Want to know more? Then buy a ticket for the North County High School Drama Club presentation of "The Mouse that Roared" this weekend.
Shows will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The little country of Grand Fenwick is in serious economic trouble, until its young duchess (Teri Rich) decides to invade the United States. There is method to her madness, however, for a study of history assures her council that losing a war to the United States will mean foreign aid.
Count MountJoy (Matt Robey) suggests that they place someone simple in charge of the invasion, someone who couldn't possibly win a war against the United States -- Tully Bascom.
Bascom (Keith Jeffcoat), Grand Fenwick's National Forest Ranger, is placed in charge of the bowmen who will invade New York City.
The impossible happens -- Grand Fenwick wins the war.
