New York Times Bestselling author Peter Lerangis delivers a well-cast drama with his third installment in the Drama Club series.
For the Spring production, the Drama Club decides to do something different, something meatier. So they convince Mr. Levin to let them do an independent production of a serious play--a play with issues--and raw language--and some controversy. (Just the thing to impress those college admissions boards.) When opening night comes around, the show has a piddling turnout. The audience is nearly silent, and the cast thinks it's a flop. But the next night the place is packed. The second performance is electric. Great, right? Not exactly. A parent lodges a complaint, saying the play is inappropriate for high school. Then someone publishes a piece in the school paper that makes the rehearsal process appear to be rife with all kinds of sordid behavior. There is a huge outcry from the parents and from the school administration, and Mr. Levin is in real trouble. Now the Drama Club members have to band together to help save their advisor from being fired! "Overall, a solid and well-cast production."--School Library Journal on The Big Production

Our customer reviews

It\'s been a couple of weeks since the Drama Club\'s premiere of their version of Grease, and Harrison just can\'t find it in himself to relax. Harrison desperately needs an encore and wants to put on another show. After hearing parts of a play, Early Decision, in her creative writing class, Casey knows that it would be the perfect piece for the Drama Club to put on. After a brief confusion of who really wrote the play, the Drama Club is off making the sets, creating the costumes, and casting the parts. But there is just one little problem: the play itself deals with issues that are way too controversial. The main character of the play is pressured into going to the perfect college, Harvard, and to lead a life that he just doesn\'t want to have, and so he tries to escape his feelings and problems with actions that are way too dangerous. Soon enough, word gets out about the play and parents aren\'t too happy with what the Drama Club will be putting on. An article written about the play doesn\'t help the cause, either. Before they know it, the Drama Club is in deep trouble, the members are shattered, and their favorite director just might not make it out of all this alive. There\'s always drama in the DC. The best out of the three books so far, TOO HOT! is just TOO EXCITING to put down. The characters are crazier, the plot is scandalous, and the drama is way too good to pass up. Fans of the previous novels won\'t want to miss out on this more
