Synopsis

Harold and Wanda have been dating exactly five months now. They work together at the steakhouse, and for Harold life seems full of potential. "Anything's possible. No matter how far-fetched or unbelievable." And now he's reaching for the stars. "Hand puppetry, as you know, is my dream. I'm training hard, my grades are competitive and I feel I have more personality in my little finger than most of those others guys have in their little fingers. And in puppetry that's important." And now he's popping the question. "Dream, Wanda. With your waitressing skills and my leadership potential there is not a restaurant in the world we couldn't work at. Dream." But Wanda has other ideas. And another job. At the roller rink, Harold is mature and understanding. "Maybe I'm just too normal, but to me it seems weird. What's this all about, Wanda!" What's Unbeatable Harold all about? "All right, Harold you wanna know what it's all about? Okay, I'll tell you what it's all about. It's about—it's about music. And a mirror ball and it's about lady's choice and doin' the Hokey Pokey and turning yourself around. That's what it's all about." A comedy for actors who wanna have fun.

Customer Reviews

"Harold and Wanda charmed the audience. Noojin has written a script that gives these very ordinary dreamers a wonderful dignity. Our players gave them a life that the audience completely engaged with. There were audible moans when Wanda turned down Harold's proposal. The hemorrhoid scene, however, has to be one of theatre's funniest moments."

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Play it straightÑthese two characters should charm us with their sincerity. We should love the reality of their very small dreams. This show is hilarious, but would die if camped up."
