If you enjoyed May I Have Your Attention, Please? and you’re looking for a dark comedy, look no further. Not only might it be the perfect script, it is FREE for the first 50 escript requests. What better way to start off the year? Looking For Mr. Right, 2f 7m, doubling possible, published by Brooklyn Publishers.
SYNOPSIS: Charlotte Walden wants Mr. Right, and she wants him right now! After dumping her boyfriend because he can’t run fast enough to avoid standing her up on their wedding day, Charlotte devises a new strategy for finding a husband fast. Several suitors show up at the Walden Estate after she places a husband wanted ad in the local paper, but will any of them be able to pass all the tests that await them? The audience will be rolling in the aisles as the contestants compete in such zany events as breaking glass with their voice and disguising themselves to look just like Charlotte. This play is full of twists and turns, but in the end, only the ‘Wright’ man can win.

The show was performed for the International Thespian Society by Cardinal Gibbons HS in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. It was student directed.
One year I had an extremely talented and driven group of drama students who were able t0 go beyond plays for the stage. They made, May I Have Your Attention, Please? into a movie and showed the final product at the Tri-County Cineplex. This was a wonderful way to bring the message to a larger community. I am including a short introductory clip of that production. Special thanks to Principal Allen Storie for his support for the project and to Larry and Sherry Harris for opening their home for the filming. #Theatre4Change
I found this clip while going through tons of saved dvds from my years of being a public school teacher. In this interview which aired as part of the school’s tv news, I talk about the benefits of a class called VPA. I always thought teaching was a natural extension of my love for the arts. This interview will give you a glimpse in to the, “teacher” me. The entire newscast appears in the second video.
The Dinner Club remains one of my favorite full length plays with a running time of 100 minutes. It takes place in Josie’s Red Grill and cast is 4f and 5 m. The video contains a clip from a live performance in 2005 by Knox Central High School. This would be a great dramatic script for a high school, college or community theatre. The play deals with issues of diversity, domestic violence, tolerance and disability awareness. For a limited time, this is a royalty free option. If you are looking for a piece to address any or all of these issues and are on a budget, this may be your answer. Email author@MayIHaveYourAttentionPlease.com for more info. #Theatre4Change
2/7/2017 BOLD SCHOOLS OLIVIA, MN – May I Have Your Attention, Please?
I am always honored to have the message of May I Have Your Attention, Please? spread via the stage. It has been an effective way to reach out to large audiences at one act festivals and community performances. Another way to spread the message that also makes me proud is when teachers decide to use the script as part of their curriculum. This also is a way to reach out to many students and being a former High School teacher, it is a way I can attest to firsthand as effective. So however you spread the message, consider adding the script to your curriculum as yet another way of spreading the message of #Theatre4Change. We’ve reached 25 states, 3 Canadian Provinces and Scotland. Thank you to all who continue to share this message and recommend the play to your friends.
