SPOOF. It’s become the latest TV reality show craze! In “American Idle,” contestants vie for the honor of becoming America’s number-one high school slacker. Host Brian Seacrest takes us through rounds of hilarious auditions, mind-bending challenges, and brutal eliminations. Along the way, contestants compete to impress three judges with their supreme slacker skills—an inarticulate school janitor; a nasty, condescending guidance counselor; and a spacey drama teacher. But in the end, the biggest slackers of all may be the TV viewers themselves, who have become too lazy to vote for a winner! This hysterical spoof has a flexible cast and simple staging.
[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”THE U-U-UGLY DUCKLING (1st-4th)”]CHILDREN’S COMEDY. Inspired by the 1844 Hans Christian Andersen tale. Mama Duck is thrilled when her ducklings finally hatch. However, when the last and largest egg hatches, Mama Duck is puzzled when Summer emerges. Summer is much larger and doesn’t look anything like the other ducklings. Upon further inspection, Old Duck concludes the eggs must have gotten mixed up and that Summer is most definitely a turkey because she is so ugly. Gramma Duck disagrees and is convinced that Summer must be a tree trunk. Two geese on their way south guess Summer’s either a chicken or a horse. Summer then meets a cat and hen who think she may be a big brown cow, an aardvark, a rhinoceros, a pig, a deer, a squirrel, an alligator, a snake, a tiger, or a kitchen sink. Confused, Summer ventures out on her own to discover what type of animal she is and where she belongs but she must first escape the sharp claws of Scary Cat, a pair of hunters, and a couple of hungry humans determined to eat her for supper. This charming play features a host of irresistible characters that will delight your audience.[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”Children’s Workshop”]Info on another children’s workshop.[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”Children’s Workshop”]Information on another children’s workshop or possibly another show[/lvca_tab][/lvca_tabs]
