Cast: 13m., 13w. (extras). A girl on the football team? Just for kicks—make those place kicks! This nightmare of women's lib and new regulations leads to a comic situation in which a female English teacher is made coach and a girl athlete becomes the team's star kicker. However, when a school has never won a football game—no, not since it opened!—it can be forgiven for trying anything to gain a gridiron victory. The principal comes up with a devilish scheme. How can his team be faulted for its losses if its coach is a women? So he appoints the English teacher, Janet Talber. What he doesn't realize is that Janet is not the type to be a token coach and she means to win! Like the principal, she has far-out methods that include making Diane, a talented girl athlete, the star kicker. Diane is out for victories but her conscience bothers her about the boy she's replaced. This play offers a wide range of comedy, from highly sophisticated verbal humor to slapstick. One div. int. set. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
