I would like to point out that #6 William Schallert and #13 Jean Byron played Patty Duke's parents on "The Patty Duke Show".  Thanks to Princess, Shutoo, and Lavender.  Well done, everyone.  We have them all now.  Princess got the most so she gets to post next.

Thanks, Miles. 

I've done quite a few lately, so I pass to my distinguished colleague, Lav.

Thanks Princess.    I'm calling this one 'The Play's the Thing'.   Below are 25 names of plays that can be associated with a classic sitcom...one or more of the regulars were involved in writing, acting in, investing in, or just watching the play.   Now that sounds pretty hard...so here is a list of sitcoms to choose from:   I Love Lucy, Petticoat Junction, Bewitched, That Girl, The Odd Couple, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Ozzie and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver, Green Acres, The Patty Duke Show, The Brady Bunch, Car 54 Where Are You?, The Dick Van Dyke Show,  The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, Gilligan's Island, Our Miss Brooks.

Here's the catch---some shows will be the answer to more than one...and 4 of them will not be the answer to any....so...keeping that in mind, in which shows were the characters involved in:

1.  And Everything Nice

2. Bathtub

3. Flowers and Feathers

4. Anthony and Cleopatra

5. The Queen of Diamonds

6. The Fairy Princess

7. Hamlet (the musical)

8. Baby Fat

9. Little Miss Pioneer

10. Over the Teacups

11. Waiting For Wednesday

12. The Gold Rush Girl

13. Kiss My Face

14. Tempest in the Tropics

15. The Pleasant Peasant

16. Waiting For an Armadillo

17.  Carmen

18. All Work and No Play

19. The Revolutionary Heart

20. The Little Dutch Boy

21. Who Killed Jock Robin?

22. Magnolias at Manassas

23. A Preponderance of Artichokes

24. The Solid White Zebra

25. The Most Happy Fella

2. Not sure if this is the answer but I remember an episode on The Dick Van Dyke Show when Laura takes a bath and her toe gets stuck in the faucet, the episode was Never Bathe on Saturdays?

 

That's not it...a funny episode though...(I don't think they mentioned the play's name)

#4.  Anthony and Cleopatra - The Dick Van Dyke Show'.  Rob gets roped into directing a local production as a fund raiser.  Laura plays Cleopatra and Rob gets upset every time the leading man (Bob Crane) kisses her.

#6.  The Fairy Princess - "The Brady Bunch".  Cindy lands the part in a school play.

#7.  Hamlet (The Musical) - "Gilligan's Island".  The cast puts on a production of Hamlet to showcase Ginger's acting for a Hollywood producer, Phil Silvers.  This could also be the answer to #17 Carmen, because they do music from "Carmen".

image.jpeg.b8eaa0f490764e51f933be69d0c14890.jpeg 

 

11.  Waiting For Wednesday - "Car 54, Where Are You?"

#13.  Kiss My Face - "The Odd Couple".  Oscar and Felix are arrested and charged with ticket scalping for a show called "Kiss My Face".

#21.  Who Killed Jock Robin? - "Green Acres".  Arnold the pig is the star of a stage show.   I believe there is a line about him being a big "Ham" actor. 

image.jpeg.961027736c767bc509e20abc01ef6600.jpeg

#22.  Magnolias At Manassas - Dobie Gillis

#23.  A Preponderance of Artichokes - "That Girl"

 

I found these by googling a few key words.

Google doesn't know everything 😉they never put on this production..it got changed, and in another show not only do they perform it on stage, but we see a humorous scene...with 2 Cleopatras.

 

I'll give some clues shortly...
