SYNOPSIS: In an effort to create the perfect production, the cast begins by reading the "survey results" they got from the audience in response to the question, "What do you want from a play?" Based on these responses, the cast creates a checklist and presents a play meeting all 15 audience requirements. The hilarious result is its "short-cheap-educational-safe, non-schedule-interfering, colorfully-costumed-interestingly-set, photogenic, Shakespearean, self-esteem-building, combative-musical-repartee-filled, stars-your-precious-child, contains-no-scratching-or-picking-of-the-embarrassing"...variety show!

"We chose to perform this as a Reader's Theatre in District Competition. Judges comments included 'Thank you for performing a true Readers Theatre.' Simple blocking with cubes and many opportunities for choral effect. We changed the checker to be individual cast members simply saying 'Check, Shakespeare (or whatever).'"
By Trisch Vessar - Advisor to Student Director - Moberly High School
"Both fun and inexpensive to produce, this large cast play received a superior at District Festival and advanced to State Festival."
By Rosemary Collins, Drama Director, Safety Harbor Middle School, Safety Harbor, FL
"A fast-paced, large-cast play. Easy on the budget, flexible casting and easy staging, no special lighting required, lots of opportunities for students to have their own moment of comic focus. We loved it and will do it again in the future."
