Theatric Plays and Road Shows

I was in a road show for my Church group. The play was okay, Brother Brigham's Good News (at the Dance). It would have been better if people kept their little political and doctrinal biases out of it. The worst thing about doing a theatrical production for your larger congregation is that they all want it to be their version of G-Rated.

That is, no conflict in the picture at all. Or talking about history. Or if their view of history is messed up. Ironically, these are the same people that would sit down and watch a show like "The Godfather" or some other terrible movie with a R rating. It just doesn't seem fair that we can't reproduce history for a Church production, and yet Hollywood can (and mess everything up terribly).

But the production went so well. The performances were excellent, and everyone got into it on the last production. Not an A-1 play, but good enough to get the message across. Just not the message that we've hoped for in the beginning.

The script is under expansion, and I think I can screenwrite it for a movie production in a little bit.
