In MEET ME IN DISNEYLAND, Arlene (in her Pinocchio costume) is getting ready to juggle oranges in the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade. Her concentration is disrupted by the arrival of Dan, her would-be suitor, an amateur impressionist who tries to charm her by pressing his claim in voices ranging from Richard Nixon to Richard Burton, with a host of unlikely characters in between. Arlene is amused—if not bowled over—but she agrees to meet him after the parade—and what more can a fellow ask? (1 man, 1 woman.) In IT'S A SMALL WORLD, a man and a woman are stalled in a ride of the same name and strike up a conversation. He is enjoying a day off; she is revisiting the place where she spent her last hours with her mother before "Big Mamoo" suddenly decided to join the Peace Corps and go off to Africa. One thing leads to another, and they soon decide that it is indeed a "small world" as they exchange confidences and quickly realize that they were meant for each other. (1 man, 1 woman.) DISNEYLAND ON PARADE finds Louis (dressed as Prince Charming) and Jane (costumed as a mouse/coachman) in a rather sticky situation that develops when she accuses him of (a) getting her pregnant and (b) being infatuated with Laurie-June Stern (the Cinderella of the Parade). In the end it all works out when Jane, coming to her senses, realizes that the man she really loves is Stuart (also known as Goofy). (1 man, 1 woman.)
First presented by the Ensemble Studio Theatre in Los Angeles. Three offbeat and very funny short plays that deal with incidents that could happen only in that supreme example of American escapism—Disneyland.
