The Newcomerstown Thespian's spring production will take place April 13-14 at 7 p.m. at the Newcomerstown Middle School Auditorium and Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m. Tickets for the show will be 7 dollars and can be purchased at the door.
This year's production is the "Dastardly Doctor Devereaux." Newcomerstown High School director Adam Lefler provided this synopsis:
"Lotta Cash (played by Candace Offman), a wealthy widow, must be on the lookout. The evil Dogsbreath Devereaux (played by Austin Gano), M.D. plans to marry Lotta so he can inherit her fortune and her late husband’s clinic. Helping him is the nasty nurse, Hilda Hatchet (played by Madison Rehard), whom he promises to wed after he gets rid of Lotta. Wild? Well, talk about medical mania when the insanely jealous Hilda catches Dogsbreath flirting with our heroine, Wendy March (played by Brea Garretson). We can only hope that Dr. Phil Good (played by Noah Creager), our hero, can save Wendy and the unsuspecting Lotta from certain death. With an abundance of zany patients, wild tunes (’How Do You Bandage a Broken Heart?,’ ’Emergency,’ ’Do the Bop,’ etc.) and a hilarious plot, this musical melodrama will certainly have your audience in stitches all the way! As they say, Nurses! Foiled again!"
