Play and Character Descriptions

“Fairytale Court” written by Leslie Kandt; directed by Faith Tonak – rehearses mornings

Snow White is taking her Prince Charming to court!  She has found out that he was seeing another woman behind her back; a woman named Cinderella!  Prince Charming accuses Snow of hanging out with other guys — seven short ones to be exact! She accuses him of waking her up when she was just trying to get some rest.  Snow White and Cinderella insist that Prince Charming deserves to be punished, and it seems like the judge might agree.


Judge Gold is an intelligent woman of the law, listening to everyone’s story and giving justice to those who deserve it.

Snow White is fed up with Charming and not taking anything from him. She’s independent and ready to take a stand. 

Cinderella, a sassy princess, is also ready to say farewell to Prince Charming and see that he gets what he deserves. 

Prince Charming is in love… With himself, mostly. Sure, he may comb his hair a little too often, but he’s SUCH a romantic, right?

“Pageturners” written by Evelyne Holland; directed by Julianna Martin; rehearses afternoons

“Pageturners” is a story about two siblings, Brooklyn and Tyler, who are just living another day in life but then a turn of events happen when a 18th century man appears in their bedroom. 


Brooklyn- teenage girl 

               – know it all type of person 

               – can snap

               – breakdown from trauma

Tyler- wants to help his sister 

        – has a chill out look on life


Obadiah- has English accent 

               – crazy

               – wants vengeance 

               – has a breakdown 

               – able to change emotions fairly quick 

“Turf Wars” written by Matthew Tonak; directed by Kara Garcia; rehearses evenings

The year is 1943. Chicago is ruled by mobs. Jim “Mad Dog” Gallo and Frank “Gunnar” Rivers are enemies. Mad Dog is the leader of the East side gang; Gunnar leads the West side gang. They struck a deal once — if they stay off each other’s turf, then they’ll keep the peace. Gunnar decides to break that agreement, which then starts the Turf Wars.


Jim “Mad Dog:” Leader of the East Side gang. Cocky and full of himself

The East Side gang — Scotty, Meaty, Baby Hands, Legless:  Dumb. Trying their best to be intimidating and scary. They all care a lot about Mad Dog.

Frank “Gunnar:” Leader of the West Side gang. Cold; a lot more heartless than Mad Dog, somehow. 

The West Side gang — The Dragon, Soapy: Also cold and heartless. Very vicious and animalistic.
