Dominican High School’s award-winning Theater Department is excited to announce their production of Neil Simon's comedy FOOLS, January 17-20, 2013. A young teacher enters 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 to get more cream: common sense is not common! The teacher soon learns that the village is under the influence of a 200-year-old curse, which makes everyone in the village a fool. He ambitiously decides that he will be the one to break the evil curse and return the villagers’ intelligence. To break the spell, he must teach the beautiful, young Sophia, which is a daunting task given that her greatest accomplishment to date is learning to sit. To make matters worse, Leon has only 24 hours to educate Sophia; and if he fails, he too becomes a fool! Since Leon falls madly in love with Sophia, his desire to break the spell becomes even more pressing. Will Leon find a way to break the curse, or will he be another fool in love?
Performances will take place at Dominican High School in the small theatre. Tickets are $7/person and can be purchased at the door. Performances dates and times are as follows:
Thursday, Jan. 17 7:00 pm
Friday, Jan. 18 7:30 pm

Sunday, Jan 20 2:00 pm
