Looking for a Laugh Out Loud Season? Try Theatre Restaurant!


Tgail2heatre Restaurant. We’ve all been to at least one in our lives, enjoyed a meal and a good belly laugh at a table load of friends. For Community Theatre groups, these scripts (and performance rights) are not expensive, less complicated to produce, and popular with audiences. All of which equals dollars in the coffers towards much bigger productions. As we leave the One Act Play Festivals behind, many groups love staging an hilarious Theatre Restaurant season as an alternative to a Christmas Musical – all you need to do is add the songs of your choice to our scripts and you have a show! I’ve always known that if you put a man in tights and thrust him out onto a stage, the laughs flow before he utters a line.  Happy browsing. Gail DenverHere are our most popular (and you can view free samples here) including of course plenty of parts for actors in tights!
