The Summoning – audience participation sketch (COMEDY HORROR)

THE SUMMONING – AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION SKETCH (COMEDY HORROR)

It starts at the so called Production Meeting, with the meeting being called to order. Then suddenly from out of the crowd there erupts a pervert with naughty material on his phone (which luckily goes flat), followed by a witch spouting Latin curses, a creepy clown and a Zombie manifestation. To top it all off, the scary rental manager arrives demanding more money whilst the place erupts into chaos in this audience participation sketch.

The script relies on actors being placed within the audience and will be fun for everyone involved.

It is based on The Summoning, 2016: Haunted Attraction .

THERE WAS A GREAT BIG MOOSE – CANADIAN SATIRICAL HORROR SCRIPT

Like any other city in Ontario, almost nothing out of the ordinary happens in Swords. Heck, nothing unexpected happens in Canada. It’s Canada! The police force has become accustomed to dealing with random animals stuck in the air vents around the metropolis, every morning is a comfortable coffee run, etc. etc. Just the run of the mill small town agenda. That is until the star hockey player of this 3 530 strong city sees what he believes to be half a moose and half a man in one. On the hockey rink no less. The moose-man itself (himself?) believable or not, is not nearly as problematic as the story he has to tell and the secrets that come with it. Swords is about to expect the unexpected, in this one Canadian satirical horror script.

Just how well do you know your town?

BESIDE THE KITCHEN TABLE – GHOST AND HORROR SCRIPT

Michael is Lily’s last hope. You see, she’s a ghost and has been for fourteen years. In this two-act drama, her haunt is the large kitchen of the Baker household and Michael is the son of Paul and Laura Baker. Lily has a score to settle and no one else but Michael is able to help her at this point. Robbed of her life at such a young age (she was a teenager) and unable to go on, Lily has spent her time trying to connect with the family that last saw her alive. While trying to be ‘’seen’’ she learns that she may yet have another chance at some things that were taken from her. As Lily and Michael grow closer, she reveals that she didn’t just disappear and that she was raped and murdered, right on the kitchen table where the family now sits in this ghost and horror script.

As for everything else she has missed out on, it isn’t up to her to decide what happens next but luckily for her, a ghost has another way to serve a helping of vengeance: her hands are cold and so is the heart that no longer beats. Thus, she must use the human to enact her revenge….

I’ll be here…

THE VAMPIRE DRUDGERIES – TEEN COMEDY PLAY ABOUT A REBELLIOUS VEGETARIAN VAMPIRE

In this teen comedy play, Anton, the “son” of Count Dracula and his bride, is celebrating his birthday. Of sorts…

It’s not quite a birthday. It is, essentially, the day he died and was reborn a vampire. It’s known as his “Deathday”. In ‘The Vampire Drudgeries’, a comedy in one act, we see that for every growing teenage vampire their greatest wish on their “Deathday” is freedom!  This isn’t an uncommon wish, whether you’re a  ‘so called bloodsucking monster’ or an ordinary  human teen.   The freedom to go where he wants and do what he wants.  How about eat what he wants?  Well…..Anton is part of a  coven including; zombies, witches, werewolves and even the Frankenstein monster, that has to live by ‘vegetarian’ rules, thus the freedom to truly accept his true nature would be priceless.

Luckily for Anton, the omens may just be in his favour. Unfortunately, for the rest of us that is not a good sign.

The rules became as unreal as those whom they were imposed on. Unreal, unimaginable and undead.

BERTIE – ONE ACT PLAY FOR A CAST OF THREE

Marcia Jameson, divorcee has put up an advert for a room mate in her local paper. What she’s looking for is company – someone to go shopping with, to the theatre with and generally be a friend. When she receives an answer to her ad, she’s happy but quickly a bit put out to find that her prospective tenant is in fact an older man in his fifties called Bertie. Despite Bertie’s assurances that they’ll get on like a house on fire, she’s hesitant to accept him initially and then decides to give him a chance in this one act play for a cast of three.

Bertie quickly moves in and makes himself at home. A little too quickly, perhaps, but then he does come with impeccable references. Marcia’s best friend, Shelly is at first surprised, then suspicious, but when Bertie wins her over by promising to invite a famous friend who is well known in the art circles to Shelly’s exhibition, she welcomes him with open arms.

Bertie is everything Marcia needs and more. Helpfully cooking for her when she’s late at work, mixing her drinks, clearing out her garage within a day of moving in. He’s too good to be true.

If it’s ghostly services you require Lucinda Lazarus is your woman. Lucinda and her occasional shamanic partner, Victor Valiant, have gained some notoriety for their night work: getting rid of the wicked supernatural forces that torment unsuspecting folk.

