More About Ciao Venice by Squire Spicket
"Ciao Venice" by Squire Spicket is a theatrical script for middle school theatre (ages 11-14). Along the not so clean waters of the Venice Canal in a sidewalk trattoria, a mathematician calculates that Venice is about to sink into the sea. With panic, indifference, and a bit of mirth, the patrons devise a plan to warn others of the pending doom and evacuate the city. "Ciao Venice" combines mathematical errors, Archimedes' Principal, annoying tourists, and an idle gondolier to create a humorous and engaging story for aspiring young actors. 12 speaking roles with expandable cast options 30-40 minute performance time Royalty-free performance rights License to modify and make copies Limited set and prop requirements Ideal for schools and community theatre Squire Spicket scripts inspire creativity, promote the dramatic arts, and are teacher, parent, director, and producer friendly. Each script includes a nonexclusive performance license with royalty-free performance rights, subject to a $15/ticket price limitation, and rights to make nominal changes to the script, including dialogue, characters, characterizations, time period, and setting for performance purposes. Squire Spicket believes that each young actor deserves a part that he or she can perform successfully. Therefore, each script includes characters with a few lines, a lot of lines, and lines that can be read naturally from a script attached to a podium, clipboard, or other prop. Additionally, there are numerous "main" parts; no one performer is the star of the show and everyone receives a spotlight moment. The performance time for each Squire Spicket play is between 30-40 minutes; long enough to showcase the actors, but short enough to keep the audience engaged throughout the entire production. Each Squire Spicket script presents a number of intriguing topics to investigate, which help the actors appreciate the script and their characters.
