Into Rimrock High School comes mild mannered Oswald Agnew, new graduate of Hackensack Teachers' College. One expects a certain number of problems in a new job - but Oswald discovers that he's the first male teacher in the school in ten years! Mr. Agnew's first day is an absolute shambles. While he's diagraming a simple sentence on the blackboard, Spaceman sends up another one of his homemade rockets. Then Arlin gets his finger stuck in his desk. Then the fire drill bell rings! As they all carry Arlin, desk and all, towards the nearest exit, Mrs. Matchett, the principal, storms in! It looks like an impossible situation, but the students rally behind their new teacher who proceeds to win the respect of his fellow teachers!
A Rocket in his Pocket was originally presented by the National Thespian Troupe of Highland High School in Albuquerque, NM in April 1959. It was directed by Anne E. Shannon.

CASTING NOTES

By casting JACKIE as a girl and altering her dialogue slightly, the cast balance can readily be shifted to FOUR MEN and SEVEN WOMEN.

N/A (Not a musical)

SPACEMAN - an inventive, eccentric senior at Blue Rimrock High. 
ARLIN ABBOTT - the fun loving, but slightly bumbling class prankster. 
HARRY COOPER - Arlin's buddy and class "heart throb."
JANIS BROWN - Harry's pretty, spunky "steady" -well, at least once in a while. 
JACKIE - a muscular, athletic minded student. 
BARBARA - Jackie's studious friend. 
LULU - an older, more mature student -sophistication's gift to Blue Rimrock. 
MRS. MATCHETT - the ruggedly individualistic principal and football coach.
MR. AGNEW - a mild mannered, conscientious graduate of Hackensack Teachers College and first male teacher at Rimrock High in ten years. 
MISS CHISLE - a prim, grim English teacher who talks like a textbook and looks just about as glamorous.
