|Paynesville Press - June 15, 2005|
Plays to be staged Thursday, Friday
Two plays will be presented by Paynesville Community Education's summer theater this week: "The Wizard of the Mall" and "Woolfie," put on by 21 area youth, will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, and Friday, June 17, in the high school auditorium.|
"The Wizard of the Mall" spoofs The Wizard of Oz, centering around a trip to the mall by Dorothy and her bunny FuFu. A revolving door knocks Dorothy unconscious and kills the wicked sales clerk of the East Mall.
The casts of "The Wizard of the Mall" and "Woolfie" - to be presented in the high school auditorium on Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17, at 7 p.m. - include: (front) Hunter Voss, Avery Davidson, Teirrah Syvertson, Wesley Ford, Lindsay Vagle, Katelyn Hoeft, Elizabeth Clawson, Victoria Clawson, and McKayla Quade (standing) Amelia Malling, Kari Hoeft, Kristine Hoeft, Donald Neu, Breanna Hess, Katie Weidner, Melissa Hawkinson, Lauren Spaeth, and Matthew Anderson. Not pictured are Eric Malling and Rachel McCloud.
A good sales clerk assists Dorothy on her way to Marshall Field's, along with her three traveling companions: Burnout, who needs new brain cells; Security Guard, who needs a heart; and The Nerd, who needs courage.
"Woolfie" blends Little Red Riding Hood, the Three Little Pigs, and Goldilocks into a court trial where Woolfie defends himself against accusers testifying that he has blown down houses and gobbled up young girls. This play features audience participation, a surprise witness, and an unexpected ending.
Refreshments will be served at both plays, and the directors, Colleen Pelton and Sue Teicher, invite the community to come and enjoy an evening of fun.
