Learn all the tricks of the trade to become a real pro playwright!

Follow along with the story behind the song of John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, all while learning everything you need to write your very own play.

Start with the plot. In this case, two fellas have the same unique name and aren't very happy about it.

Figure out your cast of characters. Divide the story into scenes. Create stage directions, dialogue, scenery, and everything in between.

With each page is a perfect example of each tool, illustrated in text, dialogue, and vibrant pictures.

There are even exercises for writing and a glossary of stage vocabulary, so you'll really know what you're doing.

By the end of the story, you'll feel more than prepared to create your own plot, figure out your own characters, and get all your friends and family acting and participating in a play that YOU wrote!

Get a real grasp of the world of the stage with Action!: Writing Your Own Play.
