» Believe – A Christmas play performed several times to rave reviews. It’s about a young girl who is growing up while learning to live a life which requires her to use a wheelchair…but for one magical day, Christmas, Santa visits her in her sleep and asks her to come help him in his workshop with a toy soldier who has special needs…he has no confidence in himself. Can’t even hold up his head, and his uniform looks all crooked. Santa knows that SHE can give him the confidence he needs…and she learns to dance…yes, he becomes her partner. Both learn some very important lessons about never giving up.

» It’s More Than Black or White – This play (or sections of this play) have been performed locally for community and schools. The greatest achievement was for it to be accepted in the competition world wide by the Alexander S. Onassis International Theater Competition, in Athens, Greece (2001).

» The Bottle Tree – Several versions of this play (adult and children) have been performed at both community events and schools.

» Bessie Bland’s Hat Shop – (In time capsule for the city of Milledgeville, GA 31061 to be opened at the celebration of the birthday of Milledgeville – year 2053) The play included a tea party, where unusual or very important teacups were displayed with historical information provided. Was quite a hit. I’ve included some precious pictures of this event. Also, included was local art by artist, Carol Chaklos (deceased), who was a great friend. Dr. Bob Wilson of the history department of Georgia College, Milledgeville, GA was the Master of Ceremony. If you have ever been blessed enough to have him work with you, you know exactly what I mean. It’s truly an experience you will never forget. (November, 2002) Thanks, Dr. Wilson.

These plays were about local people and carried a local theme (from our world champion fiddle player, Randy Howard, to Nylic, the name of the local young woman responsible for writing a letter to the New York Life insurance Co. which resulted in a local church getting their organ replaced after it had been destroyed by Union soldiers during the Civil War.
