Best Medicine or the Prenormorous Tale of Dr Proboscis 

When: Fri., June 12, 7:30 p.m. 2009
The Best Medicine or The Prenormorous Tale of Dr Proboscis is a whimsical theatrical adventure that is part faerie tale part puppet show part slapstick comedy part musical part radio play and endless joy for all ages The town of Townsington has lost its sparkle It has lost its shine Their only hope is a scheming Doctor and his trusty assistant Gelato But will the doctor truly be able to perscribe the best medicine Taking inspiration from the greatest physical comedians of our time even some from the time of Commedia Dellarte and using Anne Bogarts Viewpoints vocabulary to create a rich and unique world Ensemble 113 under the direction of Sarah Scanlon weaves a story of finding joy in the simplest of places in a time where it seems that all hope has been lost McCracken Middle School (8000 E. Prairie Road Skokie, IL 60076).
