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!

Wait Wait Bo Bait

by Lindsay Price

Waiting... Waiting... Waiting... What are you waiting for, right now?

Christmas to come? The phone to ring? Class to be over? The man of your dreams? The line to move? The answer? To be yelled at for setting a toilet on fire?

We all have to wait. How long will you? Could you wait all day, or is it killing you? Are you staring at the phone, the line, the door, a clock? A watched clock never boils you know...

Praise for Wait Wait Bo Bait

Lisa Evans
Fennimore Middle and High School
It was well accepted by the student body and the middle school and high school audience found it entertaining and interesting. It was able to be performed with a minimum of props and set pieces.
Doug Parks
Parkersburg South High School
It's my second time directing it and we had a great time. We were selected to take it on to our state competition! This is my first year as the director of the program at PSHS and I couldn't be happier.
