Good morning friends and colleagues,
I'm in the process of choosing our shows for next season, banking on the idea that life will be normal enough for live and in-person performances at a greater capacity (masked or unmasked, I'll take it!). I'm trying to think of a show to do in the Fall that will allow us to make back some of the money we lost this year. We do a non-musical, full-length play in the Fall, typically. I teach in a community that is not as supportive of the arts as I would like, so I want to know which shows you've done that have brought in the masses, were less expensive to produce, and still fun for all involved. Right now, I'm leaning towards a Shakespeare (Free and fun, at least for me!). But I want to hear which non-musical plays you've sold out, and tell me about your ticket pricing, too!

Dracula. Plus we did a full scale haunted house and Spooky carnival with the show. We had almost full houses every night.

This is exactly what I was thinking of doing! Can you point me in the direction of the cut version you found?
Unfortunately, the website is no longer in service!!! I did the show in 2013 and the teacher who did the cuts must not be teaching anymore.
If you want to look around yourself this was the original website. I tried googling her name and her name with Romeo and Juliet, but I didn't find anything.
I'd scan my script for you, but it is a mess with stage directions and our own cuts and additions!!
No worries. You've given me some ideas. Thanks!
Actually, if you want it, I'll scan it. Just warning you it's a mess.
Thanks so much, but I don't want you to have to go through the trouble. That's too much work!
I promise this took all of two seconds to send through our copier.
Maybe you can print it and go to town with the white out on my notes haha! Also, we added a character because I had one boy that didn't have a part. So all of his scenes are at the end. You can see in my notes where it says "see new script".
"Working from an adaptation by Emily Burns that whittles the action down to a fleet 90 minutes, Godwin and his superlative company of actors inject uncommon urgency into the play, along with stirring depth of feeling."https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/romeo-juliet-tv-review
Thanks so much!
