A comedic baker's dozen comes together in one performable collection. Bath toys experience an existential crisis, an elementary playground goes film noir, gamers do battle for the last copy of the latest release—and that's just the beginning. Stay tuned for fairy tales and Shakespeare turned on their ears, zombie shoppers and a bear that's in hot pursuit of high school track stardom. With lots of flexibility built in, there are opportunities for every teen actor to find their moment.
