Final Dress Rehearsal is a one act play written by Jack Frakes. It is a simple farce about an amateur troupe of actors putting on a production of "Cinderella". Predictably, they are nowhere near ready to perform. The actress playing Cinderella arrives late, while the prince never arrives period. This inspires the "Prompter" to offer to play the prince's part. The "Prompter" seems to want to play all of the parts in the play. The stepsisters fail to enter at their cues; the stage crew is composed of buffoons, the sound effects are played incorrectly, and when the author arrives, she quite understandably feels that her play is being ruined. It is popular with school drama productions. Available from Baker's Plays, royalty is $20 / $15.
