Audition for “The Chairman and I”

An invitation from Nora Canby ’17:

For years, Chairman Mao Zedong was able to balance it all: being an awesome dictator, pulling funny pranks, being a “silly” dad. But now, with Sarah Silverman maybe visiting the palace next weekend, Mao must swallow his pride and find a governess to help wrangle his six healthy teenagers. He hires Magnolia, an American tourist, but she turns out to be crazy and in love with him! Meanwhile, the teenagers face problems ranging from environmental activism to being a goth.
