Tulare Union proudly presents The Dastardly Doctor Devereaux a musical melodrama by Billy St. John and music by Debbie Wilson. The evil Devereaux, MD (played by Benicio Mares) plans to marry the wealthy widow Lotta Cash (played by Desiree Coria-Duran) so he can inherit her fortune and her husband’s clinic. Helping him is the nasty nurse, Hilda Hatchet (played by Ivy Freeman ), whom he promised to wed after he gets rid of Lotta. Talk about medical mania when the insanely jealous Hilda catches Devereaux flirting with our heroine, Wendy March (played by Gwen Flores). We can only hope that Dr. Good, our hero (played by Hunter Daley), can save Wendy and the unsuspecting Lotta from certain death. With an abundance of zany patients, wild tunes, and a hilarious plot, this musical melodrama will certainly have you in stitches all the way! Nurses! Foiled again!
