SYNOPSIS: Virtually every actor has had the nightmare: the lights come up, the audience is in place, but the actor stands completely unprepared. "What show are we doing? What are my lines? Help!" This hilarious one-act puts an entire theatre class through that experience. Somehow, no one quite remembered the date of the final exam—which was supposed to be a culminating performance in front of an audience—until that audience was sitting in front of them! With no script, no plan and the threat of a failing grade looming over them, the class quickly puts together an impromptu play. No Show will delight your cast and audience with an entertaining overview of the basics of theatre and lots and lots of laughs!

"This is a fun play. My students had a great time fleshing out characters and working on timing. There's a lot left to the imagination in this script. It also demands growth from young performers when it comes to working as an ensemble, as almost no actor leaves the stage for the whole show."
By Jordan Noble - Prince William County Schools - Battlefi
"A real opportunity to get multiple students involved in a play with almost zero production needs. The audience loved this show."
By Janice Weaver, Theatre Director, The Madison Junior Community Theatre, Madison, MS
"We performed several times in competition and for local audiences. This bare stage play was excellent, both in terms of cost and in providing our actors a strong ensemble vehicle."
