10 minute wordless play with music
1 man, 1 woman
Phyllis and Charlie are next door neighbors. Every night is the same. She dances in her apartment; he reads the newspaper in his.
What’s different tonight? Tonight, he gets in on the action, humming along and tapping his feet to the swinging beat of Glenn Miller. Fred Astaire’s crooning “Cheek to Cheek” inspires Fred to take things to the next level. He foxtrots to his closet, pulls on the jacket of an army uniform and heads over to Phyllis’s door to wordless ask her hand for a dance. After a few tentative steps he is whirling her around the floor and before long the couple is dancing cheek to cheek. Sweet, visually interesting show that you and your audiences will love!
“My husband Al and I performed Sgt. Levy’s Lonely Hearts Club at a variety show twelve years ago when we moved into a senior community. People still stop us all the time on the street to tell us how much they enjoyed it, and ask if we’re going to do it again.” — Joanne Underwood, Mission Viejo, Calif.
