New Comedy

Wilderness Bound

By J. Patrick Moss

COMEDY.  This wildly wacky play offers scene-stealers for everyone in the cast. Instead of going to summer camp, Stacey inadvertently ends up at a court-appointed wilderness camp for troubled teens where she is trapped in the deep woods with a hippie camp counselor, a kleptomaniac, a bully, a pyromaniac, a trivia geek, a girl addicted to Band-Aids, a Goth, and a girl who is afraid of everything.  To make matters worse, the camp leader goes missing, there’s no Internet or cell phone service, and they have to sleep in play tents!

LIttle Red Hen Explains It All For You

By Edith Weiss

COMEDY. When Little Red Hen asks Old MacDonald’s barnyard animals for help growing wheat, she discovers the other animals are too busy practicing for their fall talent show.  But when the divine smell of freshly baked bread wafts into the barnyard, the animals are suddenly eager to help Little Red Hen―help her eat the bread, that is!  This singing, rapping version of the classic tale is perfect for kindergarten and elementary school children.
