About The Play
Requires 1-2 males, 4-5 females and 4-24 actors of either gender (total cast of 4-30 possible). Runs approximately 30-35 minutes in one simple setting. Ideal for one-act festivals and competitions at the school or college level, or for community theatres.
"I'll definitely be choosing another of Jonathan Dorf's plays for our senior drama and festival entries next year. Supermodels in Jeopardy is a smart, funny play with great characters that really help young performers develop their acting chops. Directors of small companies will really appreciate how carefully Mr. Dorf has crafted this one act play to allow a range of staging options from minimalist to opulent."--Dave Luukkonen, Kindersley Composite School (Kindersley, SK, Canada)
All of the world's supermodels--except for two guys from Iceland who missed their airline connection--have gathered in one place for the International Convention of Supermodels. So when the convention center collapses, it traps the entire supermodel community in their dressing rooms beneath the rubble. Can the convention organizers find a way to rescue them? Will the intern take the blame? What would it be like to live in a world without supermodels? Will we have to find out the hard way?

Upcoming Guest Artist Visits I'm excited to be returning to the Asian Festival of Children's Content in Singapore in late May, and during this trip, I will also be a guest at the Australian International School in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and then heading on to Yokohama International School in the Tokyo area.
The Locker Next 2 Mine Now Available My dramedy about teen suicide and dealing with loss, The Locker Next 2 Mine, is now available in both full-length and one-act (ideal for competition) versions. The full-length version had its world premiere at The Randolph School in Huntsville (AL) in November, and the one-act version had its premiere at Soquel High School in Santa Cruz (CA) in February. You could stage the next production!
Though the one-act version, available from Playscripts, stands on its own (and is perfect for competition!), this play was always intended to be a full-length composed of three acts: Rumors of Polar Bears, Ursa Major and Northern Lights. Look for the other two plays in the cycle sometime in 2013.