In act one, Abigail Prescott, director of Foxmoor School for girls, enlists the help of Lucinda and Victor after a ghost she has become accustomed to, starts behaving violently towards the inhabitants of Foxmoor.

Act two sees Lucinda and Victor learning that in some instances, life truly does imitate art and act three puts Lucinda in the middle of a ghastly love triangle that ends as ghostly tales tend to. All in a day’s work for the minders of the mysterious metaphysical and The Many Ghosts of Lucinda Lazarus.

If you sit on their graves, they will not sleep. An adaptation of a story by Edgar Allen Poe – “The Oval Portrait.”

LOVELY, DARK AND DEEP – ONE ACT SCIENCE FICTION PLAY

It’s an arsehole world we live in. You know it, I know it, Dee knows it. Dee knows it well enough for her to lose sleep over it. Pondering the injustices and outraged over the indelicacies of
the human spirit, her only question is ‘Why’?

Although he cannot answer for the world and what it has become, Dee’s dad takes it upon himself to explain why things could be worse and how humanity is not completely forsaken. It’s a story he knows all too well, one he has mulled over all his years since it first aggressively presented itself to him. It is a story that, like many others, is at its core, a lesson and ironically; the lesson was never intended for him.

This is the story: Once upon a time, a guy decided to play a practical joke in which a weird unearthly sound would terrify his wife, in order to cure her of her supernatural superstition. Only, little did he know that his joke would lead to another dimension altogether, a dimension dangerous and deadly. The only way out would be to retain his humanity.

The greatest story ever told, will be yours.

MARVIN’S FETISH – GAY DRAMA FOR TWO ACTORS

For one night you would have yourself a married man. One elegant night he would be yours. Yours to caress, laugh with, divulge your darkest secrets to and indulge in your sweetest fantasies with.
One night. One night only. Marvin had this one night planned out to a T; from the manner in which John would address him and others around them, to what he would wear, Marvin left nothing to be
desired, after all he was paying for the ‘services’ of a flawlessly masculine man; he was paying for the ‘services’ of John.

In this gay drama for two actors, we discover what a burning passion for the popular high school jock has become for old Marvin. But (“but’s” seem to be the norm for these tricky transactions) there was more to it than a payment received when it came to Johns’ M.O. And his M.O. would prove a bit too fabulous for the one night Marvin had prepared.

Marvin’s Fetish achieved finalist status in Tennessee Williams’ prestigious one-act play festival in New Orleans, and has been hailed as one of the most original two-character gay plays that has ever been written and as one of the most clever and unpredictable psychological thrillers of recent times.

 Marvin’s Fetish has enjoyed three performances: The LGBT Center at 208 West 13th Street, New York City, Kairo’s Poety Café at 81 Christopher Street, New York City, and Moonfire (courtesy of Amethyst Nemzoff) at 305 Seventh Avenue, New York City. The last two readings were directed by Alan Baxter and featured DeAngelo Justice (as Marvin Casper) and Mark Parker (as John Corelli).

LONELY BIRDS AND SHADOW FIGURES – PSYCHO THRILLER SCRIPT

Jess and Betty work together in a typical office and rub along against each other as coworkers do that spend half their lives together. But both of them are lonely women. Betty is a widow and Jess craves chronic solitude based on her superiority complex and cynical view of the world. So when Jess accepts a bunch of flowers meant for Betty and then in a mean gesture, makes them out to be for herself, she never even considers that the messenger who brought them may have sinister intentions…

Both women are about to find what it is they really yearn for, or rather what they crave will find them in the most disturbing occurrences that infatuation can serve us. And he will follow them and watch their shadow figures as they move through their curtains at night…

Will the rules of right and wrong be clear when Jessica gets what is coming to her? And when she mysteriously disappears, will the principle of karma serve Betty well when she tries to make sense of what exactly happened to her “friend”, Jessica? Finally and more importantly; will anyone really care about the circumstances surrounding her “disappearance”?

WHITE WIDOW – TEEN GHOST STORY SCRIPT

In this teen ghost story script, a bunch of teens play a practical joke on one of the girls, called Sam. In the joke, it appears that the boys have dared the girls to go to a house that burnt down many years ago and to take a picture of themselves in the house to prove that they’ve done it. Local legend has it that the house is haunted by The White Widow who, as a ghost burnt the house and her husband in it, a year to the day after her husband murdered her on their wedding night. They say her young child perished in the blaze as well.

The practical joke turns real when the teens discover that the white widow is in fact real, and still bent on revenge…
