Getting Ahead by Meredith Yanchak

A glimpse into the all too real world of high school academics: Eddie is new to the ultra-competitive world of Northwood High School. While he struggles to catch up to his current classmates after moving across the country, privileged Riley can’t keep up with the expectations placed on her by her family. Meanwhile, Madison – an unexpected talent from a single parent home – is sailing to the top of her class. Riley finds a way to get – and stay ahead – by breaking the school’s academic honor code, and in so doing, takes down an unsuspecting Eddie.

MANY SNOWS AGO by Midge Guerrera

In story theatre fashion, the play brings the fables of the Eastern Woodland Indians to life. Stories range from the creation of the world, the clans, European Explorers to ritual. Many Snows Ago is based on the extremely short tales of the Lenape and other Eastern Woodland People. The dramatization and embellishment of these tales was done to engage today’s young audience while still imparting the wisdom of this noble group of people. Perfect for schools and actors of all ages.

Shakespeare and the Muses by Rebecca Salomonsson

William Shakespeare is having a bad day. After a bad review, he doubts his ability to write. As he laments his choice to be a playwright – and considers turning to glove making like his father – he is visited by the nine Muses of Greek mythology.  The Muses guide him through the stories that will become his source material for new ideas and leave him feeling inspired and ready to put his quill to paper again. Shakespeare and the Muses is an exploration of Greek mythology, Shakespeare’s works, and the question of where writers get their ideas from.

This is Not a Drill by Laurie Allen

“Lockdown!  Lockdown!  This is not a drill.”  When the announcement is made over the speaker, several high school students rush into an empty classroom and lock the door.  There is no teacher – just them.  Students who previously ignored each other in the hallways are now forced to communicate and band together to survive.  Personalities clash and tensions rise as they deal with the unknown.  Will they open the door when someone knocks and pleads to come inside?  And most importantly, will they come out alive?
