LARNED — It’s not Grey’s Anatomy, but comical characters, a blossoming romance, and hospital antics can all be found in the parody, “Bedside Manor,” which will be presented by the Larned High School drama department at 7 p.m. Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Larned Community Center.
Laughter is contagious in this musical romp through the wackiest hospital around — Bedside Manor.
The silly staff and comical patients are bound to leave the audience almost “dying” with laughter.
Wacky gypsies (Delainee Gordon, Madison Tabler and London Whittington) sing and dance in the hospital corridors, and a Skid Row Man, played by Mason Schartz, croons about his derelict life.
Dr. Fred, portrayed by Erin Smith, longs to be Chief of Staff, and Dr. Huggems, played by Landon Erway, may be heading back to his job at the car wash if he can’t stop passing out when he sees blood.
The Band Aides, played by Nils Hoffman and Hunter Fitzpatrick, have their eyes fixed on their favorite TV program, “Of Human Bandage,” while a film crew, Jorden Drimmel and Madison Erway, roams through the halls making a documentary called, “This Was Your Life.”
Nurse De Farge, played by Drew Bowman, tries to bring order to the chaos; and Dr. Jekyl, played by Dallas Humphrey, insists that laughter truly is the best medicine.
Tickets may be obtained at the door, adults, $5 and students, $3. A final practice will be presented to the Larned elementary and middle school students and staff at 9 a.m. Friday at the Community Center.
