I have written, produced and directed three plays that have premiered with the Southern Hills Community Theater of Hot Springs, SD. All of the plays are family-friendly, with a focus on broad age ranges, flexible roles, opportunities for both comedy and dramatic acting, and a guaranteed fun time for the cast, the crew and the audience.

Summary: Take a step back in time to 1942 as Nancy, manager of radio station KRGO, prepares their first-ever performance of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” But it’s 30 minutes to showtime and a treacherous snowstorm has prevented half the chorus from arriving, the Cratchit children are stuck at home, the sound effects man has come down with the flu, and the famous (but pretentious) Hollywood actor who’s supposed to draw in listeners hasn’t attended rehearsals all week! Down to a skeleton cast, can Nancy put on the best show of her career in this funny, high-spirited play with a whole lot of heart?
