Stuffed inside this ebook are relatively copyright free dinner theaters to spice up your boring spaghetti dinner fundraisers, skits for Fine Arts Festivals and other competitions, monologues to improve your acting abilities, and several bushels of ideas on how to best edit and warp my precious creations for your own nefarious purposes.
Nick directed and competed nationally in speech and drama competitions until he got a real job. He currently writes and acts for Improbable Cause Mystery Theatre and First City Improv in Pensacola (that's not his real job either). His new collection of skits and plays includes about twenty completely different works, many with several versions. The interactive table of contents allows readers to pick individual scripts, with all versions of the same drama grouped together. A brief (and clearly biased) summary of characters, plot, and even quality of the work precedes each drama so that you can quickly find what will work for you, your actors, and your potential audience. Some work well on a Sunday morning to illustrate a sermon, while others are best suited to increase the skills of beginning actors.
This book comes with limited copyrights to make life easier for you. You can even base a lame play about vampires and pirates fighting over the Cross of Cortez on one of these skits, and don't worry, there are no vampire or depressed dystopian teen skits in this book—just the occasional tooth fairy.
Probably the only book of dramas you'll ever need to buy, I especially liked the helpful hints--almost like a workshop--before and after each skit. The author's brutally honest ratings of his own work were almost as funny as the works themselves.
