Noodle Doodle Box, by German playwright Paul Maar, revolves around the relationship between two clownish characters, Zacharias and Pepper, who live in their own brightly colored box. Early on Pepper and Zach test the limits of their friendship and wind up tormenting each other in a variety of childish ways such as kicking, name-calling, spitting, and teasing. As Pepper and Zach begin to isolate themselves from each other, they are visited by a greedy and pompous drum major who decides that she would like to have both their boxes. The drum major plays on the selfish and competitive qualities of Zach and Pepper in order to steal their boxes. In the end, Zach and Pepper discover that if they work together they can magically create a number of new boxes and that sharing one box is much more fun than thoughtlessly clinging to their own boxes.
The play will be directed by Pat Collins, professor of education, produced in conjunction with Collins' course “Theater and the Child.” The cast includes William Smith students Molly King-Smith, a sophomore from Willow Grove, Pa., Tristan Tanner, a junior from Falmouth, Maine, Heather Harris, a first-year from Morgantown, W.Va., and Alyssa Heberle, a junior from Minoa, N.Y.
Tickets will be available at the door or can be bought in advance at Martin Music and The College Store, or by calling 781-3638. The play runs about 50 minutes. For further information, contact Pat Collins at 781-3637 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
