    Next year I am considering, rather than trying to fund busses for all the feeder schools to attend our spring Rep show, staging a show that we can tour to them.  I'm looking for recommendations for scripts that would work well for this.  These scripts would need to be:
    *About 60 minutes in length, or able to be legally cut to about 60 minutes
    *Musicals are okay if they only require a keyboard or have canned music
    *Set should be a unit set or something simple that can be collapsed into a van
    *Material should be appropriate for 11-14 year olds, but still challenging for junior/senior actors

    STILL LIFE WITH IRIS! There's a 60-minute cut available from Dramatic Publishing. There are some set requirements, but the script lends itself to a lot of creativity.

    Trey Clarkson's "Rosie the Riveter" and Richard Tulloch's "The Book of Everything." We did touring versions of these shows with only rehearsal cubes, chairs, and a few props. We had 25 students on stage the entire show for each one-act.
