Scripts

One of the great advantages in writing for the theater is that one’s scripts can be, and should be, constantly reinterpreted. Jerry and Brian have both been lucky enough to have written a few audio skits that work extremely well for children and community theater groups. A few of the scripts have been translated into other languages, including Croatian and Chinese. How cool is that?

Contact us about use of these scripts for your group.

Here are samples of some our scripts that are available and have been produced by radio theater groups across the country and around the world:

Another of the best and most challenging things about theater is working with other people, other artists. Many times the whole of coming together over a project is worth more than the sum of the parts. Between the two of us we’ve worked as, and gotten paid to do, about every job in audio theater from directing to sound effects artist to script writing/adaptation to consulting. See the About Us page for some details.

Over our careers we’ve run into about everything and every situation in audio theater. We love working in audio theater.
