You know what my favorite part of being a playwright is? It’s actually when the script is out of my hands and in the care of a drama team. Especially a team of teenagers, who bring the story to life with care and energy and conviction.
White sheets for snow, Christmas tree skirts for capes, a tent for a cave. The White Witch in a wedding dress, and a three-year-old Aslan in a lion suit.
I was reminiscing last week as I rewatched video recordings of some of the first plays I ever acted in.
With Christmas just around the corner, the season for Christmas dramas is nearing its end. It has been delightful to see pictures and video recordings from some of our Kittywham plays performed this season around the country, from Colorado to Florida! And better yet, some of the recordings are still available online, so they’re continuing […]
I’m back in the office today after our whirlwind trip to Florida this weekend! Hobe Sound Bible Church’s 2018 Singing Christmas Tree is now history, but the recording is still available here on the church’s website for you to watch. I’m so glad they make a video recording of the show for long-distance viewing, but […]
Contrary to popular belief, we don’t think Pinterest is just a place for DIY projects and recipes. (Although, we admit, cheesecake photos are truly inspirational.) But pictures can provide inspiration in countless areas besides the culinary and home improvement arts. That’s why we’ve started a Kittywham Productions page on Pinterest, where we’re collecting photos to […]
I wrote my first play when I was fourteen. As you might imagine, it was rough. Quite rough. Some parts were implausible, others stilted, and others just ridiculous.

I regret not having had time to post on the blog this fall, but plenty has been going on at Kittywham Productions! I wrote a new Christmas play, The Twelve Months of Christmas, which had its premiere this December, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the production. Eventually, once I work through the […]
Last week, I was thrilled to be able to help out with the premiere production of my new play, The (Reimagined) Book of Daniel. The young people at Mode Camp performed the drama one week after being handed their scripts, and they did an amazing job! I’ll be posting more information about the play’s plot, […]
Andrew, age 23, acted as the stage manager for a production of Rejected: The Inside Story, and he’s been so kind as to share some thoughts about his experience. I hope you enjoy this “backstage” perspective that Andrew offers! What were your main responsibilities as stage manager, and how did you go about them? My […]
Here’s the third installment in our “Ask the Actors” video series! (If you missed them, you can find the first two videos here — Ask the Actors: Intro and Ask the Actors: Rejected.) This third video clip features three young actors who performed in a production of our drama Narrow Escape. The clip is short, but […]
