Robin Hood: Legend of the Sherwood Bandit — play with songs

Posted on Nov 24, 2017 in Family Audience Plays and Musicals, Intergenerational Theatre, Latest, Musicals, New Releases, Seniors in Cast

Book & Lyrics by Ed Farnsworth Music by Anthony Buck (Perfect for Community Theatres, Youth Theatres, High School and College/University theatre departments)   This tale of Robin Hood is told to the audience by a band of medieval troubadours, led by the character playing Alan-a-Dale, and centers on the evolution of Robin Hood from a playful noble to a selfless hero.  Instrumental in this transformation is Maid Marian, a childhood friend who expects a different type of nobility from Robin than he is initially willing to uphold.  Robin is surrounded by his traditional band including Will Scarlet, Little John, and Friar Tuck, and is opposed by Prince John, Sir Guy of Gisbourne, and the Sheriff of Nottingham.  But it takes more than just the expected characters to effect a change in Sir Robin of Locksley.  Legend of the Sherwood...

Posted on Nov 9, 2017 in Latest, New Releases, Plays, Seniors in Cast, Short Plays

a play by Harley Marshall (Perfect for Professional, College/University, Community and High School productions) FULL and ONE ACT versions available! ARE ALL WARS THIS WEIRD?! Billy Bunders is the luckiest or unluckiest boy who ever lived. From his birth, on the 4th of July 1900, in Kansas––the son of a German immigrant––Billy survives catastrophic event after catastrophic event: The War to End All Wars; World War II; even the presence of The Korean Conflict, horrifies him; as did the Spanish-American War that haunted his father and affected Billy second-hand. With pointed pathos and barbed politicism, “Billy Goes To War” becomes an intensely involving history lesson as seen through Billy’s eyes and lived through Billy’s actions and with his point of view: “War is …weird!” Dark humor permeates this unsettling play for these darkening times.
