For the Antigo Times
The Wabeno Area Players would like to remind the community that tryouts for The Dastardly Dr. Devereaux are Monday, June 19 and Tuesday, June 20 in the Wabeno High School Auditorium at 6:00 PM.
Please get involved. This is going to be a play to remember. The characters are hilarious and the music is FUN! We need lead characters and extras. Tryout materials are at the Lakewood, Wabeno, Laona, and Crandon Public Libraries.
Performance dates are August 10, 11, 12, 13. A practice schedule will be set next week, based on the character needs and conflicts of actors. There will be two to four practices each week. “The Dastardly Doctor Devereaux” will be performed at the Wabeno High School Auditorium.
This is a hilarious musical, medical spoof that the whole family can enjoy. The story (written by Billy St. John) follows the story of Lotta Cash, a wealthy widow, who must be on the lookout for people trying to relieve her of her money. The evil Dogsbreath Devereaux, M.D., sets his sights on marrying Lotta so he can inherit her fortune and her late husband’s clinic. High jinks ensue with the help of the nasty nurse, Hilda Hatchet, whom Devereaux promises to wed her after he gets rid of Lotta.
Medical mania take place when the insanely jealous Hilda catches Dogsbreath flirting with our heroine, Wendy March. The only person who can save the characters from certain death is Dr. Phil Good. With an abundance of zany patients, wild tunes (“How Do You Bandage a Broken Heart?,” “Emergency,” “Do the Bop,” ) and a hilarious plot, this musical will definitely have you in stitches.
