Papa Married A Mormon • The Play

Posted on Jul 17, 2019 in Family Audience Plays and Musicals, Intergenerational Theatre, Plays, ZT DC Hist, ZT Plays

by John D. Fitzgerald. Adapted for the stage by Rodger D. Sorensen. (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, LDS & Other Church Groups) Papa Married a Mormon is like a family patchwork quilt worn threadbare from use. It becomes more familiar and warm each time you pick it up and wrap yourself in it. Like a quilt, Sorensen’s theatrical adaptation brings us close to these characters — who are not threadbare at all — and wraps us in the kindness of their charitable lives.

Posted on Jan 25, 2014 in Short Plays

by Eric Samuelsen (For performance by Professional Theatres, College and University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools) Have you ever attended a play where the actors seemed to do absolutely nothing?

This script is a perfect blend of improvisation and control. You’ll have fun… and so will...

Posted on Mar 14, 2013 in Premiere Musicals

Book, Music and Lyrics by James G. Lambert & C. Michael Perry (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, Church Groups, Youth Theatres) A love story, like all operettas, in the style of “New Moon”, “Desert Song” and “Naughty Marietta”. But this one is set in the romantic atmosphere of the California Gold Rush. It spins the tale of the dashing Mexican-American Robin Hood figure of Joaquin Murietta. The Hermanos de Murietta, a band of Vaqueros, have been recovering gold from the corrupt bankers and profiteers and returning it to the rightful owners, the miners. However, as all heroes do, Joaquin falls in love with the lovely Jennifer Wells, the banker villain’s daughter, and the plots interweave as the story winds its way to a happy conclusion, like all operettas. PLAY DETAILS: 17 M 6W...
