About All I Really Need to Know…
(Taken from the Playscripts, Inc website)
In today’s chaotic, challenging world, we often don’t know where to turn for help. Little did we know that life’s most valuable lessons lie within the undead. Finally, zombies engage us with musings on life, death, and everything in between. They show us that brains aren’t everything…you are what you eat…and what doesn’t kill you makes you…more alive.
35-50 minutes long. 2 female, 2 males, 14 either, flexible casting.
About Super Scary
(Taken from the Playscripts, Inc website)
Fear! Horror! Terror! That’s what the Storyteller wanted for his night of spooky tales. But everyone in the theater, including a vacuuming janitor and an audience member who really has to pee, keeps interrupting to share their own, less-than-chilling versions of the stories. This Hallow’s Eve, we meet a town that can’t tell the difference between a witch and a thunderstorm, a jack-o-lantern who is constantly peer-pressuring the devil, and a Frankenstein monster at the center of a high school romantic rivalry. A Halloween comedy that will leave you screaming with laughter!
30-35 minutes long. 6 f, 6 m, 23 either, flexible casting.
