Much Ado About Nothing — Shakespeare

Posted on Jan 10, 2019 in Classics, Latest, New Releases, Plays, Shakespeare Plays

by William Shakespeare Freely adapted and updated from the Shakespeare Classic by J.D. Newman (Perfect for Colleges/Universities, High Schools and Middle Schools) The military war is over, but the “merry war” of love has just begun! Considered one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, join Beatrice and Benedict, Hero and Claudio as they navigate through mine fields of words and jealous rivals to the safety of finding that one person with whom you truly belong. Drawing serious and frivolous into one realm, the show tells of nobleman Leonato, who shares his home with his daughter, Hero; niece, Beatrice; and elder brother, Antonio, as he welcomes friends home from the war. The play is set in 1945, just as WWII was coming to a close. A time in history where feminism had just experienced more progress than it ever had before. The...

10 Things from The Playwrights Center about Script Submission–BLOG January 2, 2019

Posted on Jan 2, 2019 in PLC BLOG

Ten Things a Reader Wants You to Know (or, How to Keep Your Script in Consideration) 1. A script is not a musical score. 2. There is a distinction between a play and an experimental theatre piece. 3. Send the right project to the right theatre. 4. Remember, theatre is theatre. Be realistic about what can be accomplished in theatre. 5. The stage directions are not there to demonstrate your literary ability or creativity. 6. Start at the very beginning, or set the scene properly. 7. Don’t submit the first draft of your first play. 8. Know what you are writing. 9. Spelling and grammar count. So does formatting. 10. Don’t send a musical to a play contest and don’t send a play to a musical contest (and so many other scenarios…). For the full article — which is...

Musical Theatre: The Craft of Composing Lyrics — BLOG — December 28, 2018

Posted on Dec 28, 2018 in PLC BLOG

Crafting a Lyric Lyrics have the same forms as the music(1) — but which comes first: the music or the lyric? Usually — the idea. What follows depends entirely on the method of collaboration, even if the collaborator is yourself as a Composer-Lyricist. Sometimes a lyric will burst forth completely or nearly formed and just vomit itself onto your page. That is a rare blessing. Many times a lyric is constructed, shaped and moulded like a mini-play. Then you compose the music to it. Often times, a Lyricist is handed music, or music is played for him or her (sometimes over and over again) until he/she finds the rhythm and meter of the song. Then there are those instances where a bit of music or a bit of lyric begins the process followed by a bit more of lyric...

Musical Theatre: The Craft of Composing Music — BLOG — December 6, 2018

Posted on Dec 6, 2018 in PLC BLOG

The Theatre Song TYPE (not an exhaustive list) The Overture — in olden times, as in Opera, and Operetta, the Overture was a separately composed, self-contained melody meant to get us ready for the action. Its transition to Musical Theatre enabled the composer to tease the audience with ‘gems’ from the score. And who is not happily teased by one of the greatest overtures in all Musical Theatre: GYPSY. The Showtune — (a particular type of Theatre Song, usually with a score full of them, and can appear in any of the forms below) The Reprise — a repetition of a song in the show to echo or remind us of the Protagonist’s, (or other character’s) want or need, or stumbling block. The Dance Number — a sung song with inherent need for dance, accomplished in a dance break...

The Perfect Play? — BLOG — November 27, 2018

Posted on Nov 27, 2018 in PLC BLOG

THE PERFECT PLAY? Is a play ever really finished, done, thrillingly able to live on its own forever without tinkering? No. Each of us could fix, rewrite, tinker, ad infinitum, ad nauseum, any script we have ever created. The perfect play does not exist. A play will never be perfect. Just as a human being will never be perfect. But we can get as close as is humanly possible. There is always something, because the target of perfectionism is a moving one. A moving target is very difficult to hit at the very center each time. With every shot you take, the aim gets closer to the center, but there is always a stray round or two, because unlike your aim with a gun or bow and arrow, there is no skill that you can learn to make everything...

Capturing Characters Onstage — BLOG August 28, 2018

Posted on Aug 28, 2018 in PLC BLOG

I had the privilege to be called down to Ferrum College and the Blue Ridge Dinner Theatre in the summer of 2002. I had just gotten back from writing a commissioned musical for the Salt Lake Olympics that did quite well there, and was just setting back in to life in Nova Scotia when I got a call from Rex. He asked me to come down and be the dramaturg for a week or so to  help him get his new script on its feet. Well, I went and loved it! This article appeared sometime later. It was an interview with Tina Hanlon and Rex, the founder of BRDT at Ferrum and a close friend. — C.
