I'm In Love With Her (Stage Version)

The Opening Scene of Steffanie's Micro Theater... in my dreams!


Steffanie's Micro Theater
Scene One: I'm In Love With Her


Characters and Costumes:

Steffanie
A petite, nineteen year old blonde. Dressed in a scruffy short denim skirt, black bomber jacket and black, military style boots.

Hazel
A petite, nineteen year old redhead. Barefoot and dressed in a long, slightly revealing, flowing white dress. (Think classical Greek nymph.)

Steffanie's Mother
An attractive, but rather dowdily dressed woman in her late forties.

Scenery and Props:
No special background features.

The props consist of nothing more than two scenery boards, the first being large and with the simplistic impression of a life size domestic kitchen painted on it. This board is placed in the center of the stage and set well back towards the rear.

The second scenery board has cartoon like clouds painted on it. The clouds, and whatever happens in front of them, will represent Steffanie's thoughts and dreams throughout the entire production.

The clouds are placed far stage right, and set just a little way back towards the rear.

Running Time:
Scene One: Estimated 4 to 5 minutes.

Scene One: Begin

The music slowly becomes a little louder.

Hazel floats across the stage to join her love. Hazel puts her hand under Steffanie's chin, raises her love's head and kisses her very softly on the lips.

Together they drift off stage, holding hands and looking happy.

Steffanie's mother stands shaking her head, watching the two young sweethearts departing together. She continues shaking her head, but by now has a gentle smile on her face.

Cue fading stage lights and music.
