In June 2016, the Pocket Community Theatre again held their Childrens Theater Workshop,
a two week learning experience which introduces young thespians to the
mechanics of developing a play to be shown before a live audience. The students learn theater
from the ground up.
Areas of learning and activity will include stage performance, set design and
construction, props, costumes, publicity, poster design and distribution
This year, the students will develop their skills from the fantasy play plays,
Doc, Doc ... Goose!.
From Pioneer Drama Service:
Just think about those old-fashioned nursery rhymes and it's easy to see why Mother Goose went to
medical school and opened up a clinic in Nurseryland. There's no "happily ever after" here! 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. With the help of her assistant, Nurse Gosling, Dr. Goose even runs
nutritional support groups and aerobics classes for a man who eats no fat and his opposite wife, a
tea-guzzling girl named Polly and a Queen who craves tarts. But will Dr. Zhivago from Fairy Tale
Land close down the clinic? There are three blind mice without tails who sure hope not! Fast-
paced with slapstick humor and silly situations, this imaginative weaving of nursery rhymes with
modern twists offers something audiences of all ages will enjoy!
