I got a late Christmas present from Pioneer Drama Service yesterday afternoon when I opened my front door to see a package of scripts for my new play, I Wish…, sitting on the porch. I guess this means it’s officially available for licensing! This is my first foray into writing theater for young audiences, and it was a lot of fun to write! I can’t wait to see photos of productions start popping up on the internet!
You can read a sample of the script right here on my blog by clicking on the Script Previews tab.
Synopsis: 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. Carol’s plans to bake a batch of brownies are set into a tailspin when a bunch of silly strangers (including a door-to-door salesman, a repairwoman, a pizza delivery boy, and more) show up, hoping to have their wishes granted by the Fairy Godmother. Making a wish come true should be easy with magic on her side, but an accidental encounter with a fire-breathing dragon renders Carol’s wand useless. To top it off, a bunch of mischievous mice are on the loose. Will we ever make it to happily ever after? And will the brownie batter ever find its way into the oven? Audiences and performers will have a ball with this delightful fairy’s tale.
