Over the years, I have completed a number of playscripts. Some have been for my own amusement, a number have been written for College productions. And now I list them here for you. I don’t want money for them. I would like a copy of the video when you’re done, as well as modifications to the script. Eventually I’ll put in a versions section with acknowledgements from contributing authors.
Finally: the College productions are pantomine-y type plays. They are designed for a cast plus Year 7 chorus numbers. They are written specifically for boys, and we’ve used music from a number of sources – which is fine for a College with APRA paid up, but if you’re not a school you’ll need to change the songs or gain the right to use the music in your production of the script.
Scripts are in PDF and CELTX format. Celtx is a screenplay and authoring application which works across a range of devices. I love it. But I’m not paid to advertise it.
