     “The Curious Savage,” a play performed in the beautiful setting of the Cloisters, opens this weekend at La Porte Little Theatre, located at 218 A St. It’s a show that takes place in a prominent psychiatric hospital where only good news is shared and where happiness is the focus.

     Performance dates are March 6, 7, 8, 13, 1, and 15, with Friday and Saturday performances starting at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday shows starting at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students, and can be purchased online at

     “The Curious Savage” is directed by La Porte Little Theatre Club’s Douglas Campbell and Marie Parrette.  Campbell has a knack for stretching his actors into making their characters believable. He recently directed the successful One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and also starred as Mushnik in Little Shop of Horrors this past October. Assisting Campbell is La Porte HIgh School freshman Marie Parrette. Marie starred as Anne Shirley in the wonderfully successful performance of Anne of Green Gables last season.
     “Curious Savage” follows the recently-widowed Mrs. Savage (played by Greta Friedman) through the aftermath of her husband’s death. Mrs. Savage was left 10 million dollars, which she chose to donate to various organizations rather than share with her greedy children.
     Upon hearing of her choice to give away the inheritance, the children connive to have their mother admitted to a private mental institution. Little do the greedy kids know that their mother has hidden the 10 million dollars. When the kids find out, Mrs. Savage is in trouble.
     Can Mrs. Savage and her new friends from the mental institution save her fortune from her greedy children?
