Member Reviews:
      By Betsy Phillips, Director, Columbia Entertainment Company's Jackie White Memorial National Play Writing Contest
The stories are well-written and make good use of Yiddish folktales. It is a great vehicle for an ensemble cast and has opportunities for all cast members to shine in the spotlight. The "sending the children to school" scene is very sweet. The "shop sign" scene is really funny. All the readers loved the idea of the wise and foolish souls.
      By Joan Elwell, Managing Director, Lakeshore Players
Blending folktales, (an optional) dance, and comedy COCKAMAMIE TALES FROM CHELM is a delight for the entire family.
Norman, a decidedly silly angel, accidentally drops his entire sack of "foolish" souls into one valley and creates the town of Chelm. The play chronicles Norm's efforts to help the sweet, silly people learn to take care of themselves. Culled from the folklore of the Wise People of Chelm, the play weaves together five tales from Chelm and has a rich assortment of silly characters in which each actor can shine. The stories culminate in a joyous and "cockamamie" celebration of the birth of their town.
