Tuesday, January 14 – 7:00-10:00 pm
Show Dates: April 25, 26, 27, May 1, 2, 3, 4, 2014
FOOLS is set long ago in the Ukraine, in the town of Kulyenchikov, which has been cursed with stupidity. If Leon, a young schoolmaster, can teach something — anything — to Sophia in 24 hours, the curse will be broken. If he fails he will become stupid, too.
Director Marnie Herzfeld has provided the following character information.
Leon Tolchinsky — a young, idealistic schoolmaster. This is a large role with much interaction with the audience. 20-40
Sophia Zubritsky — the lovely young girl whom Leon must teach. Leon falls in love with her. 20-30
Dr. Zubritsky — Sophia’s father 40+
Lenya Zubritsky — Sophia’s mother 40+
Townspeople (most could be either gender and age is flexible)
Snetsky — an inept shepherd who has lost his sheep
Magistrate — runs the town and performs marriages
Slovitch — the town butcher
Mishkin — the town postman
Yenchna — a vendor
The Villain: Gregor Yousekevitch — the descendent of the man who placed the curse on the town. He wants to marry Sophia in hopes of breaking the curse. 30+
Please note: FOOLS will have seven performances over only two weekends because of Easter.
