NAHS will stage Neil Simon comedy

NORTH ATTLEBORO — The North Attleboro High School Theatre Company will present its annual fall play, the Neil Simon comedy “Fools,” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22 and 23, in the school’s Cobb Theatre.

The production is directed by Lisa Forsgard and stars senior Will Redding as the bright, young schoolmaster Leon Tolchinsky who has just landed a teaching job in the small Russian village of Kulyenchikov.

He was hired by Dr. Nikolai Zubritsky and his wife Lenya, played by senior Bailey Hobbs and junior Zoe Tevyaw, to teach their sweet, but dimwitted, daughter Sophia, portrayed by senior Gabriella Gagnon.

Things take a turn for the worse when Leon discovers that the entire village has been cursed with eternal stupidity, and the only cure is the education of the helpless Sophia. Luckily for the Zubritskys, Leon falls in love with Sophia and pledges his loyalty to help break the curse, no matter what.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for high school and younger students, and senior citizens. They will be sold the week of the show at all lunches, and before and after school by Forsgard in Room 101.

For more information or to reserve tickets, call 508-643-2115, ext. 1101, or email
