The Plays

WAITING by Elyne Quan

What happens when time has passed and you return to where you last saw a good friend, hoping to see them again? Filo is about to find out.

BIG EARS by Chris Dodd

Maggie has a really big secret which she likes to keep under her hat: the fact she has enormous ears. Upon moving to a new town and starting a new school, she realizes that keeping her secret from being found out will be a lot harder than she thought. However, Maggie soon discovers what she thought was a disadvantage is actually an advantage thanks to those big ears.


Last Halloween, a trick was played
Now near a year, as Bertie finds 
That nightmare’s back again 
But life is both the good and bad
As Elders sure do know 
Just take a breath, and look around 
Find beauty where you go
