Get ready – we will be having our first script writing contest and the prize is worth putting pen to paper for. There is no limit to the number of scripts you can enter and each is a chance to win. (Scripts will be voted on by members so make them good!)

Full details will be in the September issue of the Spotlight – but the entry cut-off date will be October 15th – so if you are reading this, you can get an early start.

After the contest, the scripts will be added to a script vault exclusively for members. So you have a chance to win AND help create a resource that will entice more vents to join our ranks!

Nobody expects Jeff Dunham quality material – so just have fun with it and use it as an exercise to get better. If you need help – I have a script writing blog post on the Learn-Ventriloquism site at:

Good blog post but it didn’t answer my question:

Are the scripts supposed to represent chunks, or an entire show?

For example: ending of an act, opening an act, a chunk for inside the act?

Should the script take a some range of time to perform?

The instructions might help someone who already understands what a group of vents think of as “a script” but leaves newer persons a bit confused because a script can be for one portion of an act, like I have several opening chunks, each written for a slightly different situation but for my same puppet, I would think of each example as a short script in itself or as a piece of a script/show.

please could we get some clarifying details?

Ann, I don’t think it matters. You can submit whatever you’d like as long as it’s original. Oh, it should probably be funny too. 😂😂

Sorry I didn’t get back to this sooner Ann. Submissions of all types would have been fine. The scripts will be voted on by other vents – so it is really pot luck I guess. What is funny to one may not be funny to another.

Well, the scripts are out! Go and check them out. What I’m doing is putting a puppet on hand and reading through them. Go vote!

I did that and videoed myself. Then I watched back to videos to find my favourites.

Tim and Eddie– and all I did was read through them and choose.

Well, all the voting is done. I can say that I voted for one I thought was fun to do. I will say that yes I did put in an entry and did not vote for myself. The one I put in is a script I no longer do but it can be adapted to other characters. So now…we wait. Smile
