2020 Spring Show

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.

The Director

Molly Bower

Molly Bower is grateful to make her debut with Wandernook as director for this production. Other directing credits include The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls at Lakeside Community Theatre, Sharing the Stage is Murder at Rover Dramawerks, and two short plays from Rover’s The Best of ODO, Half and Half and The Witches of Pigwarts. Additionally, Molly assistant directed Wait Until Dark and The Toxic Avenger at Lakeside Community Theatre. Molly’s earliest directing credits include revised versions of HersheyPark mainstage shows which she directed, produced, and starred in, alongside her younger cousin, in the attic bedroom of her grandmother's house, long past her bedtime, hopped up on root beer floats. She would like to thank her grandmother for sponsoring that whole endeavor. Molly has also performed on stage at many theatres throughout the metroplex, including Theatre Coppell, Runway Theatre, Rover Dramawerks, and Lakeside Community Theatre. She studied Beginner Meisner Technique at WaterTower Theatre under John Pszyk. Most recently, she received a Column Award Nomination for her performance as Francesca in Bridges of Madison County at Theatre Coppell. Molly mainly really really loves being at home, on her couch, next to her cat, bingeing her latest Netflix obsession. That being said, she is immensely grateful to have an excuse to leave the house - to be a part of this production, leading this large and talented team of people to create this story.
