Once I Lived In Cottonwood — A Musical

Posted on May 12, 2017 in Latest, Musicals, New Releases

Book and Lyrics by John D. Rather and Susan Rather Music by Lynn G. Burton Available for Wards, and Stakes and Community Groups or Professionals Shortly after the first company of pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, Brigham Young began calling the new arrivals to settle towns throughout the West. Given a choice, most of them would have stayed in the Salt Lake Valley. Harder yet, after having started a home in the valley, was being called to start over again away from Salt Lake. Perhaps the hardest of all was being called to Dixie in Southern Utah. Cottonwood is about one family’s feelings when being asked to leave their home in Cottonwood and go south to Washington County. In a more general sense it is a story about people who, because of their allegiance to...

Book & Lyrics by Carol Lynn Pearson Music by Lex de Azevedo © Deseret Book Company, Licensed here exclusively, by permission The classic LDS musical is available once more for production by LDS Wards, Stakes and other groups! The tale of Orderville, Utah—1875-1885—where over 700 Saints lived and worked and played and prayed together in the United Order, a version of the Law of Consecration, seeking Zion, learning tolerance and patience, expanding “love” towards “charity.”  We see our own foibles and failings in those of the residents of Orderville as they learn the hard lessons of sharing, giving, getting along, and wondering how can I love my neighbor even when I can’t even stand him and after all I work harder than he does and my skilled work is worth more than his lowly weed-pulling.  And oh, it’s about...

God’s Fisherman — a One-man Play

Posted on Jul 7, 2015 in Classics, Latest, New Releases, One-Person Show, Plays

by Tim Slover and James Arrington (For production by Community Theatres, Professional Theatres and LDS Wards and Stakes) The story of Wilford Woodruff, a great missionary for the Lord Jesus Christ. Wilford Woodruff was a man who coupled his commitment with high spirits, boundless enthusiasm, and seemingly endless energy. This one man play tells the story of young Wilford on his various missions. How did he do it? There are glimpses in this one-man play: the unshakable commitment to the gospel and its appointed leaders, especially Joseph Smith, was a hallmark of his entire life. There were also his guilelessness and his humility, his ability to endure hardship, his dry sense of humor. Says, Wilford, “I fished in Arkansas and Tennessee! I fished on the isles of the sea! I fished in England twice, crossing the Atlantic Ocean four...

Compiled by R. Don Oscarson. (For production by LDS Wards and Stakes.) This little entertainment is a reconstruction of what an evening in the theatre would have been like for the citizens of Nauvoo in the 1840s. Music, Dance, Drama all combined for the delight of the Saints. Professionals were hired and locals conscripted, often involving the Brethren of the Twelve. The company, and sometimes the audience, would sing, dance and watch a performance headed by a professional with the locals added.

Prayers from Winter Quarters — A Short Play

Posted on Jan 29, 2014 in Short Plays

by Eric Samuelsen (For production by LDS Wards, Stakes and Community Groups. Colleges and Universities may also find it interesting.) While perfect for use by, say, a Relief Society for their monthly meeting, it can also be theatrically produced by a Ward, Stake or Community Theatre.  The topics associated with the play are: Prayer, Faith, Pioneers, Trials, Enduring, Being Thankful. It can be produced as a Reader’s Theatre or it can be memorized. It is very simple. No setting. No props. Costumes could be worn, or the characters could stay in modern dress. That might tie-in more closely the prayers from Winter Quarters with women of the modern day. For a Relief Society presentation, each prayer could be separately cast to involve more women.

Hancock County — A Play

Posted on Jan 27, 2014 in Award Winners

by Tim Slover (For production by Professional Groups, Community Groups, College & University Groups and LDS Church Groups) In 1844 the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were killed by a mob. The next year their accused assassins came to trial. Hancock County dramatizes that trial and the tensions between the Mormons, led by Brigham Young, and their enemies, who were trying to drive them from the state of Illinois. “Hancock County” is a very fine play; an intelligent, thrilling, tightly-drawn courtroom drama/tragedy that unfolds into a meditation on America, violence, and forgiveness. It bears comparison to Robert Bolt’s “A Man For All Seasons.” — R. W. Rasband of Association for Mormon Letters “Hancock County” moves swiftly from one scene to another, using and re-using minimal set pieces and props. It also employs the occasional dose of...

The Trail of Dreams — The Musical Classic

Posted on Jan 2, 2014 in Classics, Musicals

by James Arrington, Marvin Payne and Steven Kapp Perry   (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools,  ALL Church Groups, Youth Theatres) Some of us have the notion that the Mormon pioneers saw the world in bold strokes of black and white, while moderns squint through myriad shades of gray. In writing this play the authors found that the pioneers reflected a rainbow of passions, fears, dares and enormous presumptions. This is not the story of one family, or even one company. This is the story of all of the “Saints” brought across the plains by one man John Brown. It is through his memory, and the actual journals of the traveling pioneers, that this vibrant musical comes to life. There are bright moments of hope and moments of dreary tragedy punctuated by a fantastic...

The Seating of Senator Smoot — A Play

Posted on Aug 5, 2013 in Plays

by Eric Samuelsen (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, LDS & Other Church Groups) The plot centers around congressional hearings conducted early in the 20th century regarding the election of Reed Smoot, an apostle in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to the U.S. Senate. The major sticking point was, of course, polygamy — which Smoot did not practice. But it wasn’t  really Smoot who was under fire, it was the Church as this ‘practice’ was perceived to threaten family values. Most of the Anti-Mormon, Anti-Smoot issues were raised by Idaho Senator Fred Dubois and his wife. It is a dynamic play about personal integrity, religious hypocrisy and religious and political freedom and how those who seek to protect their own religious freedoms so often are the attackers of those freedoms for others.

Fire In The Bones — A Play

Posted on May 1, 2013 in Plays

a tragedy by Thomas F. Rogers (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, LDS Church Groups) This first ever literary treatment of the Mountain Meadows Massacre brings to light the complex and tragic circumstances that underlie the catastrophe that in 1857 cast a shadow on the Latter-day Saints.  Even today some church members fear to know the particulars, while agenda driven detractors only add to the general suspicion. Faithful to Juanita Brooks’ thorough and accurate scholarship, FIRE IN THE BONES completely exonerate Brigham Young as the massacre’s instigator, while still suggesting the tragic dilemma into which well-meaning persons, like John D. Lee, are sometimes thrust and the sacrifices that a community, right or wrong, may require of them.The play is a study in tainted conscience and mob psychology, of people’s paranoia in the wake of an anticipated...
