SUBJECT: COLLEGE OF THE OZARKS THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS “EVERYBODY’S GIRL”
By: Chelsea Kliethermes
The College of the Ozarks Theatre Department will present its winter production of the comedy “Everybody’s Girl” on December 2, 3 and 5 at 7:30 p.m. and December 4 at 2:30 p.m. in Jones auditorium.
This witty comedy, by John Patrick, is the story of an eccentric widow living in a town called Harmony, whose activities range from being mayor to running the local home for wayward girls. Due to the unlikely incident of a Japanese duck landing in her back yard, she comes into small recognition—however, enough recognition for a newspaper man to come out and do a story.
When he finds out she has five sons in a prison camp in North Vietnam, he decides this is his chance for fame and a fast buck, and he launches a campaign to have her named “Mother of the Year.” But this fine distinction is hilariously corrupted when it is revealed she was never married.
Tickets are required to attend this production. Adult tickets are $10, senior citizens and non-C of O students are $8 and children are $6.
To make reservations, please call the Jones Theatre Department at (417) 690-2626.
