The Fence – ten minute comedy about relationships

ten minute comedy about relationships

THE FENCE – TEN MINUTE COMEDY ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS

In this ten minute comedy about relationships, we take a humorous look at the lives of two ordinary suburban couples. They are friends and the girls often go round to visit each other as do the guys.They are both at the time of their lives when it’s time to settle down, get married and have kids. It’s clear that that’s what they all want. Or is it?? Perhaps it’s just what they’re telling each other…

‘The fence’ examines the expectations of the girls and then the guys on the other side of the fence, taking the same situations that happen to the couples from completely opposite and funny perspectives. While explaining what happened to their friends, it can be said that the girls tend to embellish somewhat and the guys tend to over dramatize! But if you think that’s not really the case, why not read this funny script set in suburbia?  You’ll identify with it.

Witch. Enter Ben (10) and Jesse (13) – two young boys. Not what you would call knights exactly, well, to be honest they are not knights at all but they are boy scouts, thank you very much and honourable even amongst real men.

URSULA – FAIRYTALE PLAY ABOUT A PRINCESS WHO BECOMES A BEAR

Ursula is seventeen and is a prisoner, trapped inside her own castle by her father, the King. Although he does it because he wishes to protect her, Ursula wants to see the sun and explore the world, no matter how dangerous it might be. Her nurse, who is also a witch, by the way, gives her a magic cloak that, when she wears it, transports her out of the castle. But it also transforms her into a big brown bear. She almost gets shot by a Handsome prince hunting in the forest, but luckily she she can still talk, she astonishes him with her powers of speech and he takes her home to become a servant in his house. There, disguised as a bear, she gets to know him and also falls in love with him. When there is a ball, she removes her bear cloak and dances with him as a beautiful stranger.

But little does he know that his own bear and the beauty are one and the same…

‘Ursula’ is a great fairytale play for children, with a princess that’s both outlandish and a breath of fresh air. It’s a Cinderella story with flair!

THE LOST TREASURE MAP – PANTOMIME ABOUT PIRATES

An island plays host to a group of keen yet ignorant child travellers as well as fearsome, bloodthirsty pirates in this pantomime about other group’s existence,  and both are desperate for a leader who may yet turn a disappointing start to a ‘quest’ into a true adventue and most importantly both are now in the market for lost treasure…

When the two groups finally face off, they are met with the possibility that they may have much more in common with each other than they previously thought! If that doesn’t beat lost treasure, what does? If that does not call for a song, then shiver me timbers!

Note: The script contains suggestions for various songs to be used throughout the play, but the use of these songs in the script is at the director’s discretion and the use of the script does not automatically entitle players to use the music without contacting the relevant authorities for performance rights for the songs chosen.  Songs can also be changed at the director’s discretion, as is traditional in pantomime.

BROOKLANDS BLOOMING CATS – SCRIPT FOR CHILDREN’S MUSICAL

It is better to have purred in the right direction, than never to have purred at all.

Cats!! From the purr, to the meow and the love of milk, the slit like pupils see, the triangular nose smells and the keen ears hear… that something is not right. The vibrant cats of Brookland’s School sense that all is unwell when their caretaker Mr. Morgan fails to show up to school with food for the day. Starving from hunger, annoyed at his betrayal of their stomachs and worried at the cause of his delay, when (whom they assume to be) Mr. Morgan finally does show up they rush to eat, none the wiser about a meal that will imprison them and have their claws harvested for gold by the stature-challenged and metal-obsessed, W’Evil. In this script for children’s musical, it is up to the cats to rescue themselves, rescue Mr. Morgan and save W’Evil from himself (probably) too. All in a cat’s 24 hours considering they sleep twelve to sixteen hours a day…

FORGOTTEN – TWO ACT FANTASY PLAY FOR HIGH SCHOOL – what happened after Neverland?

Gwendolyn is a young schoolgirl plagued by recurring dreams of an imaginary place and time, not of this earth. Despite her best efforts to control her dreams, they are becoming more real and frequent than ever. But when she wakes up, she cannot remember anything at all, other than a fear of falling. When she sleepwalks and almost falls to her death, her school decide to send her home again. Once home she is sent to a specialist doctor for treatment to try to cure of of her mysterious illness that is causing her nightmares.

fantasy play for high school

But it seems that the imaginary place is very real indeed. Gwendolyn is “Wendy” and she dreams of a very real Neverland. Peter Pan has left Neverland to try and find her, risking the lives of all the people who live there, including the infamous Captain Hook. For Neverland cannot survive without Peter Pan. Hook, desperate to save Neverland, and of course himself, has followed Peter back to our world to find Wendy and to make her forget once and for all.

“Forgotten” is an exploration of J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s story, “Peter Pan” and poses the question of whether it was simply a story, a figment of Wendy’s imagination or a real place. In the 21st century we are accustomed to the concepts of time travel and alternate universes. This fantasy play for high school cleverly switches between, so to speak, the alternate Earths in the story.

