Trial by Jury - 1934 - Broadway

A jilted bride sues for breach of promise of marriage: the Defendant has found a new love. The judge and jury are much taken with the Plaintiff, while the ladies in the Public Gallery seem enamored of the Defendant. The Defendant claims that any damages must be small since he is such a "very bad lot" that the Plaintiff couldn't endure him for even a day! He offers to "marry this lady today and marry the other tomorrow." The judge ponders this nice dilemma and makes an imaginative ruling to settle the case happily.

How do you take hundreds of kids (ages 7 to 17) and put up over a dozen shows (mostly musicals, plus a few plays) in as little as three weeks, with rehearsals limited to maybe just 12 or 13 days, with all or most of the cast rehearsing just slightly more than two hours each day, and many campers working on multiple shows at once? And I'm talking about completely staged shows with full production values, including sets, lighting, sound, costumes and live orchestras. Not only that, imagine repeating this same frenzied process four times over the course of a single summer.
