10 minute comedy
A peaceful hotel dining room becomes a three-ring circus when an irate waiter, a loud and opinionated chef, and a small gang of singing servers take on a customer’s innocent question. Grandma’s side dish of peas never arrives, the chicken has an unusual smell, and when that meat ball goes rolling onto the floor only to be slurped up by a dog, maybe you just want to go home, skip lunch altogether, and have a big bowl of cereal.
Why we love this show:
- It’s a high energy hilarious show with lots of action and opportunities for actors to showcase their comedic skills.
- Fine singing is optional for the waiters who stage a boisterous, dramatic operatic scene in the restaurant. Bass, soprano, tenor, and alto voices, listed above, are mere suggestions, to create a pallet of sounds—highs and lows—to add to the comic mayhem.
- The director and cast have the opportunity to create within this small play an explosive and grand moment.
