Have you ever wanted to befriend a clown? Find yourself a sidekick? Take part in something crazy before you die? Live vicariously and join in the fun and the chaos as Catawba College presents “Wonder of the World,” on stage at 6:55 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday, Feb. 5-6, and at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 7-9, in Hedrick Little Theatre.
“Wonder of the World” by 2007 Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, follows the story of Cass as she leaves her husband and journeys to Niagara Falls in search of her destiny. As she runs away from her problems and encounters kooky characters that change her life in unexpected ways, Cass finds herself closer and closer to discovering who and what she is meant to be.
