Featured in the cast (in alphabetical order) are Elora Becker, Alison Boole, Elizabeth Bouton Summerer, Miles Garcia, Ari Hagler, Phyllis Nofts, Lyndsay Palmer, Perry Shields, Jon Sparks, Rhonda Yeager-Hutchinson, and Zahra Zaveri.

FOOLS is the comic tale of Leon, an enthusiastic young schoolteacher who seeks to cure the Ukrainian village of Kulyenchikov from the curse of chronic stupidity from which they have been suffering for 200 years. Hired to educate Sophia Zubritsky, the daughter of the town doctor, Leon falls in love with her at first sight, even though she just recently learned to sit down. Dr. Zubritsky is hopeful that this teacher will be the one to break the curse since the vendor sells fish instead of flowers, the shepherd is always losing their sheep, the postman keeps all the mail, while the townspeople sweep dust from their stoops back into their houses and milk their cows upside-down to get more cream.

Reserved seat tickets are $25 with a $4 discount for seniors and students, available online at www.kentwoodplayers.org, by emailing the box office at boxoffice@kentwoodplayers.org or calling (310) 645-5156.
