James Venhaus"Three Kings" - Boostraps Comedy Theatre

Request a Script

Theatres, producing organizations, and their representatives may request perusal copies of my plays free of charge. "Representatives" are not only artistic directors or those in the literary department. If you're a director, actor, or committee member who frequently works with a company and recommends scripts for production, I will be happy to send you a perusal script free of charge.

A student may request a free perusal copy of any play and I'll send it via e-mail free, under the special conditions below: To request a perusal script, please fill in the form below, and perusal script(s) will be forwarded to the e-mail address you authorize. E-mail perusal scripts are sent in a secure PDF format that allows you to read the script, but not print or save a copy. Once you acquire the rights to produce the play (see guidelines below) you will be sent a copy of the script that can be printed and copied.

Please note that Weird Sisters, Romeo and Juliet at Verona High and The Temple of Dionysus are published by Playscripts, Inc. Copies of those scripts and performance royalty information can be found at their website.

The First Christmas, Santa's Little Helper, Kringle-phobia, Three Kings and Happy Holidays from Anderson Davis Seton and Fenner are published together as a collection called, Stocking Stuffers by Original Works Publishing. Copies of this collection and performance royalty information can be found at their website.
