Dinner Theater Scripts Help You Reach Out

Looking for a way to introduce yourself to the community or for a non-threatening event to which your church can invite people?

Our dinner theater scripts are just the ticket to a fun-filled time with a bit of a message to make them want to come back for more.

Getaway to Chipaway follows three families trying to get away from the pressures of life while vacationing at camp. There, they find friendship and some practical answers.

It's a fun time for everyone with fun roles that can be filled by performers from your church and original music, so you don't have to hunt up songs and get copyright permission to perform them like with other dinner theater scripts. Chipaway is a full-length dinner theater (running about 90 minutes) and includes roles suitable for members of your youth group.

Reading copies of the script are just $15. If you decide you want to perform the show, the production kit at just $100 provides a CD with rights to produce up to four shows (more are available at an additional fee) copy as many scripts as you need, the music, chord charts and graphic art to use in your programs, posters and advertising.

Feedback we have received on the show:

"Fun, fast paced, great music. Loved it"
"I got goose bumps ... great laughs and the themes and developments were spot on."
"This generally isn't my kind of thing, but I really enjoyed this. Very fun, clever, well written and entertaining."
"Excellent messages beneficial for families."

We also have a script ideal for women's events called The Seasons of Friendship. This script is four sketches that follow the friendship of two women through the years. The script also provides the option of including songs or other elements in between the sketches and adding a speaker to deliver the message you feel is right for your event. Tap into the talents and gifts of the women in your church and reach out with The Seasons of Friendship at your next women's retreat or women's night out.

The reading script is $15. The production kit is $75.

In addition, Masterwork Productions offers workshops on producing your own dinner theater, whether you're an old pro or just in the "how do I do this?" stage. Check out all our offerings at http://www.masterworkproductions.org/. For more information, contact us at masterworkproductions@yahoo.com.
