Reach Out with Easy-to-Produce Dinner Theaters

If you are looking for a creative way to reach out to your community this summer or next Fall/Winter, Masterwork Productions dinner theaters are a great way to communicate while having a lot of fun.

Getaway to Chipaway follows three families escaping the problems of every day life on a camping vacation. There they find friendship and hope. This fun, family-friendly script comes with a message and original music by artist Bill Cooper, so you don't have to spend time tracking down songs or getting copyright permissions to perform them. It's ideal for drama teams and youth groups. To order a review copy of the script and a demo of the songs, click here or email us at masterworkproductions@yahoo.com. Production kits also are available.

  • "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."
The Seasons of Friendship follows the friendship of two women from the time they meet until they have to part and all the seasons they weather in between. Just perform the sketches as an offering or add music, other presentations and even a talk as guided by the script. This is ideal for women's events, women's retreats or a Sunday sermon series. Use the talent you have in your church and gear the message toward the audience you are trying to reach. This is hot off the presses!
