Choosing a Play for Your Amateur Group.
Butler, Ivan
This play-choosing guide is designed to help amateur theatrical companies in matching the casting, staging, costuming, and financial resources at their disposal with the corresponding requirements of about a hundred full-length plays. The plays have been divided into three categories: farces and comedies, drama, and thrillers and mysteries, and arranged alphabetically within each category. An outline of each play and its cast is given. The book also provides a comprehensive note detailing the number of actors and actresses required and their approximate ages, the kinds and numbers of sets, the approximate period, the relative complexity of costuming and special effects, and the names and addresses of the theatrical publishers from whom acting editions may be obtained.
