Last year, my longtime publisher Pioneer Drama Service invited me to write a collection of scenes and sketches related to developing virtues and values for teens through young adults. We workshopped the 24 short plays at Colorado ACTS, and now, IT’S A BOOK!
The Scenebook of Values and Virtues launches Feb. 15. You can read the description and pre-order the book on Amazon if you CLICK HERE. Or, after Feb. 15, 2018, you’ll be able to order a copy from Pioneer Drama Service.
This was an immensely satisfying project. Special thanks to editor supreme Karen, also Steve, Debra, and Cindy. I think we can all be proud of this project.

This entertaining collection of 24 character-driven scenes will guide teens to make positive choices in their lives while developing their acting skills. Each selection presents a realistic scenario that explores multiple character-building values, such as acceptance, compassion, fairness, forgiveness, generosity, gratitude, honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and self-discipline. Each scene is then followed by student-tested discussion questions that can spark conversation about values, personal responsibility, and relationships. Delve into a diverse assortment of thoughtful topics presented in an engaging, lighthearted fashion. Scenes range from 5 to 10 minutes in length with cast sizes of 2 to 7. Use this book in any group setting to encourage meaningful, values-based dialogue. There s no other scenebook like this to help your students develop their own moral compass.
