When Mrs. Causey's high school drama students botch their scene performances due to inadequate preparation, their teacher casts a spell that makes them live out their roles for twenty-four hours. We follow the antics of two surfer dudes trapped in their own version of Waiting for Godot, a football player and a cheerleader spouting neo-Elizabethan blank verse a la Romeo and Juliet, and a shy girl and a Gothic girl morphing into N'Awleans-drawling denizens of A Streetcar Named Desire ... until these experiences teach them that, when it comes to acting, the readiness is all.
