by Sheila Rinear Tired of the same old Christmas Carol? This may be exactly what you are looking for! (Perfect for Professional, Community, College/University and High School production.) Merry Gentlemen is a full-length play heavily inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  Ben Dickens lost his wife, Isabelle, in a car crash on Christmas Eve. That was seven years ago.

The Skeleton In The School — An Elementary Musical

Posted on Feb 19, 2018 in Child and Youth Audiences, Elementary School Musicals, Latest, Musicals, New Releases, Short Plays, Women Playwrights and Composers

Book & Lyrics by Linda Britt Music by Colin Britt When four students at the Richard Scarry School in Lewburn, Maine, (location can be changed) discover a skeleton in the boiler room, rumors fly. Is it a former janitor? Is it their old principal, who retired (or so they thought)? Is it the teacher no one liked? And should they even tell anyone? After all, the boiler room is off limits to students, so if they tell, won’t they get in trouble? Will the truth about the skeleton ever come out? Produce this delightful short musical for your school or youth group at Halloween, or any time of the year! It’s easy to cast and stage with 5th and 6th Grade students and only 5 songs.

Who’s Running The School – an Elementary Musical

Posted on Feb 19, 2018 in Child and Youth Audiences, Elementary School Musicals, Latest, Musicals, New Releases, Women Playwrights and Composers

Book & Lyrics by Linda Britt Music by Colin Britt The premise is simple: What if you came to school and couldn’t find your teachers? Not a single one! Would you go home? Demand to be the Teacher? Bully your way through it all? Do anything you want to, without the teachers in the way? Would chaos ensue? The answer: Yes! A fun show that gives young performers a great chance to sing six songs, and dance, without the threat of playing a character they are not familiar with, as they may simply play themselves.

A great introduction to theatre and performing! PLAY DETAILS: At least 8 girls and 6 boys, the...
