More About The Third Giant Leap by Squire Spicket
"The Third Giant Leap" by Squire Spicket is a theatrical play set on the surface of the Moon. When the Intergalactic Construction and Colonization Company prepares to colonize Mars, hopeful applicants from the Lunar Alpha, Beta, and Gamma colonies compete for a position on the team. Undermined by disgruntled space cadets, the interviews go unquestionably wrong.

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 your students, 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. "The Third Giant Leap" includes the following: Astronomy (i.e. constellations, asteroids, planets, solar flares, the Milky Way, etc.) Space research, travel, and colonization efforts Space in fictional settings (i.e. Krypton - Superman's home planet) The Honeymooners Boon docks, space cadets, and moon pies Arachnophobia (fear of spiders) Gravity, zero gravity, and gravitational experiments Space shuttles and stations Democracy Methane gas, power generation, and natural resources The Apollo 11 mission to the Moon Geology Fields of medical research and practice Fields of engineering Botany, greenhouses, and insect pollination Phases of the Moon Grammatical inconsistencies of speech v. prose Conspiracy, bribery, and sabotage From Squire Spicket to your group of young actors, break a leg
