One Giant Leap - Comedy
CAST: 5 Male, 4 Female
Class brain MELVIN only wants to be listened to and understood - particularly by classmate and puppy-love crush LIZZY. So when the bloodthirsty PRINCIPAL RAMBO instructs his teacher, MRS. APPLEBEE, to have her class put on a play about the first moon landing without him, he isn't particularly enthused. Rejected by his teacher and left without a role, MELVIN is forced to idly sit by as his aspirations remain unfulfilled and his classmates stumble through their lines. But when the production and its audience are threatened by a violent turn of events, MELVIN realizes that, no matter how badly he might fail, sometimes a third-grader's gotta do what a third-grader's gotta do.
