Drama Club Must Die! is a new musical comedy you might consider for next year.
CAST OF CHARACTERS
7-12M, 16-22F, 10-25Either
2 acts, 2 easy sets
The cast is flexible. I’ve indicated suggested genders in parentheses below, with F=Female, M=Male, and E=Either where there is truly no preference. In addition many of the parts may and should be doubled or even triple-cast, particularly the drama club members, Munchkins, and Stooges.
Produced in the US and England.
PLOT OF THE MUSICAL
Although Mrs. Grackle is only temporary principal at the high school, she plans to ingratiate herself with the school board with big budget cuts, specifically cuts to the drama program which has been running in the red for years. Naturally, the drama club members and their sponsor, Miss Goldberg, are unhappy with this decision which will probably kill the drama program. When the club shows up at the March school board meeting to protest, they are given one last chance the school board will help them if they can put on a new version of Wizard of Oz together in one week, with all original songs!
