TIME: About 40 minutes You'll find tons of silliness packed into this charming comedy that has a little something for everyone and even a nice moral. McQuadle is a dragon who wants to know his purpose in life, and he will go to almost any length to find it out — even if it means visiting an Evil Queen who lives in a castle on top of the hill. When he arrives, McQuadle learns that the Queen has lured him there for her own secret purposes, and she doesn't intend on letting him get back home at all. But McQuadle promised his mother he'd be home for dinner! Three storytellers with crazy personalities of their own lead the audience through this fun adventure that includes audience participation, laugh-out-loud silly jokes and sight gags. What's even better is it's a breeze to stage with minimal sets, simple costuming and very flexible casting....

It's not too early to be thinking about your Easter play

Age Level: All Ages
Cast: 5M, 5F
Time: 30 minutes

It's a sunrise service in Cricket County, and the hillbilly Taylor clan is hosting it in their front yard! The bucolic pre-dawn darkness is interrupted by the arrival of their highbrow, opportunistic city cousins. They're forever after the coal mines and oil fields the Taylors inherited from their late Uncle Zeke, and this year is no exception for these money-grubbing kinfolk, as they surreptitiously search for a new "treasure" Grandma supposedly found. But when the sunrise service begins, thoughts quickly turn to the true meaning of Easter as everyone, including the city bunch, shares what the Resurrection means to them. When Grandma's treasure is revealed, greedy hearts soften. More homespun theology from these irresistible characters from the holler. Fun but appropriately reverent.
