Neil Simon’s Tony award-winning comedy “The Good Doctor” comes to life on the stage of the historic Gillioz Theatre in Ozarks Technical Community College’s fifth annual spring production.  The play will be presented April 27-29, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.  

Set in Russia in the 19th century, “The Good Doctor” is a series of comic sketches introduced by a Narrator (author and humorist Anton Chekhov) who is searching for his next great story.  A man sneezes on his boss and can't stop apologizing, a dental surgeon's apprentice tests his skills on a priest with an abscessed tooth, an out-of-work sailor charges admission to his own drowning — these sketches and others will have the audience in stitches!

To purchase tickets, contact the Gillioz Box Office by calling (417) 863-9491 or visiting www.gillioz.org.  For more information, visit www.otc.edu/springplay.
