Wedding Flower – skit about a homophone misunderstanding

WEDDING FLOWER – SKIT ABOUT A HOMOPHONE MISUNDERSTANDING

It’s always important to get your homophones correct. What’s a homophone? Well – it’s two words with completely different meanings (and sometimes spellings) that SOUND the same.  Now in the wedding business, that kind of thing could be very important. As one unfortunate bride is about to find out. Instead of $10000 of flowers she receives $10000 of FLOUR! All dyed pink, as requested. In fact, she’s so upset, she wants to cancel the wedding. Because no girl wants to walk down the aisle simply covered in pink flour in this skit about a homophone misunderstanding!!!!

Snow White - the pantomime

SNOW WHITE – THE PANTOMIME

”Once upon a time, long ago, there lived a King and his Queen. They lived in a fine palace and all was bountiful and plenty in the land. The King and Queen were loved dearly by their subjects and everyone was very happy when the Queen gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter. Her skin was as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony. ‘

A few years later, Snow White’s father, the king, took a new wife called Malice. She was a very beautiful, but a wicked and vain woman and was actually a wicked sorceress, famed for making spells and poisons and she spent hours working on potions to make herself beautiful in Snow White – The Pantomime.”

And so it begins. Watch as the mirror breaks the horrible news to Malice that Snow White rivals her in beauty. Then as Malice tries again and again to kill young Snow White and fails. Young Snow White, beloved by many in the village is protected by Dolly, The Resident Dame and the seven dwarves. But… take care, the two village idiots, Squint and Wink may be working for both sides – good and bad! Malice may be planning to use them to carry out her dirty work. It’s no wonder she fails every time with those two on board!

REVIEW: It’s hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing. What else can I say? It has everything you would want in a panto in just the right amount, not too much, not too little. The puns are horrible, the queen mean, the dwarves cute, the prince charming, and the songs go beautifully with the story. Lots of audience participation which the kids will love. From the director’s viewpoint, the sound effects are imaginative and not difficult to stage, the stage directions are comprehensive and there are lots of places for her/him to use local or current colour or topics. – Tom Considine, fellow writer.

You know what? Adults are always saying how hard life is with jobs and kids and shopping and cooking and cleaning. But do you know how hard it is to be me? To be a 4th grader? I have tons of responsibilities. I have homework. I have to play the recorder in music class. I have to learn about the body. I have to manage 4 different girlfriends! Wait what day is it today? Tuesday…I have to manage 3 different girlfriends! Oh no…I have a spelling test today.
Poop! Anyway, you get the point. Us 4th graders are much busier than adults!

Tyler is a 4th grader struggling with all your typical 4th grade problems: homework, spelling tests, and of course – girls. From gym class, to music class, and everything in between, Tyler and his friends share their essential tips on surviving 4th grade in this children’s comedy script.

PRODUCTION NOTE: The play has been staged using older teen actors. Part of the charm and humour about the production was that the older actors were playing younger kids. As it is a wordy piece it would also suit teenagers.

ANOTHER ANANSI – CHILDREN’S PLAY SCRIPT BASED ON A TRADITIONAL FOLK TALE

Anansi is a naughty spider. He’s also quite lazy and a trickster, preferring to trick the other animals out of their hard earned food than do the work to find his own food himself in this children’s play script.

He thinks he’s quite clever when, in the same day, he cons goat, lion, warthog and bear out of their food and settles down for a nice meal. But unbeknownst to him, the four of them have figured out what he did and together with turkey, (the brains of the outfit) they set out to con him right back!

Anansi is a traditional character that appears in both West African and Jamaican folk tales. Another Anansi and Other Animal Tales was written for a summer theater group of young actors to have fun with.

THE WELL KEEPERS – PLAY FOR OLDER CHILDREN

The king of Colchester, after the death of his wife, has married the hideous widow, Edwina, for her riches. The new queen, mother to the ugly Luella and jealous of her step-daughter, Amaryllis’s beauty, does her best to set the king against his own child in this play for older children. Heartbroken, Amaryllis leaves the palace to seek her fortune; when during the journey she shares her scanty food with an old man and is kind to the dwarfs living in the well, she is rewarded by marrying a rich and powerful king.

Luella, too, wants to imitate her step-sister, but proves to be selfish and stingy; punished by the dwarfs, she ends up marrying a poor cobbler.

After learning about her daughter’s husband, Edwina leaves the palace; in the meantime the king had found out about her lies and greets Amaryllis with all the honours due to a queen.

Aladdin the pantomime

ALADDIN THE PANTOMIME

In Aladdin the pantomime, Abanazer, the wicked one seeks an infamous lamp hidden in a land far far away. Rumour has it that the lamp contains a powerful Genie who can help him rule the world. But he has no idea how to find it. Undeterred, he rings up the Slave of the Ring Hotline for help. The bimbo on the helpdesk checks her computer and informs him that yes, such a cave exists and no, he cannot enter it himself. There is only one in the whole world who can do it. His name? Aladdin. Location? Peking, China. China? That’s a bit far!

So Abanazer sets out on a journey. Aladdin, on the other side of the world is currently running for his life because he set eyes on the beautiful princess. Naturally this means he must die. But since he has no immediate plans to do this, running away seems to be the best option. Other than marrying the Princess of course. But that sort of thing doesn’t happen to young men whose mother, the Widow Twankey (currently unattached, available and let’s face it, slightly manly) owns the local laundromat. Nope. He’d have to come into a large fortune to do that.

Which is exactly what Abanazer promises him to get him to go to the cave. However, once they’re in the cave it all goes wrong. Aladdin finds the treasure and wants to send that up first, but wicked Abanazer only wants the lamp and seals Aladdin inside the cave in a rage. Leaving him with the lamp and a massive amount of treasure. The rest? Well, why don’t you have a little read and find out!

THE GIRL IN THE LAVENDER GLASSES – CHILDREN’S PLAY ABOUT BEING DIFFERENT

Like any other little girl, Marion wanted to go to school, play with her friends and be a kid. For ten months these little things that sometimes go unappreciated, became completely off-limits to Marion when she was hospitalised due to a rare eye condition. Dr Williams had the child’s eyes bandaged completely for her time in the hospital and she had no existence beyond the doors of her hospital bed in this children’s play about being different.

One day, Marion’s parents and Marion herself were presented with a donation of night eye glasses to help her see in her everyday life. She would get back to her normal routine before the hospitalisation. Marion’s story then began again and ended where her new world took shape and in three acts, this drama shows that the ones amoungst us who are scorned for being different, are magic.

She was a friend, she was a daughter, she was a girl, and she was a hero.

There are two things one must embody to survive in space: an allergy to philosophical nearsightedness and a finely tuned survival instinct. The crew on the space ship in Space Shenanigans, a one act children’s play, have these attributes and then some. After taking unexpected fire from another ship, the Captain has suspicions of insubordination from his crew and the stench of a rat is not too far away.
