Don't touch that remote! America's favorite repressed Catholic family, the Pazinskis of 1959 Buffalo, are now starring in their own TV show -- on your stage. In "Episode 1: A Meeting with the Parents", 12-year-old wisecracking Rudy tries to convince ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa and his high-strung mom and dad that laughs are as important as litany. Capturing all the warmth and humor of the original play, this one-act is ideal for high schools. Invite other departments from your school to create TV musical themes, commercials and newsbreaks. This cooperative effort makes for an evening of family-friendly fun and nostalgia!
