SYNOPSIS: Sabrina doesn't stand a chance against this girl! Wouldn't it be great if you could resolve all your squabbles by turning your opponent into a toad? Rozelda finds being a teenage witch mainstreamed into public high school is fraught with challenges. How do you get into a clique when you have all those warts? How do you get status when the family car really is a broom? There's only so much a young girl can take before she starts to strike back. When there are so many toads in school that classes get moved to a terrarium, the principal has to take action! Behind the laughs is the question: is it worth giving up your identity to fit in?

"I personally found the writing to be excellent. The freedom of characters and of the piece really allowed [my student] to interpret it freely as she saw fit. She found almost a dozen different voices and characterizations in the script, allowing her to really showcase her acting talent."
By William Dohle, Head Speech and Drama Coach, Columbus High School, Columbus, MT
"And the Broom You Rode In On by Jerry Rabushka, about mainstreaming a witch into the public school system is just right for the times and just perfect to entertain both children and adults. It's funny, well-developed play about casting spells with a wonderful message about "fitting in" with the rest of your class and friends. It was a winner at the annual SUMMER SHORTS Festival by Youth Education On Stage in Williston, North Dakota and was popular with not only the adjudicators but the audiences and the cast! I highly recommend this 'fun' little relevant fantasy that kids today can identify with whether they are viewing it or performing its many clever characters."
By Jack Dyville, Festival Founder-Director, Youth Education on Stage, SUMMER SHORTS, Williston, ND
