Christmas Carol High School

Mark Landon Smith
The classic story of A Christmas Carol is given a modern twist and set at West End High School, where the campus Scrooge is Meredith Priestly, the most beautiful, most popular, meanest, nastiest girl in school! With uninterested and never present globe-trotting parents, the lead in the school production of Romeo and Juliet and Queen Bee of campus (or so she thinks!) is in need of a reminder of what Christmas and frienship are about. Visited by five ghosts -- two of which are Patty and Patrick Prince, two former West End Cheerleaders from the 1950's -- Meredith is taken on a life changing journey.

Pirate Show, The

Mark Landon Smith
Swashbuckling pirates, sea battles, buried treasure and a pygmy or two make up the high seas adventure of The Pirate Show! ARG! Set in late 19th century London, Nigel and Virginia Huddersfield, orphaned brother and sister, are living under the cruel Miss Persimmon Crudmudgeon. Fed up with their life, the brother and sister flee. Pursued by Crudmudgeon and her Constable boyfriend, Nigel and Virginia hide in pier side barrels, but they are separated as the all-female crew of the Pretty Penelope and the all-male crew of El Bandido Loco accidently kidnap them. Both crews are in pursuit of the treasure of Captain Mauvebeard and the Caribbean Ruby, buried on Pygmy Island. Upon arrival to Pygmy Island, the pirates encounter the pygmies, who have discovered the treasure and spent it! Devastated, the bands of pirates are thrilled when the pygmies inform them they have one piece of treasure left -the Caribbean Ruby. The pirates decide to join together, thus reuniting Nigel and Virginia. Once back in jolly 'ole England, Nigel and Virginia, along with their new pirate and pygmy friends, buy the orphanage and fire Crudmudgeon. A family oriented comedy, The Pirate Show completely sold out its premiere run! Great fun for all!
