I am directing a show at a high school.  The original plan fell through, and I am looking for a script very quickly.  My ideal would be a play that is/has
  • full-length (approx 80-120 min)
  • definitely appropriate for high school (no worse than PG language, PG-13 theme)
  • a comedy or adventure story -- something the kids can have fun with (sword-fighting a plus)
  • a reasonably large cast size (at least 10, but would prefer 20 or so)
  • good roles for women
  • not too many males (under 10), but not an all-female cast, either; or the ability to cross-cast a number of characters
If anybody has such a script, please let me know.

Thanks,
Carl

Delia Dancer, Doughnut Girl is a modern melodrama that chronicles a ridiculous day and the challenges and struggles of a young woman who makes a living manufacturing doughnuts and sweet pastries in a small town doughnut factory. Structured as a radio program complete with phony commercials, parody songs, audience participation, and listener call-in spots, Delia Dancer, Doughnut Girl stretches theatrical forms but is deeply rooted in awful puns and wrapped around an apple pie and a cup of coffee of small town life.
Types: Full Length Play, Community Theatre
Genres: Comedy, Melodrama
Cast: 6 men, 7 women, 8 extras, flexible cast, 21 total
Heuer Publishing
Yes there is an opportunity to choreograph a wonderful fight scene!

There are a couple of strong plays that are by some friends of mine that come to mind:



THE FLOW by Dominic Orlando
Drama
9 females, 10 males, 2 either (19-29 actors possible: 8-15 females, 9-16 males)

What is "The Flow" -- an after-school club? A team? Or something far more dangerous? Lonely Kevin Sorenson's about to find out, in a story that mixes fairy tale motifs with modern teens' struggles for acceptance and love.

It's published by Playscripts.com


and

PERSEPHONE RULES! by Michael R. McGuire
Hades has just kidnapped Persephone, spiriting her to the Underworld and causing her mother, Demeter, to leave the world blanketed in winter . . . or did he? Maybe Persephone set the whole thing up because she was tired of eternally perfect Olympus, "so golden, so glorious, so blah!" Persephone Rules! Adventures of a Teenage Goddess is a zany comedy that tells what really happened between Hades (who hates his job), Persephone, her tag-along kid sister, Cypher, and the rest of those wacky Olympian gods.
Available through Brooklyn Publishers brookpub.com
