McPherson High School in McPherson, Kansas is producing MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS for two performances, October 12th and 13th. It is one of five short plays in "Comedy Gold", and the only play by a female playwright.
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...
MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS is published in "The Best 10-Minute Plays for 2 or More Actors 2009" (Smith & Kraus) as well as in "30 Short Plays for Passionate Actors" by All Original Play Publishing.
It has been produced by high schools, colleges and community theatres in California, Texas and Washington state. This marks its Kansas premiere.
I also adapted the play into a short musical, MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS:The Musical, doing triple duty as the Book Writer/Composer/Lyricist. CDs are sold out, but downloads of the "fresh, pretty songs" are available on CDBaby

The full score, including libretto, lyric sheets, sheet music plus cast album CD with accompaniment tracks is available here.
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!
