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.)

THE FOURTH WALL – ONE ACT TEEN ADVENTURE COMEDY

For those of you that do not know the most important aspect of the moments leading up to the performance of a staged play, LISTEN UP! The fourth wall exists and to all kamikaze’s, beware! Jack,
Jason and Sarah fail to heed this fierce and true warning when they decide to do a bit of exploring on a blank stage, in ‘The Fourth Wall’ – a one act teen adventure comedy.

When the performers discover the kids, they call off their show in the beginning scene and attempt to catch them and take them to the stage manager. When one of the three kids get caught by the performers, the other two kids left must equip themselves with prop weapons and team up with theatre thugs to fight their way through egotistical lead roles, a stunned narrator, epic soldiers, chaotic scene changes and a short tempered stage manager to get their friend back.

In this comedy, a few frivolous minutes of exploration unravel a series of unfortunate events for a show that is already a hot mess. It is up to the Stage Manager to get it together before the show goes on, as he carefully weighs the risk, reward and raucousness of running a revue.
