Happy Daze
Happy Daze
By William Gleason.

Cast: 16m., 17w. (less with doubling.) Julien Thaddeus Springer—J.T. for short—tries to make it as an athlete and, even more importantly, he tries to make it as a person who might interest some girl—any girl! J.T.'s problems begin to upset his home life and his parents exile him to his room. There's nothing in that room for him except a television set, and he begins watching "nostalgia" programs, set in what seems to him a much happier time. He becomes convinced that he's a 1950s personality trapped in the body of a modern teenager. To escape the unhappiness of his real world, he creates a make-believe world—a town called Oakdale, in the 1950s—and in Oakdale he's not a weirdo! In fact, he's someone special. In a climactic scene, J.T. fights through his problem and comes back prepared to cope with the real world of today. Bare stage w/props.
