PIRATE APPRECIATION DAY – COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT PIRATES

Harken, mateys! Modern piracy no longer has its “good” name — or so claims the Pirate Appreciation Movement. This group of buccaneers believes commandeering a cruise ship on the Talk Like a Pirate Day holiday is the proper route to infamy. Its saltiest members, Walker D. Plank and sidekick Halitosis Halvard, sneak aboard the M.S. Stillwater as it departs for a Caribbean cruise.

They discover more than they bargained for in a colorful ensemble of fellow passengers. Frederick Feedle Fillingsworth is a fugitive museum curator with a valuable stolen artifact. Teenage nerd Paisley Nettleton is a prodigy of ancient languages and archeology, hovered over by his squabbling parents, Ned and Doris. The Captain — the hairiest man of the Seven Seas — would do anything to win the affections of Bridget, the mysterious yeoman.

By the time night falls on the first day at sea, a tentacled monster will be summoned, a sword fight will be fought with plastic butter knives, and someone will take a one-way voyage to Davy Jones’s locker. Aye so, but ’tis good to be a pirate!

The Waynesboro Players Community Theater premiered the play on Feb. 23–26, 2012 for a 4-show run in Waynesboro, VA. and was hailed as an “Uproarious comedy” by the Augusta Free Press.

MONTY’S MOUTHWATERING MOMENTS – BRITISH FARCE PLAYS

Privately educated Monty Marshington has dropped out of university. This means that his father’s dream of Monty following in his footsteps and becoming a world renowned psychiatrist have gone up in smoke. To make matters worse, Monty has set his heart on opening a French bistro instead and has shacked up with his Welsh waitress, Mafanwee, whom he has fallen desperately in love with and has decided to marry. This means that his mother’s dream of Monty marrying the highly bred but prudish Petula Patsworth has also vanished. In this upper crust farce set in the swinging 60’s, the rivalry between the Welsh and the English is still rife, and Monty’s choice simply won’t do.

Truth be told, Monty has ruined quite a few other people’s plans for his future. Will he marry the sweet Mafanwee or will everyone else succeed in sending her packing?

TUNE IN – TWO ACT COMEDY ABOUT A TELEVISION STATION

two act comedyWhen Danton Stanton ‘accidentally’ kills oil tycoon Mr. Paramount, he alters his will and inherits Mr Paramount’s long neglected TV station, also ‘by accident.’ Danton decides to make the best of things and together with his best friend Walton Harley they team up with a bunch of misfits who between them, have had SOME previous television experience.  These include the elderly Beverly Kraft, recently fired from her job at the community college, and Fred Feltbetter, an ageing has-been who fell far from grace in his previous job at the local rival TV network, and who now moonlights as Liza Justice, a cabaret singer.  Between the four of them, they come up with a plan to rescue the failed TV station and best the evil rival network.

“Dedication-

The entirety from opening to last period of this play is dedicated to my best friend of more years than I can count, William Harris, one of the most ingenious people I know, who was instrumental in co-crafting every one of the characters in this show and remain largely unchanged from their original conjuring. Below is an excerpt from their debut concept novella, now hidden on an external hard drive, never to be seen by eyes other than our own, featuring the scene in which the cast of characters prepare to walk through a haunted house attraction, an experience not unlike writing this concept stageplay:

“Now listen here, Comrades,” said Mr. Feltbetter. “This is gonna’ be really scary. So, if you need a hand to hold or a shoulder to scream into, you can just come right on over to me. I’ll be happy to help you though this!” Walton and Danton stood up and began to exit the RV, closely followed by Mr. Feltbetter and Beverly. As they crossed the parking lot, they were enveloped by the scent of cheap rubber masks and what smelled like a large supply of Dark and Gorgeous hair product.” –

I sincerely hope that this play can gift to you the laughter and joy that our friendship has provided over the years. It was a true joy to be able to bring a teenage dream to life. Anything can happen. A gospel singer could emerge from your closet, sing the hallelujah chorus, and then return to the shadows of your moth-eaten, forgotten sweaters and disappear. Never discount what seems unlikely.”
