Ephesians 3:20-21

"WHOSE PLAY IS IT ANYWAY?!"

The Scuttleberry High School Beginning Theatre Class is preparing to do their spring play. Director Carmichael has a clever idea to combine the three fairy tales, “Three Little Pigs,” “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” and “Cinderella” into one mashed up play. Leona, an aspiring playwright with an over-zealous social conscious and an abundance of big words is constantly making script suggestions and edits that result in an already confused and uninterested theatre class. The budding actors don’t know if they’re telling the story of three pigs, three bears or a shoeless debutant. Somehow a cowboy, an 18th century maiden and Elvis get on stage and Ms. Carmichael can’t seem to get enough coffee to get her through to opening night. Will Cosette or Galinda get the lead? What is the lead role? What is the story?! And Whose Play Is It Anyway?

 

Here is a sample of some of the Cast of Characters in "WHOSE PLAY IS IT ANYWAY?!"

 

DIRECTOR CARMICHAEL: TEACHER OF THE SCUTTLEBERRY BEGINNING THEATRE CLASS. DRINKS A LOT OF COFFEE, IS MELODRAMATIC AND BECOMES FLUSTERED AND EXASPERATED AS SHE TRIES TO PRODUCE HER PLAY.

STUDENTS:

 

LEONA: WRITER WHO IS CONSTANTLY MAKING SUGGESTIONS AND EDITS TO THE PLAY. USES LOTS OF BIG WORDS AND EXPLANATIONS THAT MAKE NO SENSE. SHE WANTS TO SEE HER 'PLAY EXPERIMENT' ON STAGE. WEARS READING CLASSES ON A CHAIN AND CARRIERS HER WRITING NOTEBOOK.

 

COSETTE: DIVA ACTRESS WHO HAS BEEN THE LEAD IN ALL THE SCHOOL PLAYS AND NUMEROUS COMMUNITY THEATRE PRODUCTIONS. SHE THINKS SHE’S UBER TALENTED AND BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE. ALWAYS WEARS SUNGLASSES AND A BOA.

 

GALINDA: BUBBLY, VERY POPULAR ACTRESS WHO COMPETES WITH COSETTE FOR EVERY PART. ALWAYS WEARS A TIARA AND IS SUGARY SWEET AND EVERYBODY LOVES HER BECAUSE SHE IS SO POPULAR.

 

GINGER/MISTY/MARTHA: DANCER WHO CHANGES HER NAME PER THE STYLE OF DANCE SHE IS DOING (GINGER RODGERS/BALLROOM, MISTY COPELAND/BALLET, MARTHA GRAHAM/MODERN). SHE WANTS TO EDUCATE EVERYONE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF DANCE AND DESPERATELY WANTS A DANCE NUMBER IN THE PLAY.

 

LUCY: SNEAKY, SILLY STUDENT WHO LOVES CHOCOLATE AND WHOSE ONLY CONCERN IS TO EAT. SHE ALWAYS HAS A CHOCOLATE BAR.

 

MILLIE: ALWAYS RUNNING LATE AND HAS AN EXCUSE FOR EVERYTHING. SHE IS A WHINY VICTIM  AND NEVER TAKES RESPONSIBILITY.

 

DARBY: PREFERS SPORTS AND IS ON EVERY SPORTS TEAM AT SCHOOL AND IN HER TOWN. SHE IS ONLY TAKING MS. CARMICHAEL’S CLASS BECAUSE SHE NEEDS THE CREDIT. HER ONLY GOAL IS TO GET THE PLAY OVER WITH SO THAT SHE CAN GO TO PRACTICE, THE GAME OR THE PLAYOFFS.

 

MAVIS: MONOTONE ACTRESS. NO MATTER WHAT PART SHE IS, SHE DELIVERS EVERY LINE VERY BORING, EVEN THOUGH SHE THINKS SHE IS EMOTING.
