Exit Stage Riley

The Tammy Awards. Every drama student dreams of attending. But to win a Tammy Award, is the ultimate goal. The coveted GOAT Acting Award comes with a full scholarship and eternal glory. All eyes are on the elusive and charismatic Riley Thane to win for her one-woman show Thane's the Thing. The less-than-impressive Durschnitt High School Drama Club is also taking a trip to Madison in order to attend the awards and the club's treasurer, the devastatingly shy Janet has a big secret: she is secretly Riley Thane. To accept the GOAT Award would mean her college career is set, but it also risks exposing her true identity. Add to the mix an aspiring playwright, desperate to meet Riley, a couple of senior divas, two drama coaches battling it out for domination, and more! Can Janet and her cohorts keep her secret safe? Find out in this over-the-top farcical romp.
