Redwood High School in Larkspur (Northern California) is producing MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS as part of their upcoming One Act Festival. The student director found the play in THE BEST 10-MINUTE PLAYS 2009, the Smith & Kraus anthology. (Another one of my plays, SUPER 8 VERSUS BACARA RESORT AND SPA, is also in that book). Play books may be ordered through PayPal on the Store page.
Storyline: A single woman turning 40 can't wait any longer for a Tiffany diamond and visits Tiffany's Beverly Hills with her married friend, where they meet a handsome but nerdy salesman who encourages her to try on an $84,900 ring, which gets stuck; Romantic Comedy.
I adapted MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS into MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: The Musical, writing Book, Music & Lyrics. MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: The Musical ran for 10 performances in North Hollywood as part of the Secret Rose Theatre’s “Mini Musical Fest”. Please see the review by BroadwayWorld.com on the Reviews page.
MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: the Musical charted as Top Album on CD Baby's Show Tunes and its 3 songs charted #1, 2, 3 on Show Tunes, as well as #1, 2, 3 on Musicals/Broadway. All songs are available for purchase on CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon (see Store).

Personal note from Stephanie:
It means more to me than I can express when people support my art by attending shows and purchasing books and music. God bless you, one and all, and see you at the theatre!
