SNOW GOOD – SNOW WHITE THE PANTOMIME

Snow Good a.k.a. Snow White The Pantomime carries a warning –  It is considered dangerous for wearers of spectacles  to attend as it’s so funny it will cause their spectacles to mist up from laughing so hard.  Spectacle cleaning cloths and extra tissues should, therefore, should be carried at every performance. Do not drive or use machinery until the spectacles have been demisted.

An hysterically funny retelling of the Snow White and the seven dwarfs fairy tale as rendered by the Goons, kicked around by Monty Python and crash landed by the Airplane I and II writers and built on this foundation a really twisted tale of jealousy, passion, sausages, stupidity and innocence brilliantly scripted by Keith Passmore.
Grandparents will role in the aisles, parents will go “ooo!” at the verbal and visual puns (of which there are many) and children will be enthralled and everyone will cheer at the end when Good, (“ooo!”) triumphs and the evil Queen is vanquished and later strangled by the Director for changing her lines, (off stage, of course.)

MY LITTLE MERMAID – SKIT ON THE LITTLE MERMAID

In this skit on The Little mermaid, Arial, our little mermaid (Not to be confused with the font) has her eye set on Prince Error (an unfortunate name that he couldn’t really help) who is a human. The only way she can get married to him and have lots of little merchildren is to become human. Since she is just sixteen, she just doesn’t have a checking account or even a credit card so she gives the evil sea queen, ”Umbrella” her voice as payment.

But the story ends well – she gets her voice back. Although she kind of sounds like Pinky Pie, nobody minds, really. As long as she doesn’t sing. Ever!! And they live happily ever after.

HELL FROZE OVER – COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT SPORTS

What are the perfect conditions for every American sports fan’s dreams to come true? Why, a temperature drop, of course in this comedy script about sports.

One so low that OJ Simpson (almost) finally confesses, Fahrenheit so
chilly that Magic Johnson is declared HIV free and thermometers correctly reflecting the icy ‘nature’ of things, to the degree that Tom Brady comes clean about Deflate gate. But this could only be a
reality if the temperature was affected in one place specifically, ahem, hell to be exact. On this day, in this sketch comedy, hell froze over and everything in the sporting world went to shit- AKA ….
mushrooms. So, have YOU ever wondered what would happen if hell were to freeze over? Find out tonight on the Chicago Radio- err – rather from Anchors 1, 2 and 3 in the play, Hell Froze Over.

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…

pantomime about pirates

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.

Wotcha! Gotcha! Steam Punk Funny Pantomime

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!

This panto has one written song in it, but songs can easily be added at the director’s discretion.

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.

As Alice finds what she searches for, she realizes that she was chasing after the wrong things the whole time.

In this South African Christmas Play, Santa is forced to take a holiday in October by his doctor, who says the stress of being Santa is putting him at risk for a heart attack.  Santa and his wife decide to go to camping in South Africa for their holiday and drink some wine and have fun in the sun.

Unfortunately, Santa is kidnapped and held for ransom by the Tokoloshe, who keeps him in his shack until he gets the ransom. Mrs Claus cannot afford the ransom, and appeals to the embassy of the North Pole to pay it, but it isn’t their policy to pay ransoms or negotiate with kidnappers!

Time passes and Christmas eve approaches. At the North pole,  the elves and other fairytale characters are in a flat panic. In desperation they appeal to Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet to deliver the presents. Unfortunately they don’t drive and will have to deliver the presents on foot…

Off The Wall Plays will publish your play and get it out there for you. If your play sells, you will get 80% of the Royalties of each sale from the beginning.

Because Off The Wall Plays is a smaller publishing house, we have the resources and time it needs to get your play out there.

It stays in our top ten new plays for the next few months.We place a sample of your script on the website, not the full play so no one will be able to illegally use your work.

If your play sells well, we will add it to our “Best Sellers” list, automatically ranking it higher than ordinary plays, the price increases, and so do your Royalties. Plays bought to be used for a run or a season will also have license fees that will be paid by the organization that purchased the play, and 50% of those will go to the authors as well.

Once your play has been submitted, your play will be reviewed by our editor, who will contact you. Please have a look at our guidelines for submitting your play – by following these guidelines it will help your play sell.  We don’t mind correcting the odd typo, but plays with many spelling mistakes, missing punctuation marks and poor grammar will be sent back to the authors for correction before they can be considered for publishing, so please make sure yours is 100% first before you send it! We also try to get back to authors within a few days at most so they will know almost immediately that their script has been received and whether or not it will be published.
