Here is the play adaptation of my book, Bumbling Bea.
I’m one of those people who do what they say they are gonna do.
I am adapting Bumbling Bea into a play! (I feel we need trumpets blaring and hi-steppers stepping….This is HUGE people. )
Now you would think this would be an easy feat for me considering how many years I have directed plays.
Nay, nay I say. ( I heard this on the radio one day and it cracked me up.)
I’m stalling, I know.
Directing plays since the dawn of man does make my job easier. It’s a laborious process, however. It takes me about two hours to adapt four to eight pages of the book version. Then I poop out.
Note: This is the first draft of the scene. I haven’t given you a cast list, or description of the set. For those of you who are familiar with the book version, I think you’ll be able to easily follow the play. At least, that’s my hope.
PLEASE BE KIND.
Here it is the play adaptation of Bumbling Bea:
Act one, Scene one. Enjoy!
Note #2: I’m seeking beta readers for the play. Would you be interested in helping? Just think–someday when it is published you can say you helped make it into the terrific play it is destined to be.
I’m a fan of the play version of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Bumbling Bea the play is loosely patterned at it.
Also, this is family fair. I expect to see youth theater and community theaters producing it.
I honestly think Bumbling Bea will have much success in play form.
Daring words coming from the cautious me.
Are you looking for a new play to workshop? I’m very interested in working with a drama class or youth theatre program and crafting Bumbling Bea, the play.
I have experience in working with new plays. About twenty-nine years ago, I co-developed a national playwriting contest for youth theatre plays.
I know what is needed and I know how to make it happen.
