The Backcountry Classroom: Lessons, Tools, and Activities for Teaching Outdoor Leaders
Complete libretto to the 1889 Drury Lane musical pantomime. Starting in the 1850s, London’s Drury Lane Christmas pantomimes were the preeminent entertainment of this kind. Many of today’s pantomime traditions, such as pantomime dames and transformation scenes, were first introduced at the Drury Lane. The productions included elaborate scenery and theatrical effects, fanciful expensive costumes, and hundreds of actors. By the 1880s, under Augustus Harris management, the pantomimes had grown so extravagant that they cost three million dollars in today's equivalent to produce. For many, it was the only time they ever went to the theatre. Published as part of Theatre Arts Press’ Classic Panto Series.

During a brief but brilliant literary career, Irish-born dramatist and statesman Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751–1816) wrote cleverly plotted plays that revealed his nimble wit and keen eye for comic situations. Two of them — The School for Scandal and The Rivals — are among the funniest in the English language.The Rivals, brimming with false identities and with romantic entanglements carried on amid a cloud of parental disapproval, satirizes the pretentiousness and sentimentality of the age. It features a cast of memorable characters, among them the lovely Lydia Languish, whose pretty head has been filled with nonsense from romantic novels; Capt. Jack Absolute, a young officer in love with Lydia; Sir Anthony Absolute, Jack's autocratic father; Sir Lucius O'Trigger, a fiery Irishman; and Jack's provincial neighbor, Bob Acres, a bumptious but lovable country squire in love with Lydia.Hoping to win Lydia's affection, Captain Jack woos the pretty miss by pretending to be a penniless ensign named Beverley, an act that nearly incites a duel with Acres. His actions also provoke serious objections from Lydia's aunt, Mrs. Malaprop, a misspeaking matron whose ludicrous misuse of words gave the English language a new term: malapropism. Ultimately, the hilarious complications are resolved in a radiant comic masterpiece that will entertain and delight theater devotees and students of English drama alike.
