Northern California Comedy Variety Show Seeks Scripts for GREED!

Janet Grace Riehl, author of “Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary” wants to let our writing community know about this writing opportunity:

Comedy on Tilt, an old-fashioned comedy variety review show based in Lake County, California, seeks scripts, stories, poems, and songs on the theme of greed for their 2007 show at the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum for four evening shows August 17, 18, 24, and 25.

Artistic Director Daniel Holland will work with writers who submit scripts selected to be staged for the 2007 show in August. Skits last between 5-20 minutes (between 450 to 3,500 words).

“We are looking for witty and perceptive comic commentary on how greed shows up in daily life,” says Holland, “not greed as a subject for political satire. What happens when we want more than our fair share and muscle in to get it? We believe that the big problems coming from greediness begin from these ordinary human situations.”

Holland will choose up to five scripts, based on length. Skit authors are credited in the Comedy on Tilt show program and the Riehl Life blog. Both video and digital photography documentation will be available for the skit author’s portfolio. Submit your skit scripts, stories, poems, and songs (and song suggestions) to Call (707) 279-1559 for more information.
