    Default Working on a Dinner Theater that includes Island Survival - seeking your input

    Long time no post. Really long time. Took on a new job about 3 years ago that seriously cut into my leisure time. Still lurk every now and then, though.

    Check this out ...

    My Church is putting on a Dinner Theater that takes place on a cruise ship. I play a character that has been stranded on a remote Caribbean Island for a year. I need some really funny but plausible material about what it would take to survive for a year totally alone on a small island. I realize that there will certainly be some "Gilligan" references, but I would like to keep those to a minimum.

    I know that this forum is inhabited by a tribe of comedic geniuses, so ... ideas?

    Will "Wilson" be making an appearance? Or what about Flipper?

    You could have the idea of lassoing some sea turtles to ride back to land using hair from your back as the ropes.

    Find a bottle on the beach with a paper inside...."Due to lack of maintenance, we regretfully have found it necessary to cancel your e-mail account."

    The only thing you have is a hammock on an island with one tree.

    You find six bottles washed up on shore. "Oh great, I must be on a mailing list."

    There's one old weather worn sign on the small deserted island. It reads, "No trespassing".

    You know what....I don't care what Tom Hanks would do.

    Wilson! Head hunters turned you into a shrunken head! Oh the humanity!

    You have three pet crabs. Larry, Moe and Snappy.

    I just have to think positive. At least I won't be bothered by Polar Bears.

    I wonder if there's a coconut recycling center around here.

    There. I had just enough rocks to spell out S.O.S. Oh, heck I spelled it backwards.

    Unless you're on the same island as the surivors on the series "Lost."

    Some variation with a similar tune:

    Sandy from Grease

    Then again, care would have to be taken about what exactly is SANDY when you're on a desert island ...
