My 10 minute play “A Date with an Anime Princess” will be presented by Carrollwood Players as part of their One Act Weekend on August 26 – 28, 2011.
The backstory for the play involves Princess Luna Kitty, a fictional anime series about a schoolgirl who is also a warrior princess. Sound familiar? I wanted to write a comedy and “Anime Princess” is what came out.
Of course, an anime needs a theme song, so I wrote one. A couple of verses of the song is sung by one of the characters in my play, and although it’s sung a capella, I wrote the melody. Actually, I went all out and created the entire song with orchestration.
I thought it came out good, but I’m biased. I hope it’s okay. It is meant to be simple and silly – just right for a Saturday morning cartoon show – no offense to anime fans.
