Dorothy's Secret: The Deleted Scene from The Wizard of Oz

A one-act parody of the classic film
Age Level: All Ages
Cast: 9F, 6M, 11 M or F, doubling possible, extras optional
Time: About 40 minutes, 1 act

In this "lost chapter" of the Oz story, Dorothy doesn't follow the Yellow Brick Road. When she gets sidetracked by a farmer who offers her a shortcut map to the Emerald City, Glinda the Good is furious. She wants to be a storybook star, but the story will be ruined if Dorothy doesn't meet her three friends to help her escape the witch's castle. It's a race against time as the power hungry Wicked Witch of the West fights against Glinda's dreams of fame, but Dorothy's stuck when the map mysteriously disappears. When it's recovered from the witch's traitorous assistant, Dorothy finds that it doesn't even lead to the Emerald City. Cameo appearances are made by Hansel and Gretel, Jack and Jill, a Munchkin TV reporter and Munchkin cameraman and more in this hilarious parody of fantasy characters. Great fun for a large cast.

The police, distracted by a few other cases, finally arrive only to find Sybil’s life spiraling recklessly out of control in this door-slamming, phone ringing, ridiculously fun murder-mystery parody that includes backstage rim shots, witty one-liners and a backyard wedding.

I Got Your Next Christmas PLay

A Cricket County Blizzard

A winter wonderland winds up wacky
Age Level: All Ages
Cast: 7M, 7F
Time: About 45 minute

Of all the tasks on the Country Cousins' Christmas to-do list, becoming ice sculptures was definitely not one of them! It's dang near freezin' in the holler — colder'n y'all can shake a stick at. As the snow comes down, the anxiety levels go up. How in tarnation is Christmas supposed to happen when the "chillbillies" are snowbound? And what will happen to their traditional pageant? Glenda Mae's buck teeth are a-chatterin' — and is that frostbite or freckles on Brenda Mae's nose? Before Cricket County freezes over and icicles start to form on Fester's beloved axe, something must be done! Enter the City Cousins, who learn to trade their opportunistic ways for the joy of Christmas giving and a warmth that thaws even the most stubborn drifts! A humorous reminder that peace on earth might seem as though it comes with a price tag, but it is equally available and affordable to all.
