A Mixed-Up Melodrama, for even greater fun, may be played with an all-women cast. Int. It's all about the efforts of one bumbling cast and crew to produce a serious melodrama, and from the premature opening of the curtain to the completely confused curtain call, everything that could go wrong does. The pianist plays the wrong music, the curtain opens too soon, there's an argument in the audience during the show, wrong sound cues, wigs come off, wrong speeches are given, wrong exits Yet, through it all, the players valiantly try to surmount the monumental confusion and create an atmosphere of madcap zeal!
