The drama class from Coastal Bend College will be presenting the children’s play “Doc, Doc... Goose” by Patrick Rainville Dorn on Dec. 2 and 3 at 7 p.m.

Performances will be held in the college auditorium.

Tickets are $3 per person or free to college students with student ID.

The play is about what happens in those old-fashioned nursery rhymes and it’s easy to see why Mother Goose went to medical school and opened up a clinic in Nursery Land.

There’s no happily ever after here.

These poor nursery rhyme characters are plagued with freak accidents.

A typical morning in Dr. Goose’s clinic includes a cow with a sore calf from moon-jumping, a crooked man wanting chiropractic adjustment, a daredevil who burns his seat jumping over candles and a blond juvenile delinquent who breaks into bears’ houses.

With the help of her assistant, Nurse Gosling, Dr. Goose even runs nutritional support groups and aerobics classes for a man who eats no fat and his opposite wife, a tea-guzzling girl named Polly and a queen who craves tarts.

Fast-paced with slapstick humor and silly situations, this imaginative weaving of nursery rhymes with modern twists offers something audiences of all ages will enjoy.

The cast includes: Kris Lueders as Dr. Goose, Sarah Anderson as Nurse Gosling, Jason Keller as Mac Donald, Deidre Perez as Cow, Mozelle White as Crooked Man, Roman Gaona as Wee Willie Winkle, Monzelle White as Jack B. Nimble, Jason Keller as Jack Sprat, Lizette Segovia as Wife, Vanessa Clark as Polly, Genoveva Cortes as Queen of Hearts, Brittany Wade as Goldilocks, Monzelle White as Jack, Morgan Swango as Jill and Brittany Wad as Dr. Zhivago.

The play is directed by Phyllis Garcia with Deidre Perez as assistant director, Roman Gaona as the male understudy and Lizette Segovia as the stage manager.
