|
30 - 40 minutes
2 W, 2 M, 6 Any (6-22 actors possible: 2-20 W, 2-20 M)
Set: Minimal.

A lot goes into putting on a play, but learning lines and hanging lights are a picnic compared to the drama that comes with stage parents. Of course, you have no idea what that's like in your theatre program. But as opening night for Ms. Robin's production of Medea approaches, she must try to lead the student cast through rehearsal while fending off stage parents of all stripes: from the backseat directors trying to take over, to the amateur documentarians who can't let a move go unrecorded, to the overzealous guardians of the concession stand. The parents step into the spotlight they crave for their precious progeny in this spirited, tongue-in-cheek comedy.