A fun play that mixes pirates and adventure with 1906 England. I thoroughly recommend it! Altaire Gural, the playwright is a member of the playwright’s guild of Canada.

WOTCHA! GOTCHA! STEAM PUNK FUNNY PANTOMIME

In this zany but extremely funny steam punk pantomime script, loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, Alice Liddell is kidnapped by the villains Mad Hat and Moriarty and taken through the looking glass to an alternate universe and imprisoned in their Dirigible because they want to take over her world and they have a cunning plan to get their way.

Her friends Dodgson and Prince Leopold enlist the help of the slightly less famous Shamrock Holmes and his sidekick, James Watson to get her back to their side of the looking glass. Together with the Dame and the Baker Street Irregulars, they set out to rescue her and save their world from imminent disaster.

They win, of course!

SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN UGLY SISTERS – SNOW WHITE PANTOMIME SCRIPT

Once upon a time, there was a wicked queen with an evil sidekick of a magic mirror. She was also the most beautiful woman in the world. Unfortunately this didn’t bode well for anyone else who was well, even remotely good looking. When the Princess Snow White blossoms into beauty, and the mirror informs the queen that she is shortly (well next Tuesday to be exact) to move to second place, the queen decides that someone else needs to take drastic action, and she sends her huntsman to kill the princess and bring back her spleen. Since she doesn’t actually know what a spleen is, Snow White and the Huntsman fool the queen, and Snow White runs away into the deep forest.

There she meets the seven ugly sisters who kindly take her under their wing when they hear the queen’s evil plan. In the meantime, the mirror has informed the evil queen that actually, Snow white is still alive and kicking in the woods. The Queen decides to do her in with the aid of a magical nuclear cigar, delivered by Royal Mail.

The seven ugly sisters leave for work as air hostesses on Goldonian airways, leaving Snow White alone in the cottage with strict instructions not to accept any multicoloured apples from strange old women.
Snow white is interrupted by the arrival of the ever so sexy (but boy does he know it) Prince Valiant, who is Revolta’s (one of the ugly sisters) brother. He brings an invitation to his engagement party for his sister, Revolta.

Snow White is surprised to find that he not only has no idea who his bride to be actually is, but that she should count herself lucky to have him as a husband! He tries to flirt with her but fails horribly and leaves, but not before accepting a package from Royal Mail for her (The postman is the queen in disguise) containing two nuclear cigars. When the seven sisters arrive back from work, they’re all excited by the package, but when Snow White lights the cigar for Hideosa, it backfires, sending her into a magical sleep.

The girls summon Valiant who happily kisses Snow White and wakes her up. He in turn is amazed to find that she actually doesn’t want to marry him on the spot. They are interrupted by the arrival of the queen who has decided to kill Snow herself (properly this time.) The sisters save the day by lighting the other cigar and aiming it at the queen, sending her into a magical sleep. Snow White becomes the new queen of the magical kingdom and they all live happily ever after.

A fun non traditional pantomime filled with cleverly adapted  Show tunes and witty dialogue by best selling playwright Claire Demmer.  This pantomime would suit a typical drama group where the majority of the players are female – but the sisters can just as easily (and humorously be played by males.)

Notes: The author will allow workshopping of the script.  All of the songs can be substituted at the director’s discretion.  The nuclear cigars can be substituted for any other weapon of choice.

SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES – PANTOMIME SNOW WHITE

Many years ago, in the kingdom lived a beautiful princess, Snow White who was forced to work in the castle for her stepmother, the Evil Queen Evilynn, along with Delilah Dumpling (the cook), Douglas (Delilah’s assistant) and Rose Red (The kitchen maid). One day, a handsome Prince, Prince Valliant, arrives in the kingdom in search of ‘The most beautiful lady in the land.’ Queen Evilynn likes the look of the Prince and wants to marry him but unfortunately he fancies Snow White.

That very day, the Queen’s magic mirror tells her again that Snow White is fairest in all the land, so she plots to kill her. Mandalay, the Queen’s henchman is asked to take Snow White on a picnic with the wood choppers (Horace, Doris, Norris and Boris). Mandalay can’t carry out his task and the wood choppers come up with the idea that Snow White remains behind in the forest. After saying goodbye to her friends Snow White becomes scared and faints. Fairy Good-at-heart sends her to live with the Seven Dwarves, who take Snow White into their home.

Thinking she has won, Queen Evilynn plans a big celebration but is soon told that Mandalay failed in his task and she poisons Snow White. The Prince has learned of the Queen’s evil plan and sets out along with Sir Richard, Delilah, Douglas, Rose Red and the wood choppers. The Prince gets there to find Snow White ‘dead’ but he wakes her with a kiss. The good fairy defeats Queen Evilynn, with the help of the audience, and all is well again.

This is a pantomime Snow White packed full of songs, jokes, slapstick and family entertainment.
