The family comedy runs for two performances: 7 pm. today and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 or $15 for families.
“It’s a silly parody of every ‘Law and Order’ show you’ve ever seen,” said Kathryn Brown, senior-play advisor.
“It’s a crime-investigation play. We start the play with Humpty-Dumpty falling off the wall. Detective Green and the Punnish Sir investigate the crime scene. Mother Goose makes an appearance. That’s Humpty-Dumpty’s mom.”
The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and Jack Sprat and Mrs. Sprat are interrogated as well as support groupies Jack Be Nimble and Mary Had a Little Lamb.
“All our famous nursery characters appear in the play trying to figure out what happened to Humpty-Dumpty,” Brown said.
“The play ends like every ‘Law and Order’ episode with the trial scene. There’s a surprise ending, a fun twist.”
The family that likes to create together gets the opportunity to do so at Second Sunday Family Arts offered from 1 to 3 p.m. at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts located at 23 Brinkerhoff St. in Plattsburgh.
Sunday’s theme is Valentine’s Day.
“They are going to make an envelope and fill it with little multilayered valentines made of construction paper and personalized for each friend,” said Shawna Armstrong, gallery/graphic coordinator.
“They’re unique valentines and not the classic heart-shaped valentines.”
The event is $5 per child or $12 for a family of three or more.
“Next month, we have a special Second Sunday at the Champlain Centre mall,” Armstrong said. “They are sponsoring us, so it will be free. The theme is Champy, and they (the children) will make noodle mosaics of Champy because it’s National Noodle Month, I do believe.”
The arts center can be reached at 563-1604.
