AJ had some great lines

Good one.

I also liked the Royal Canterlot voice comeback.
It was weird how Twi seemed like she had to convince Spike about changes of plan, when she coud actually walk all over him.

Don't worry about it, Celly-sama-hime-chan. Horrible acting is no match for "star power" and name recognition. Just look at the accolades Crowe Les Mis and Butler Phantom of the Opera got.

Dammit, Pinkie. That was clumsy of you to let it get close to sharpies.

Even if you have discounts or know the right source, you can't find cloudbusters for less than $30 each.

So uh, did this writer just get their own episode's moral wrong? It's like they don't actually know what friends are like so they never considered the obvious solution that makes sense for what's going on.

Consider the facts:
1. This is a school play, with children acting, in a tiny cave set, produced and set up by roughly 8 individuals. Probably written and built in about a weekend. No one expects a fantastic production here.
2. Both the play itself and the invitation for Celestia to star were specifically meant to give the princess something nice for her anniversary. Twilight obviously didn't think that including Celestia would increase the production value of the show, she did it because she knew it would mean a lot to her.

Given those facts, nothing in the episode really makes any sense, especially the conclusion. The Friendship solution, the correct answer the writer got wrong, was to first be honest with Celestia about her acting skills, then proceed to not give a shit and let her do it anyway! The play is celebrating Celestia, and exists only as a kind gesture to Celestia, so no one is going to fucking complain about her acting! It's all for fun, so just let her have fun whether she sucks or not! It really makes it hard for me to view the characters as "friends" when they go "Oh no, she's a terrible actress, the play is ruined" instead of what actual friends do, "Haha wow Celestia that was terrible! Don't worry about it, we'll work on it and everyone will love seeing you onstage."

Also, the cost of helium is ridiculous, but probably not a problem in Equestria.

Sadly true. Ponies are weird creatures.

If you invited Her Majesty the Queen of England to appear in a play about British history and then discovered she was laughably clumsy and incompetent onstage, you might want to abort for her sake and the sake of the monarchy, not for the sake of the play.

But then why did you invite her in the first place?

Finally saw it. A fun little episode, it had some good moments and it was good seeing Celestia in a prominent role.

I personally don't view the queen as a demi-god that can rule forces of nature or shoot sick lasers from her forehead.

"So... Like... Are we still calling her 'Princess' Celestia?"
