The students and their sponsor rally together to give an impassioned plea at the school board meeting. Impressed, the board decides to give the club one last chance, provided they can put an original version of Wizard of Oz together...in one week. The result is an uproarious, whirlwind adaptation of the modern classic, but is it enough to save their beloved drama club?

Published Reviews

"Adore this play -- it's hilarious, but it also has a whole lot of heart and a message we all need to hear and be reminded of frequently."

Andrea Decker, Phoenix Country Day School

"One of our administrators said [Death to the Drama Club!] was the best show she had ever seen at East Mecklenburg High School! It was the perfect show for a young cast to learn about stage technique and ensemble work."

Catherine Taylor Metz, East Mecklenburg High School

"We received our first standing ovation in four years! [A] funny and entertaining script!"

Mary Beth Klee, Ubly High School
