Production Tips for
Smarty Pants

by Bradley Hayward

Dallas is a real smarty pants; he can read Hamlet in half an hour! He can't wait to show off in his new Advanced Placement class. But there's more Play-doh than Plato and more colouring than Van Gogh. What kind of advanced class is this? Will Dallas figure out Kindergarten High or will he flunk? Who's the real smarty pants?

A fantastic competition piece that encourages students to develop strong characterizations.

Tips from past Producers

Make sure you have actors who can jump rope, including the teacher. It took practice for the group to get there.
Swear your cast to secrecy about this play. The fun for the audience is in trying to figure out what's going on in this classroom, so cast members were not allowed to tell family or friends anything about the plot before the performance.
