


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.
* Staged reading by Mitchell Community Public Library, Mitchell, Indiana, February 2016.

Productions set in Michigan and Utah

I have two new productions to report — both of one-acts.

Michigan State University will produce CATCH OF THE DAY Nov. 3-6. That script has been done as a radio play before but this will be the first stage production.

Meanwhile, a high school in Millard County, Utah will produce JOY TO OTHER WORLDS. That script has been produced once before, but I’ve written a new ending, so this will be the first production of the revised version.

CATCH OF THE DAY
A nervous mother is preparing to entertain her daughter and the daughter’s new boyfriend. She’s eager for the match to succeed. She’s instructed her husband to pick up some fish on the way home for dinner; he mistakenly acquires a fugu, a type of fish prized as a delicacy in Japan — but which is also highly poisonous, if improperly prepared. Naturally, the woman succeeds in poisoning the daughter and her boyfriend — sending them into a trance. Comedy ensues, while the pair are frozen in position through part of the play. Cast: Two males, two females. Running time: 30 minutes.
* Staged reading as a radio play by Falcon Radio Theatre, Seattle, Washington, April 23, 2013.


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. Running time: 30 minutes.
* Produced by Backyard Theatre Company, Steinbach, Manitoba, December 2014.
