Hopewell Junior’s Drama Club is ready to tickle your funny bone through their upcoming production of Doc, Doc Goose!

A spoof of old-fashioned nursery rhymes that have been “mashed” up, the show focuses on Dr. Goose who runs a medical clinic in Nurseryland. And it seems as if everything that could go wrong does. It’s chock full of funny freak accidents, such 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.

The fast-paced show, with slapstick humor and silly situations, is an imaginative weaving of nursery rhymes with modern twists. Something audiences of all ages will enjoy, it’s your favorite nursery rhymes like you’ve never seen them before.

Opening night is Thursday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m. with an encore performance on Friday, April 15 at 6:00 p.m. The show will be held in the school's gymnasium and tickets will be sold at the door ($3 for school-age children and $5 for adults).

If you’re looking for a more immediate entertainment option, Ridge Junior’s Drama Club presents Peter Pan, at Lakota West Freshman School next Tuesday, March 22, and Wednesday, March 23 at 7 p.m. Tickets are being sold online at

and will also be sold at the door for $8, reserved seats.
