Hi! I am Jeannette Jaquish and I write great scripts. Every actor gets good lines. My scripts have action-packed plots with ridiculous, sometimes edgy humor, suspense and danger, and often twist endings.

If you need your script altered -- characters added, length changed, edgy parts made mild -- JUST ASK! and I will probably do it free or approve your change.

I give you these free script because I know what it is like to have zero budget and too little time, and a hodge-podge of actors, perhaps some of whom do not want to be there. Give them a fun challenge and you will get best results.

Produce these free simpler, shorter scripts, and soon you will have an experienced troupe to move up to my affordable, more complex scripts like Wizard of Oz, The Frog Prince, Don't Look in the Lake, Dr. Frankenstreudel's Lemon Fresh Laboratory of Horrors and LOTS more.

Often the script includes Tech Notes, poster art, and for a reasonable price music on CD or thumb drive or internet delivered.
