Shreds and Patches is an imagining of Shakespeare's Hamlet like no other! An excellent easy-to-stage competition piece that fuses Shakespearean speech with modern dialogue - a super fun way to bring Shakespeare into the classroom!

Anne-Arky

Anne-Arky

by Lindsay Price

A high school drama club prepares for their opening night of Anne of Green Gables.

The performance starts out normally enough. But when a rumour spreads that there is an acting agent in the audience, the students scramble to be discovered.

Anarchy ensues! Wigs fall off, ankles are sprained, and the stage manager sets fire to the prompt script. After the dust clears, the true identity of the agent is revealed. Perfect for novice actors.
