Our plays have been adapted from classical novels. These include the script of the play, a list of technical cues of all music and sound effects in scene order, author biography, story summary, character summaries, set and property list, costumes, and notes on casting and play adaptation. Where appropriate, the package also contains accompanying music and sound effects in cue order. These orginal classical music scores are not to be used for singing but as background music like a movie. We have striven to incorporate the original purity, literacy, and intent of the author with no dumbing down to appease contemporary standards.

The Secret Garden

Adapted from the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this is a truly beautiful and moving play adaptation that upholds, in every way, the purity and intent of the author. A classical musical score (not to be used for singing but as background music like a movie) and complete sound effects are included in the package. An additional sequence of music has also been included called The Enchanted Garden. This music may be used as an intermission piece or for choreographing a ballet dance scene. If you have some little children who would like to play fairies and gnomes, the music works wonderfully to bring to life the garden of Mary’s imagination. In our play adaptation, this scene takes place just before intermission so the play flows with or without its addition.

Story Summary: Mary Lennox, a young English girl, awakens one morning in colonial India to find her parents and all the house servants dead from a cholera epidemic. She is sent back to England to live with a cold, grieving and self-preoccupied uncle. In her aloneness she discovers a secret garden and becomes totally possessed of the idea that Colin, the crippled son of her uncle, will walk if he too can share
the Magic of the secret garden.

Cast: 14 female roles (6 principal/8 minor); 9 male roles (4 principal/5 minor)

Meet Me in Saint Louis

A bright, fast-moving comedy (not a musical) adapted from the original 3 Act dramatization by Christopher Sergel based on the novel by Sally Benson. The play is fresher and brighter than the Hollywoodized film version written around Judy Garland’s solos. Any repertory company will have enormous fun staging this play!

Story summary: The time is 1904. The place is St. Louis, Missouri. Mr. Lon Smith is a St. Louis businessman who has just been promoted to run the New York office. The news that his family must pack up and leave immediately comes just two weeks before the grandest event ever to take place in St. Louis - the opening of the World’s Fair.

Between the budding romances of his two oldest daughters, a love-struck collegiate son, and the delinquent mischief of his two youngest girls, Mr. Smith’s plans become “happily” foiled.

Wonderful musical sound effects accompany the play. The package also includes fabulous original pictures and engravings of the real St. Louis State Fair.
