Happy Halloween!

While we're in the midst of Star Wars Halloween over at my place (I'm wearing an R2-D2 skater dress this year), we're actually just two months away from Christmas. Auditions have already started for various holiday shows, so I wanted to introduce you to a new seasonal play of mine.

Christmas Superpowers and Believing in Blitzen is a one-act comedy filled with monologues great for young actors. Consider it for a production, to wow directors with fresh audition material, or just for a fun read.  Check out a description and excerpts below.

And Lauren needs to make sure someone is giving her little brother a very special Christmas. Experience the joys and challenges of Christmas through the eyes of children in this monologue-driven one-act comedy.

SAM: Well—what you’re forgetting—I mean—think about it—what you’re forgetting is that, is that, is that, shepherds weren’t neat. They didn’t, like, have a washing machine or something.  They were out in the dirt with the sheep and stuff and probably had to, I don’t know, like, sleep in a mud puddle sometimes?

And I’m not even a teenager.  Like, here’s a tip. Girls like to build things too. Okay?  If you knew me at all, you’d know that...Click for more.

DYLAN: I really don’t think it’s too much to ask. I’ve done everything you told me to in your letter last year. I’ve stopped hitting my little brother.

And, you talk, which has got to be magical because I keep talking to Bilbo—you know, my golden retriever—and he never talks back. Most of the time, I don’t think he even understands me except when I said “go for a walk." Click for more.
