Enjoy a day at the ball field!

The Hammers are a minor league baseball team, beloved in their hometown of Hamburg.  Today is Hammer Day, when the local sponsors reward the loyal fans with prizes, so the fans are even more excited than usual.

Bobby, Mickey and Randy are good friends who hang out in the cheap seats and have fun.  Although nothing much happens in the cheap seats, they manage to catch a foul ball and even rescue a damsel in distress.

Sandy and Derek , also fans, were divorced but share custody of their Hammer seats.  Can they  sit together through a whole ball game without driving each other …and everyone else…crazy?

Lou runs the concessions, but has headaches of his own.  Jody is a brand new vendor who seems to have more enthusiasm than sense.  Rosie, Jackie and Ruthie are experienced vendors who are all trying to be top vendor, and who must come up with unique gimmicks to sell more.

Above it all, Bobert and Don are announcers who call the game and try to stay professional no matter what happens.

The Crowd of baseball fans brings excitement and energy to the play, and also serves as a pool of actors to step into other roles in case of emergencies.

 “The Hammers”  features an easily staged Jumbotron for great special effects.

"This play was very powerful and moving"

The 60's were a decade of great conflict in America.  The Vietnam War and the hippie counter culture were sources of much of this.  CONFLICT is the story of Vietnam vet Bob who suffers from PTSD and flashbacks.  the play starts at a hippie anti-war rally.  Although he is at the rally, Bob soon gets drafted and is torn about what to do.  His girlfriend, Moonbeam, tells him that they will go to Canada.  Instead, Bob goes to Vietnam where he meets other recruits from all across the nation.  Bob and his best friend Joe manage to have some fun, but also face horrors when Joe saves Bob's life, but then is killed.  Meanwhile, the hippie rallies go on, although some hippies are much more committed to the cause than others.  Finally the war ends, but when the soldiers come home, it is to jeers, disdain and insults.  

Years later, Bob and his daughter are at a Veteran's Day parade and are encouraged by a reporter to visit the Vietnam Memorial wall.  Here, in the moving last scene, Bob finally finds peace, touching Joe's name on the wall.

"Retreat!  Fall back!"  The play opens with George Washington's Continental army in full retreat....yet again.  It is the brutal winter of 1777.  However, even after Washington leads his army into winter quarters at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, the fighting does not end.  Instead of battling Redcoats, the patriots battle sickness, starvation, discouragement and doubt.  

  Teenagers Mary and Lucy, caught up in patriotic fever, decide to take some supplies to the army encampment, hoping to meet some officers.  Instead, they meet with a deserter who attacks them.  An army patrol rescues them, but Lucy is wounded so they are taken to a field hospital where they see deplorable conditions but meet Martha Washington. 

Meanwhile, Major Thomas Conway is seeking to get  George Washington replaced as Commander in Chief and tries to get others, such as the Marquis de Lafayette, to join him.  

Fights, surgeries and an on-stage flogging add action and excitement.  Historical figures add authenticity, and the end is a breathtaking scene that is sure to touch many with patriotic pride.

It is 1928 and the first talking movie has just been made.  Some people love talkies, some think they are just a fad, but very few people know how to make them.

Mrs. Hickenhoofer is the rich, ditzy owner of a studio that is making a silent movie about pirates.  When she sees a talking movie, she decides that Hickenhoofer studios must make a talkie as well.

Mr. Cobb the producer, Francine the director’s assistant, and Julius the director, try to make her see that they can’t turn a silent movie into a talkie, but Mrs. H refuses to listen.  Furious, Julius quits, and Buzz, a handymen who knows how microphones work, takes over as director.  The results are a disaster!  Nobody can figure out what to do with the microphones. Carl the cameraman refuses to work in the small, cramped “sound booth” and Gloria the Hollywood star/diva, finds that her voice sounds ridiculous on film and decides to retire.

Desperate to persuade Julius to come back, Mr. Cobb disguises himself as a gangster and threatens Julius into making the talkie.  Julius comes back and takes charge, but still has no leading lady.

They accidentally find a leading lady - Maria, the wardrobe assistant who speaks Spanish when nervous.  Julius calls for a rewrite of the whole movie, makes Maria a star, and even manages to get Gloria back for a non-speaking cameo – as a ghost!

Features lots of fun, unique characters, swordfighting, and fast-paced plot development.   Production Notes offer costuming suggestions and tips for obtaining and/or making several props.   Silent movie music is available.

The true story of Soviet women bomber pilots who flew and fought during WWII.

Nadia and Raisa are friends and teenage pilots who live in the Soviet Union in 1941.  When Germany invades, they join a women’s regiment being formed by the famous Soviet pilot Marina Raskova, and meet girls from all over the country who have come to be pilots, navigators and mechanics.  Marina Raskova and Major Yelena Smirnova must train the girls with inferior equipment and supplies, and often run into trouble with their commander, General Kozlov. 


Meanwhile German soldiers are advancing.  At first they are arrogant, thinking they will crush the Soviet Union and take Moscow without trouble.  Later they find that it is not as easy as they expected, between the Soviet women and the Russian winter.  They begin calling the women “Night Witches” because of the sound their planes make when they glide in to drop bombs.

The women are crushed when Marina is killed in a plane crash.  Her replacement is a man, Major Markhov.  But Markhov is capable and concerned about the girls’ welfare.  He demands much from them and teaches them self-defense.  After countless missions and heartbreak, the invaders are beaten back and the war draws to a close.   

Voice-overs add drama to battle scenes and German soldiers downstage pose a continual threat to the Russian women.  Features an easy-to-build on-stage airplane.
