You’ve heard the story of Cinderella, but did you know that her sassy Godmother also has a tale to tell?  When a hardworking fairy named Carol stops by her goddaughter’s cottage to borrow a cup of flour, a simple visit quickly turns into a complicated evening of chaos when a bunch of silly strangers (including a door-to-door salesman, a pizza delivery, and more characters) show up, hoping to have their wishes granted by the Fairy Godmother.

The Dummest Play Ever

Wow!  This has to be the worst title ever for a play, right?  Unless...  maybe not?

In a series of silly scenes that will have us laughing at the “dumbness” in everything, the real question in the end is about what matters most.  And while we all can do dumb, goofy things at times (maybe a lot of the time!), we all offer something of value as well.  Despite its name, this play smartly poses pertinent questions like:  Is Artificial Intelligence smart or dumb?  Is a tri-fork an amazing brainstorm or just another silly idea?  And why are really good answers on a quiz show somehow wrong?  Perhaps Mabel’s Meditative Yoga Class is what we need to just let it all go and not worry whether any of this is smart or dumb or silly or weird, because it’s definitely all of the above!

What Happened After Once Upon A Time

A substitute narrator is called in on short notice to present stories from a stack of fairy tale books.  But just as each tale begins its ”once upon a time,” the main characters show up to interrupt and correct the newbie narrator’s telling of their story.  Turns out, these characters have hysterical idiosyncrasies:  Rapunzel is an insufferable diva, Cinderella is a clean freak, the Three Little Pigs are hypochondriacs, Little Red Riding Hood is a lawyer defending the Wolf, and more.

The Frog Princess

Roles are reversed in this colorful adaptation of the Russian folk tale.  Queen Natasha is tired and wants to turn over the throne to one of her three sons.  But which one?  Boris, her oldest son, is mighty and strong, while Casimir, the middle son, is clever with words and young Sasha is kind, but rather inept.  Each of them has some, but not all, of the qualities needed to be a good king, and the queen reveals that the difference between a good king and a great king is the woman behind the throne. Audiences will be charmed with this delightful and funny tale.  This very clever story also teaches that it pays to be kind to everyone ...  including frogs!

Shakespeare's Got Talent

Have fun with some of Shakespeare’s most famous characters in this comical one act TV talent show parody!

Our host, Puck, the mischievous fairy from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is joined by the Fool, a classic Shakespearean side character, who adds wit and fun with his not-so-foolish interjections.  Romeo, King Duncan, and Portia create an eclectic panel of judges for a collage of small-cast skits featuring other characters from the Bard’s greatest hits, including Hamlet, King Lear’s three daughters, Desdemona, the witches, and more!  Of course, the talent portion of the TV show soon takes side stage to hilarious high drama behind the scenes, especially with Macbeth as the stage manager and Macduff as sound engineer.

There’s all the trademark Shakespeare tragedy — plots against kings, pining for love, witch’s predictions of forlorn fates — but with comedic twists including pillow fights, rubber chicken duels, and a disco dance finale where the judges decide to award themselves the winners. Shakespeare’s Got Talent! introduces students to another side of many of Shakespeare’s most famous characters and plays in a manner that’s quite silly, highly entertaining, and easily relatable.
