“It is common knowledge that the aim of every senior boy is to get a popular senior girl as his date for the prom. Unfortunately, most boys are creeps and don’t know that this is their one and true aim during senior year.”
 
"Will you two stop talking like a bunch of rejects! Don’t you know that being a cheerleader is the highest level a girl can reach in high school aside from Student Council secretary? Where’s your pride?"
 
"So we girls get stuck doing all the planning and end up making all the arrangements. It is a sad but true fact of life and, consequently, good preparation for marriage or jobs in the real world."
 
CANDY: Patsy, does “don’t give in” really rhyme with “Emerson”?
PATSY: It does in cheerleading. Now once again...
 
 
POPULARITY by Thomas Hischak
 
It is remarkable how so many high school students today are finding so much to value in Jane Austen’s novels. But doing an Austen tale on stage is expensive, tricky, and difficult. Popularity allows students to experience Austen in a new and theatrical way. Set in a 1950s American high school, this version of Pride and Predudice brings all of Austen’s characters to light in a setting and time which today’s students love to enter. They also experience Austen’s timeless themes of young love, jealousy, prejudice, and open-mindedness.
 
Gone are the early 19th-century costumes, hair styles, and settings! Instead the play takes place on an open stage as the action moves to different locations in the high school. Some productions have even been done on a gym floor so the school atmosphere is real. Students love recreating the 1950s clothes and hair styles. The twelve female and eight male performers all play teenage characters (the teachers and parents are never seen) so the comedy is easier to cast. This is a play that your students will love and your audiences will be delighted with.

POPULARITYClueless meets Grease in this comedy, set in a 1950s high school and loosely adapted from Pride and Prejudice, that comically dissects how much we can trust our first impressions, The lessons these teens learn about love and friendship are as true today as they were in Jane Austen's time. This funny, moving play is easy to stage and filled with lively scenes and memorable characters... read more
