WELCOME TO SPOTLIGHT PUBLICATIONS



So you want to put on a show …


….. but can’t, because of the lockdown? Theatres are shut, and drama clubs are struggling to keep going.

There is a solution:
video apps for conferencing and networking, for example Zoom. Many customers will be aware of this, and indeed may be already using them. They are ideal for drama clubs, whether you want to read a play or put on a production. You may not be able to do sets or music (though music is possible) but you can do costumes and makeup.

Full-length scripts present difficulties, but Spotlight mini pantomimes are ideal for video networking. We have eight mini pantos written by Peter Bond each of which lasts about 20 minutes. The titles are: Cinderella, Dick Whittington & his Rabbit, Rumpelstiltskin and Sleeping Beauty, all contained in the script Four Mini-Pantos, and Aladdin, Babes in the Wood, Beauty & the Beast and Snow White, in Four More Mini-Pantos. Peter’s scripts are all written in rhyming couplets; they’re witty and lots of fun, with some unexpected twists. Details are at the foot of the page and in the box top right.

We also have five longer mini pantos which last about 40-45 minutes. They are: Aladdin in Verse, Snow White in Verse, Cinderella in Verse and Sleeping Beauty in Verse by Dave Buchanan, and A Game of Panto Thrones by Cheryl Barrett.

Others are in the pipeline. For fuller details see below.

Munchkinland
From The Warren’s 2012 production of The Wizard of Oz Pantomime by Emma Houldershaw and Samantha Cartwright.

You might also consider Anthology, a collection of really short plays (average length 10-12 minutes, one of them’s only 6 minutes), which were written for performance in pubs:
Rear View by Dave Buchanan, Stonehenge by Peter Bond, Finkelstein’s Freak-Show & Circus by Jack Burgess, The Usual Table by Emma Houldershaw, BT or Not BT by Brian Freeland, Day One by Peter Bond, While Shepherds Watched by Jack Burgess, Visions by Jane Lockyer Willis, Casual-ty by Jack Burgess, Call Me Tamara by Ron Nicol.
For details, click Anthology.

Of course, one-act plays must be included. You can access Spotlight’s full collection by clicking One Act Play Scripts on the left.
