North County High School to produce 'Li'l Abner' NORTH COUNTY--Linthicum * Ferndale * Brooklyn Park * Pumphrey



The citizens of Dogpatch USA invite you to the North County High School auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday to see the musical comedy, "Li'l Abner."

The play is set in the tiny hick town, which has just learned that the federal government has declared Dogpatch "the most unnecessary place in the country" and plans to move the townsfolk and build a nuclear testing site.

This throws an interesting twist into the annual Sadie Hawkins Day celebrations as the citizens of Dogpatch search for a way to save their town.

Members of the cast include: Dave Shields as Li'l Abner, Angelisa Proserpi as Daisy Mae, Duane Garrison as Marryin' Sam, Natalie Wass as Mammy Yokum, James Collins as Pappy Yokum, Dave Lloyd as Earthquake McGoon, Frank Artes as General Bullmoose, Rich Collins as Sen. Jack S. Phogbound, Dave Hill as Available Jones, Mary Beth Stone as Stupefyin' Jones, Tara Cariaso as Appassionata Von Climax, Brad Scheitlin as Evil Eye Fleagle and Matt Anderson as Mayor Dar'l Dawgmeat.
