“I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom,” purrs Amy Poehler’s Mrs. George in Mean Girls. This line comes right after she’s sufficiently stabbed Lindsey Lohan with her fake, extremely perky boobs and then told her teenage daughter (and friends) that there are no rules.

We’ve all known moms like that, right? A mom who still wants to be young, who can’t accept the age wrinkles written all over her face. You think that’s as bad as it gets?

Well, you’ve never met Party Mom.

Written by talented scribe David M Troop, Party Mom tells the story of one Mom’s quest to ensure that her daughter (Kayla) has the best tenth birthday possible at Chuck E. Cheese. Turns out, it’s a miracle the party is taking place there – due to various “mishaps”, Party Mom’s been banned from several local establishments; especially the “fun” and bouncy kind…

And this shin-dig is no exception. It doesn’t take long before all hell breaks loose and Party Mom is drunk, disheveled and dancing on Chuck E. Cheese himself.

That’s about when daughter Kayla snaps. She’s embarrassed of her mom (as any self respecting ten year old would be) and tired of her antics even more. Kayla demands her mom grow up and storms off to compose herself – leaving Party Mom to reflect on what she’s done.

What will Party Mom do? Will she stop drinking? Or agree to act her age?

Most importantly, will she ever be allowed in another Chuck E. Cheese? You’ll just have to read this script – and see!

Pages: 6

Characters: Party Mom, dad, daughter Kayla. Some extra kids and parents. Oh, and probably some security guards/Chuck E. Cheese staff.

Budget: Depends on what locations you select: anywhere from low, mid and high. An actual Chuck E. Cheese might cost a bit, although the setting could easily be shifted to a backyard if you have the right props. Regardless, a smart director could make this with friends and family for cheap and have a funny, touching meditation on what staying young really means.
