Additional Info

A T.V. remote control and a few talented actors are all you need to produce this lively and cunningly educational play! It treats substance abuse quite seriously, but it makes sure a young audience has plenty of fun along the way. The ensemble plays several roles each, doing skits full of wise cracks and questions about abusing cigarettes, drinking, drugs, and guns. There's mime, and a remote control that can make actors go fast forward, slow-motion, or speak in rewind! Toured by the Missoula Children's Theatre with great success. From the author of Playing Hardball.
