I'll recommend RICHARD III, act 1, scene 2, Richard's wooing of Anne, 
for a standalone scene.

Hamlet (Mousetrap)
Midsummer (Pyramus)
LLL (Play of the Nine worthies)
Tempest (Pageant & possibly whole play)
Shrew (Christopher Sly)
Merry Wives (Pageant in forest)
T&C (Ulysses describes others doing impersonations of generals)
Henry IV, Pt. 1 (Tavern scene)
Henry VIII (Mask vision)
Lear (Mock trial)
Macbeth (Show of 8 kings)
Cymbeline (Jupiter & ghosts)
Pericles (Dumb shows)

I'm not sure I understand, but how about the Ophelia/Hamlet nunnery 
argument, or the Brutus/Cassius argument ("I'd rather coin my blood for 
drachmas..." & the reference to Portia's death); on the short side Mark 
Antony's "eulogy" - some fun there with a crowd of extras being swayed 
by his words. Perhaps encourage the audience to join that scene, 
following the lead of the actors.

Actually if you take all three scenes and put them together they make a 
great piece:

Act I: Casting
Act II: Rehearsal
Act III: Performance
