Poynette High School Drama Club Proudly Presents...Fools by Neil Simon
Join us at the Poynette Village Hall in relishing in the dramatic talents of our high school thespians in their rendition of Fools by Neil Simon. The play features the story of a young, enthusiastic teacher, Leon Tolchinsky, played by Sophomore, Kyle M., comes to a Russian village to find the villagers speaking a plethora of accents-none of which are Russian. Furthermore, people put dust ON items, rather than dusting them off and milk cows upside down in order to get more cream. Common sense here is not common!
Leon soon learns his village is under the influence of a 200-year curse, which makes everyone in the village a fool. Leon decides that he will be the one to break the curse and return the villager's intelligence. To break the curse, Leon faces the challenge to teach the beautiful, young Sophia, played by Sam F., which is a daunting task, given that her greatest accomplishment to date is learning to sit. Leon has 24 hours to teach her or he too becomes a fool. Not to mention that Leon has fallen for Sophia, making the whole thing even more challenging. Will Leon find a way to break the curse? Or will he be another fool in love?
Come join the cast and crew to see the end result of Leon's challenge and enjoy a laugh-out-loud theatrical experience at the Poynette Village Hall on the following dates:
- Friday, March 6 at 7pm
- Saturday, March 7 at 7pm
- Sunday, March 8 at 1pm
