Congratulations to Val whose work Candyland (pdf format) was produced. A young woman inherits a strip club. She refuses to sell it to a rival, a brutal club owner. Instead she manages it while secretly donating profits to her church to fund a new daycare center. 100 pages
Val’s work was adapted to the stage by Merle Miller who writes, “I read this script as a screen play [on SimplyScripts] and thought it would make a great stage play… I contacted Val and got the go ahead, last month. I rewrote the script, secured a cast, and we just finished producing it (April 24, & 25, 2009) in less than 8 weeks from start to finish, at our small theatre in Laporte Indiana, and it was a big hit. Everyone was amazed at the hot air balloon scenes on stage. Some pictures and info are available at our website www.washingtonstage.org, and a Laporte Herald-Argus newspaper article on April 23, 2009.
Val was great to work with over the internet and phone. I wish her a lot of good luck in the future and look forward to seeing [Candyland] on the screen, or on broadway.”
Merle Miller, Washington Stage Theatre, Laporte Indiana.
