"Magpie Pie" by Squire Spicket is a theatrical play set in Pie Town, New Mexico, where the Annual Pie Town Pie Bake brings out the competitive spirit in area bakers. Desperate to be crowned the "Queen of Pie," one baker takes extreme measures to undermine the competition. Magpie Pie bakes small town gossip, magpies, microeconomics, and Pi together in one pie pan to create a humorous and engaging story for aspiring young actors to perform (ages 11-14). 23 speaking roles with expandable cast options 30-40 minute performance time Royalty-free performance rights License to modify and make copies Limited set and prop requirements Ideal for schools and community theatreSquire Spicket scripts inspire creativity, promote the dramatic arts, and are teacher, parent, student, director, and producer friendly. Each script includes a nonexclusive performance license with royalty-free performance rights, subject to a $15/ticket price limitation, and rights to make nominal changes to the script, including dialogue, characters, characterizations, time period, and setting for performance purposes. Squire Spicket believes that each young actor deserves a part that he or she can perform successfully. Therefore, each script includes characters with a few lines, a lot of lines, and lines that can be read naturally from a script attached to a podium, clipboard, or other prop. Additionally, there are numerous "main" parts; no one actor is the star of the show. The performance time for each Squire Spicket play is between 30-40 minutes; long enough to showcase your students, but short enough to keep the audience engaged throughout the entire production. Each Squire Spicket script presents a number of intriguing topics to investigate, which help the actors appreciate the script and their characters.
