Green Fields Advanced Drama Students Present “The Curious Savage”
TUCSON, AZ – The advanced drama students at Green Fields Country Day School will present “The Curious Savage,” a comedic play by John Patrick, on April 25, 26 and 27.
The zany adventure involves a millionaire widow following her dreams, her three greedy relatives and five whimsical psychiatric house guests in a sanitarium. “This show has
laughs, love and tears and will make your heart feel good,” said Green Fields drama teacher Mickey Nugent, who directs the production.
The patients are played by Michaela Cook as Mrs. Savage and by Madelyn Darnell, Elizabeth Litchfield, Belle Soyfer, Justin Thomas and Alex Weeks. The family members are
Daniel Beckett, Dyoni Isom and Connor McNally. The doctor and nurse are played by Tom Maksvytis and Danielle Ozols.
The Curious Savage premiered in New York in 1950 and more recently was produced as a film starring Queen Latifah. The first production featured actress Lillian Gish in the leading
role. Gish actually visited Green Fields to dedicate the school’s Center for the Performing Arts in 1981.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students. The play will be presented at 7 p.m. Green Fields is located at 6000 N. Camino de la Tierra in northwest Tucson.
Founded in 1933, Green Fields is Arizona’s oldest independent day school and the only one in Southern Arizona offering a continuum of classes from kindergarten through 12th
grade. This year the senior class includes six students who have attended Green Fields since third grade.
The Green Fields curriculum includes core classes in English, social studies, science, math, the fine arts, Spanish and French, plus technology and competitive sports. The historic Green Fields campus was originally an alfalfa farm that became a boarding school for boys.
