“Wonder of the World” is comedic play about one woman’s journey of self-discovery

November 09, 2010

For its latest production, opening Nov. 17, “Wonder of the World,” the McDaniel College Theatre Department explores what happens when a wife discovers a dirty little secret in her husband’s sweater drawer and flees to the honeymoon capital of the world, taking her audience on a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs.

On her journey, Cass Harris encounters a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives and a gargantuan jar of peanut butter – all of which pushes her perilously close to the water’s edge.

“Wonder of the World,” written by David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by Gené Fouché, is the comedic exploration of a regretful wife’s journey of self-discovery.

“‘Wonder of the World’ is a broad comedy with lots of room to explore character,” says Fouché, an adjunct lecturer in Theatre Arts at McDaniel College. “While this play may not give its audience a great deal to ponder philosophically, it will keep them laughing and highly entertained. It will also give the actors an opportunity to build honest characters in ridiculous situations – something easier said than done.”

The student cast includes: Nina Minadakis as Cass Harris; Brady Eisenberg as Kip Harris; Britt Burr as Lois Coleman; Alissa Beckett as Karla; Stephen Lariviere as Glen; Paul Griffin as Captain Mike; and Julia Williams as Barbara, Helicopter Pilot, Waitresses and Janie.

The production runs Nov. 17-20 at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall. Tickets: $7 for adults; $5 for seniors, students, and the McDaniel College community. For information, call the Box Office at 410-857-2448 or click here.
