The Court Jester, an outrageous comedy, with singing, dancing, jousting, and sword fights will be presented on stage in Viroqua March 24-26, 2017.
“This is the story of how the destiny of a nation was changed by a birthmark. A royal birthmark on the royal posterior of a royal infant child. In a tale as old as time….the rightful heir to the throne had survived and is being cared for by a group in the forest. A group led by an elusive outlaw known only as the Black Fox.”
Come see this fun family appropriate play. A cast of more than 20 homeschool students (ages 7 through 17) will have you rolling in the aisles with laughter as they sing, joust, and sword fight their way into your heart!
Adapted for the stage from the popular 1956 Danny Kaye film. Appropriate for all audiences.
The Kickapoo Homeschool Cooperative Players present the comedy, “The Court Jester” at 6:30 pm on Friday, March 24th and Saturday, March 25th; and 1:30 pm Matinee on Sunday, March 26th at The Ark Center for the Arts in Viroqua (map).

Plot we got. Quite a lot.
King Roderick has usurped the throne of England and the rightful heir, an infant with the royal purple pimpernel birthmark is being hidden by rebel forces in the forest.
Proving that the brightest heroes aren’t always the best for the job, an ex-carnival entertainer becomes jester to the king in order to infiltrate the court and put the right posterior back on the throne.
“A jester’s chief employment is to kill himself for your enjoyment. And a jester unemployed is nobody’s fool.”
