Old Story With a Twist

Remembering Michael Cahill's wish to make this the Year of the Script here on Fanstory, let's write a script. To make the plot simple, choose a favorite well known story, a folktale, fable or fairy tale but give it your own flair and sense of humor. Be sure to include Cast and Scene information and identify each speaker.

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 40.00 member dollars. There are 8 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 72.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Friday, October 25, 2019.
