Please Hold (by Clint Snyder) is a comedy with five employees with major personality flaws that have been hired to “help” customers at a cable company call center. There’s an overly peppy agent, an agent with anger issues, a rude southern belle, an extremely anxious agent, and an agent who thinks she’s Abraham Lincoln. And then there are the customers! Hilarity abounds when the agents have to assist a hard-of-hearing customer, a woman with an unpronounceable name, and a customer who just needs an ambulance. In the end, the agents discover there is only one way to please unhappy customers.
In order to qualify for state in Norfolk on Dec.5 at the Johnny Carson Theater. Randolph must rank first in district competition.
