Career Day

FARCE. Hilarity abounds when ten wacky guest speakers arrive at Greenwood High’s Career Day to educate students about the “thrilling” job opportunities that await them. There’s a plastic surgeon, a garbage man, an historian, a homemaker, a French dry cleaner, a philosopher, a lifeguard, an orthodontist, a hangman, and a circus worker. And to add to the Career Day excitement, the assistant principal performs her own unusual brand of stand-up comedy, and the school’s ditzy cheer coach demonstrates with zeal her cheerleading skills. This series of monologues is easy to produce and requires only chairs for staging.
