Royalty Free Plays: Author releases several comedy play scripts to new plays on a royalty-free license for a limited time.
The decision to release the royalty free plays for wider performance has been positive and comes as popularity builds for the pieces. Comedy, silliness and real life situations are addressed and the opportunity to open a door to aspiring actors interested in interpreting and experimenting with the dialog.
DeGaetano, in addition to his background as a business advisor, is known for his management over the artistic look and casting of the performances he directs for the stage. He often employs the same stark, simple lines and color while often reflecting in the characters to at times set in unusual surroundings and movement.
In a recent interview, DeGaetano said that he encourages people to adapt these new stories any way they see fit. “They can make it an musical or perform it with six or eight characters,” he said. “I’m really interested in the future of the theatre as a place that grows more community support and fosters creative talent of all ages. Theatre should be an open place where interesting, entertaining things happen. It really doesn’t have to be an epic drama to be great.”
The royalty free plays for limited performance purposes are now available on Amazon, and are also featured in greater detail on the website. The titles include; The Fat Man, Situation in Safe Haven, Once Upon a Crime, Average Joe and a brand new Sherlock Holmes adventure in Sherlock Holmes and the Princess Jewel. DeGaetano said he’s heard from a few that are considering performing the pieces with their own twists and encourages more inquiries.
