Subject: Play Recommendation
I am helping the high school drama group choose a play for performance
this winter. I would like suggestions of Shakespeare comedies that have
a maximum number of significant parts, in other words, lots of
opportunities for stars, and can be performed with little complicated
I've been thinking about LLL, but the end is a downer, perhaps too much
so for a high school play. If not leave 'em laughing, then at least
don't leave them deflated.
Another local school did the Boys from Syracuse a couple years ago, so I
don't want to do Comedy of Errors.
Suggestions and justifications would be welcome. Thank you.
