Written by Neil Simon, “Fools” is not in his usual genre, BUT this fun comedy is definitely filled with the enjoyable wit and insight of the famous playwright. “Fools” is set in a Russian/Ukrainian village around 1890. The village has been cursed with stupidity and it is up to our hero, Leon Tolchinsky, to try to break the curse in 24 hours! He certainly faces a daunting task when dealing with a villainous Count, a young woman who just recently learned to sit and a shepherd who keeps losing his flock. Audiences are sure to enjoy the delightful villagers and their antics as they strive for enlightenment.
The show is “family friendly” and features a multi-generational cast of both veteran actors/actresses and others who are fairly new to the stage.
TICKET PRICES: $12 for General Admission. $10.00 for Student/Seniors. Tickets will be available Big D Superfoods [Florence] and City Market [Canon City]. Tickets will also be available at the Rialto Theater box office for each performance.
