SODA presents “Fuddy Mears” Nov. 19-21
Tuesday, November 16th, 2010
The Lawrence Tech Society of Dramatic Arts (SODA) will perform its fall Production, “Fuddy Mears,” on Friday and Saturday evenings, Nov. 19-20, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 21, at 4 p.m.
All performances are in S100, the Science Building auditorium. Admission is free for students with a Lawrence Tech ID, and $5 for the general public.
SODA members are holding a canned food drive before each performance, and admission is free with a canned food donation.
“Fuddy Mears,” a comedy by American playwright David Linsday-Abaire, tells the story of Claire, an amnesiac, who awakens each morning as a blank slate on which her husband and teenage son must imprint the facts of her life. One morning Claire is abducted by a limping, lisping man who claims her husband wants to murder her.
The audience views the ensuing mayhem through the kaleidoscope of Claire’s perspective. The play culminates in a cacophony of revelations, laughs, sock puppets, and cop-impersonating-lunch-ladies. In this comedy, everything is not what it appears to be.
SODA welcomes new and old members to its cast. The performers are Amanda Sweet as Richard, Katie Hendrickson as Claire, Janelle O’Hara as Kenny, Kirk Bell as Limping Man/Phillips, Dayna Long as Gertie, Jake Lefebvre as Millet, and Rachel Yarbrough as Heidi.
Please note that “Fuddy Meers” is a comedy for adults. Because of some profanity and drug references, the play may not be appropriate for children under 13.
