Clowns, Dr. Jellyfish, Rock and Roll, Stickybuns and Japanese Schoolgirls
It’s just another year with Over Our Head Plaers’ SNOWDANCE 10-MINUTE COMEDY FESTIVAL
Racineâs Over Our Head Players has been running its annual Snowdance 10 minute sketch comedy festival for a number of years nowâlong enough to have garnered some major attention for the festival from aspiring funny people. This yearâs competition received a festival record 260 scripts from 36 different states and a couple of countries outside the U.S. The players have chosen 11 of the skits for production including:
Japanese Schoolgirl Nightâan entry from Massachusetts-based James McLindon involving an explanation to a professor.
Dr. Jellyfish O.B. by Mark and Brooke Miller of Racine. Sounds like a comic hospital drama involving a rash of rashes.
The Fruits of WarâAlso from California.
Clown TherapyâMarriage counseling is an oddly easy format for sketch comedy. This one was good enough to get picked-up . . .
And so on. Snowdance takes its commitment to producing original comedy seriously. (It says so right in the festivalâs press release.) This being the case, it wouldnât trust the winers of the festival to anyone less than the people itâs aimed atâits audience. Audience members over the course of the festival (which opens on the 28th) vote for their favorites. The author of the Best In Show gets $300, with $100 going to second and third place entries.
