Spring 2017 Comedy

If Moliére could see this Western farce of his medical plays, he’d laugh himself silly! Lucy Canary, the mayor’s daughter, loves Lester Goodbe, but her oppressive father insists that she marry Otis Lackginger, a rich, old coot with one foot in the grave. Lucy refuses, but when her father insists, she fakes losing her voice so she can’t say “I do.” Is there a doctor in the house?! Yes — three, in fact, and what a passel of phony medics they are! Dr. Pillpurge, the town quack has pills for every ailment. Medicine show con artists Dr. Abracadabra and his assistant, Princess Falling Star, make Lucy drink the foulest -tasting tonics imaginable. What has Lucy gotten herself into?! Maybe her friends can convince Gypsy Hagg to pretend to be a doctor and prescribe “true love” as the only cure. These doctors and their rapid-fire jokes, sight gags, slapstick comedy, and the funniest operation scene ever witnessed will leave your audience in stitches!
