Stage kisses, pinkeye, inciting World War III — these are only a few of the many things that can go wrong during the production of a play. From the author of 15 Reasons Not To Be in a Play comes a full evening of the horrors and hardships that befall those who feel the call of the stage. In a series of hilarious examples, this play proves that drama can be a very dangerous thing and it must be avoided at all costs.
- Open to youth ages 5 to 18 (and not graduated from high school).
- Prepare a joke to tell
- Possible readings from the script. Non-readers will be given assistance.
