Fall Theater Production of Sunshine and Madam Zorba to benefit St. Jude's

The Wayland-Cohocton Theater Group will present Sunshine and Madam Zorba, by David LaBounty on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, November 17 at 2 p.m. in the LGI. Admission is $5 and free for senior citizens aged 65 or older and for children under four years old. The presentation will also feature Opening Act Duets. 

When Sara Cole, played by Jennifer Ford, awakens in the hospital with a brain tumor, her wild and carefree roommate Jennifer convinces her she’s been committed to the mental ward. Truth be known, Jennifer, played by Cecilia Kuhn, is fighting for her life and is desperately in need of a friend. 

“Because this play involves childhood illness and highlights a teenager suffering from Ewing's Sarcoma, a bone cancer, our young thespians have decided to donate part of the proceeds to The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Director Matt Bondgren. 

From dealing with awkward family members to silly school girl flirtations with the male nurse, to facing hard new facts, Sara and Jennifer bond in this unusually funny and heart-warming play. 

Also appearing as members of the small cast are: Quinten Burpee as Mr. Cole, Hannah McGregor as Mrs. Howell, Trevor Donlon as Tony and George, Kala Gielen as Dr. Greene and Kendra Stewart as Dr. Wilde and Nurse Jenkins. 

Remember to arrive early as entrance and parking can be a little tricky with construction. The middle school entrance will be open with parking available at the two front lots. People with mobility issues may be dropped off at the entrance, but please do not park in the bus loop as it creates issues in an emergency. WC appreciates your patience during this construction project.
