The Draper’s Eye takes place in the garment district of New York City. Violinist Penelope Melton’s sister Portia has inoperable lung cancer. Portia spends her days staring out the window of her apartment at Spindle’s Fabric Shop. She not only notices a dark and handsome man as he dress the window with gorgeous fabrics but she sees feeble and infirm women going into the shop but not out! Portia sends Penelope to investigate; when she fails to come out Portia panics and goes down to the shop where she finally meets the mysterious Siegfried, a German physics prodigy. While exploring the store, Portia too vanishes but to where? Penelope begins her investigation into this disappearance but will she fall for the charms of Siegfried or will she too fall through the fabric of Spindles’ shop through a wormhole to another existence?
The all student cast is lead by veterans Kat Jordan (Tully HS) and Becky White (Southern Cayuga HS) as Penelope and Portia. The show also features Ashley Cornelius, Megan Schwartzwalder and Chris Dent (all Auburn HS) as Portia’s caretaker, her mother and a nosy photographer.
