    ​A few years ago, I came across a one-act play about a principal who asked the drama club to present all the summer reading as an assembly because he knew the students had not read what they were supposed to and he was trying to improve test scores. It began with the story of the Scarlet Letter being sung to the tune of 'Belle' from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. It was really cute, but it didn't work with my season that year. This year, I think it would be perfect and I know it is somewhere in my library, but I can't remember the name of it for anything. Anyone know the show I'm talking about?

    I believe you are thinking of Ian McWethy's Every Novel You Read in High School (in 25 Minutes or Less). It's a fun one! You can read it for free at Stage Partners.
