Here is something truly innovative in children's theatre: real life scenes about family and friends presented in a captivating, moving, humorous and thought-provoking way. The play toured extensively in the Midwest with the highly acclaimed ArtReach Touring Theatre of Cincinnati, receiving enthusiastic praise at the Great Lakes Children's Theatre Festival, 1981.
The stories are an ingenious blend of humor, suspense and action, revolving around four actors playing children waiting to be chosen for basketball teams. There's Reggie, Melinda, Danny, and the real charmer of the play little Georgia, the new kid in school who wears glasses. She, too, is finally chosen for the basketball team in one of the most dramatic and touching scenes ever written for children.
A charming, contemporary play about friendship, love, and feelings that is a celebration of childhood with all its joys and changes. It is easy to stage, perfect for touring, and a delight to perform.
