An unruly classroom of school kids has exhausted every teacher that has come to town. The school board is at its wits end and has been told by the school’s benefactor, that they have one more chance to find a teacher for the school and get the unruly kids under control or else the school will have to close. The school will have to prove the worthiness of the kids and the new teacher by performing in the town’s annual FRUITCAKE FESTIVAL. The school board has one final teaching candidate who has a fine reputation of taming wild kids. Unfortunately, he is delayed in coming and sends the school a letter, explaining his delay. The letter is lost in the mail. Meanwhile, a man, down on his luck arrives in town. He has the same last name as the famous teacher and is mistaken for him. The school board whisks him away to the awaiting classroom where he is expected to civilize the children in two weeks and prepare them for the FRUITCAKE FESTIVAL performance. If he is successful the school board will award him with a $1000.00 prize. Will the “phony” teacher be able to transform the kids? Will the kids run this “teacher” out of town too? Will the real teacher ever show up? Will the kids pass the test of performing at the FRUITCAKE FESTIVAL? Or will the school’s benefactor close the school for good? Find out in: The Phony Professor of Forrester Falls!
