Moriah Drama Club Presents
“Doc, Doc … Goose”
Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, at 2:30 pm
Admission is $6.
Doc, Doc … Goose” is a madcap comedy about a doctor’s office that treats nursery rhyme characters for injuries. 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.
