Odd question.

I am looking for a duo piece that, in some way, no matter how minute, mentions ABBA.

Yes, ABBA.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance. <3

Gay acceptance/rights/stuff like that Duet? [May. 31st, 2007|04:51 pm]
Oral Interpretation Library
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of a Duet or Readers Theatre piece concerning the acceptance of gays. I got the idea from this quote I read and I was thinking about writing my own, but our Interp Coach said that the only things that could be original are Readers Theatres. So that's out. But I would still like to use that quote as an introduction. I wanted to get it organized this summer in preparation for the Interp season next fall. Here's that quote/introduction if it helps:

"An engineering professor is treating her husband, a loan officer, to dinner for finally giving in to her pleas to shave off the scraggly beard he grew on vacation. His favorite restaurant is a casual place where they both feel comfortable in slacks and cotton/polyester-blend golf shirts. But, as always, she wears the gold and pearl pendant he gave her the day her divorce decree for her last marriage was final. They're laughing over their menus because they know he always ends up diving into a giant plate of ribs but she won't be talked into anything more fattening than shrimp.
Quiz: How many biblical prohibitions are they violating? Well, wives are supposed to be 'submissive' to their husbands (I Peter 3:1). And all women are forbidden to teach men (I Timothy 2:12), wear gold or pearls (I Timothy 2:9) or dress in clothing that 'pertains to a man' (Deuteronomy 22:5). Shellfish and pork are definitely out (Leviticus 11:7, 10) as are usury (Deuteronomy 23:19), shaving (Leviticus 19:27) and clothes of more than one fabric (Leviticus 19:19). And since the Bible rarely recognizes divorce, they're committing adultery, which carries the rather harsh penalty of death by stoning (Deuteronomy 22:22).
So why are they having such a good time? Probably because they wouldn't think of worrying about rules that seem absurd, anachronistic or - at best - unrealistic. Yet this same modern-day couple could easily be among the millions of Americans who never hesitate to lean on the Bible to justify their own anti-gay attitudes."

If you have any that apply to that, let me know, I'd really appreciate it.

Oral Interpretation Library

I am in i crunch for time and I would really appreciate someone letting me know if they readily have a script available for me to use. BUying scripts and books online isn't an option that is why I am having trouble.

Looking for either humorous or dramatic M/F duo. Preferably dramatic.

Now I need a place to hide away [Jan. 22nd, 2007|04:30 pm]
Oral Interpretation Library


It is difficult to hide from the Beatles. After all these years they are still regularly in the news. Their songs play on oldies stations, countdowns and best-ofs. There is always some Beatles anniversary: the first No. 1 song, the first time in the United States, a birthday, an anniversary, a milestone, a Broadway show. Read more...Collapse )

Oral Interpretation Library


I have a tournament next weekend with an event called "Interp"....where we do Drama, Humor, and Poetry.  Since I've never done ANY of those before, I've been looking through this site for ideas and such.  I was wondering if anyone knew any pieces for any of these events that I could use, ESPECIALLY humor because that's the one that I haven't found any for yet....and I don't even know what is expected of these categories since I usually do OO.  any help I can get is appreciated =)

in need of female HI or m/f duet [Jul. 30th, 2006|10:20 pm]
Oral Interpretation Library
[mood |groggydreading band camp!]
[music |"wilted rose" -- the vanity project]

Hola! I'm an incoming HS junior, and I'm in desperate need of an HI or Duet. School starts in a couple of weeks, and I have no idea what I want to do!

If it helps:
*I have a slight lisp -- silibate "s," meaning I pronounce "s" as "th" -- so if there's a piece out there that can incorporate a lisp into it, that's pretty great
*I'm small -- 5'1 and 110 lbs -- and can be thrown around and picked up a lot
*I have a very high-pitched, nasally voice
*I'm best with the over-the-top, ridiculous stuff (think Brick Tamland from Anchorman)

Any ideas? They'd be greatly appreciated!

Here's hoping I make it to State again this year!

Hi, I'm looking for a really good HI or DI (as long as its not a rape/holacaust/murder/bulima/abusive spouse/schizophrenia/midlife-crisis/depressed/suicide pieces). I've got all summer, but I'd like to get going on things now. Any suggestions of pieces that have worked well in the past or where to look for a good one?
