Hello, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Bobby Keniston, and I would like to welcome you to Theater is a Sport, a blog about all things theater.
As those of you who are regular readers know, I have many plays published for the youth and high school market. I have one play called Rainbow and the Goofball, which I wrote about three years ago, and produced for Foxcroft Academy. It is a fairytale I invented about the world's first archaeologist, and the jester who loves her. I happened to think it was a great kid's show, and it got a terrific response when it was produced by FA. Kids loved it!
So you can imagine how disappointing it is that this is pretty much the only youth play I have in my drawer that has not been able to find a publisher. It has received excellent comments from everyone I have submitted it to, but I'm told that there just isn't room for it in their catalogues. I am still waiting to hear from one company about it.
Again, it is a show I'm very poud of, so I thought I would share the first part of the play with you here in this post. It is protected by copyright, so, yeah, don't be thinking you could get away with anything...
In any case, if you enjoy reading this excerpt, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to work anything out to have you read the rest of it, or if you would want to produce it, we could work something out.
Note: if I hear from the last publisher in the affirmative, I will remove this post immediately.
Okay, so enjoy PART I of Rainbow and the Gooball. If you're all really good and leave nice comments, maybe I'll post the rest of it some time. Let me know what you think in the comments (and, if you don't like it, that's fine, but don't be mean about it, please... anonymous mean comments are just kind of ridiculous in a world that's too good at being unkind).
OKAY, THANKS FOLKS. If you enjoyed this, let me know, drop me a line or leave a comment. If you didn't, that's fine, but don't bother bring me down. If you're interested in reading more, go ahead and ask me at email@example.com.

Until next time, please remember--- Theater is a Sport. Bye bye for now.
