Village Square Theatre

‘Doc, Doc ... Goose!’

LAKE CITY — Village Square Theatre will present “Doc, Doc … Goose!” as this year’s summer theatre. Showing in the high school auditorium in Lake City, at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. on July 15. Tickets are available from cast members or at the door: $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Just think about those old-fashioned nursery rhymes and it’s easy to see why Mother Goose went to medical school and opened a clinic in Nursery Land.

There’s no “happily ever after” here. These poor nursery rhyme characters are plagued with freak accidents. A typical morning in Dr. Goose’s clinic includes a cow with a sore calf from moon-jumping, a crooked man wanting chiropractic adjustment, a daredevil who burns his seat jumping over candles, and a blonde juvenile delinquent who breaks into bears’ houses. With the help of her assistant, Nurse Gosling, Dr. Goose even runs nutritional support groups and aerobics classes for a man who eats no fat and his opposite wife, a tea-guzzling girl named Polly and a queen who craves tarts.

Cast members include Arieanna Grage, Cara Voorde, Daniel Spafford, Landon Spafford, Nathan Burley, Tate Steig, Mya Ridgely, Katie Burley, Morgan McChesney, Sophia Wuebker, Karsen Wuebker and Maggie Armstrong. The director is John Smith and the play isproduced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service Inc., Englewood, Colorado.
