MY FAIR WEATHER GIRL - NOTES - written by Tanis Harms
(Ideal for dinner theater. Actors can be the waiters.
Create bios and have prepared lines to stay in character.
EXAMPLE PROGRAM: main course, ACT 1, dessert, ACT 2)
PREMISE: EVELYN’S accent does not seem to blend
. with what is acceptable in society’s eyes.
. A professor of linguistics takes up
. the challenge to improve her speech, and
. although helpful, his attitude towards her
. is extremely rude. EVELYN must rise above
. his bullying and not let him influence
. her own attitude towards others.
STYLE: comedy-musical spoof of “My Fair Lady”
TOPIC: be in the world, not of the world,
. and do not show preferential treatment.
SCRIPTURE: Romans 12:2, James 2-3
BACK TO SCRIPT
NOTE: I’ve made up an accent so as not to
. offend anyone. Characters who use
. this accent should speak it fluently
. so it sounds natural, and thereby,
. sounding like they mean what they say.
. The intended words will be in brackets
. to assist actors in determining motives.
. Don’t TRY to be cute or funny with it-
. make sure to speak very sincerely –
. which will then enhance the humor.
