SYNOPSIS: When the school runs out of room, the administration converts the theater stage into a teachers' lounge, complete with a giant pop machine located center stage. The theater director and the Drama Club students scramble to create a play around the pop machine, using famous movies and plays as their inspiration along with blatant product placement to pay for the show. This parody is high energy, fun to do and a proven winner with one-act competitions.

"I have really enjoyed putting this show together! I love all of the references to both plays and movies and the connections to 2001: A Space Odyssey. I thought all of the advice in the production notes section was perfect and told me just what I needed to know in order to get started."
By Erin Beavers - Director - Tekamah-Herman High School
