New Farce

The Peterkins

Adapted by C. Edward Wheaton

FARCE. The poor Peterkins!  No one in the family has a lick of common sense.  Seeking wisdom, the Peterkins set out to become world travelers.  But when the family canít agree on a destination, they pack for every eventuality and find that their trunk is so heavy they canít carry it out of the living room!  With their travel plans ruined, the family thinks itís wise to become experts on the botany of butter by watching Mr. Myersís cow.  However, after a few hours of observation, all they learn is that when clover goes in one end of a cow and comes out the other end, it doesnít smell as sweet.  Audiences of all ages will love this delightfully madcap play!


New Comedy

Rumpelstiltskin (The Truth!)

By Gerald Casper

COMEDY.  So, you think you know the story of Rumpelstiltskin?  Not!  If Rumpelstiltskin can turn straw to gold, why does he need jewelry?  Why does he even want a baby?  What would Rumpelstiltskinís family be like?  Wouldnít the King notice that after he married the Millerís daughter that she never turned straw to gold again?  Easy to stage, this wacky, fast-paced version of the famous Grimm fairytale answers these questions and adds plenty of humor, music, dancing, and intrigue to entertain audiences of all ages.
