04/17/2015 - Central Theatre Ensemble presents: "Scapin: A comedy by Molière"

Tue, 2015-04-14 20:00

Central Theatre Ensemble presents: "Scapin: A comedy by Molière"
April 16-18 and 23-25 at 7:30 p.m.; April 26 at 2 p.m.
Milo Smith Tower Theatre
General Admission: Adults $12, Students/Seniors $10, CWU Student w/ID $7

In this wild action-filled comedy, the wily Scapin, servant to the household of Geronte, promises to help in the affairs of his neighbor’s son, Octave, then to aid in those of his own charge, Leander (Geronte’s son). Both young men are madly in love with down-and-out beauties (Hyacinth and Zerbinette) and both need money to help solve their individual predicaments. Scapin understands a good trick will always win over  and he recruits Sylvestre, Octave’s servant, into his schemes. Overflowing with improvisation and madcap characters, this play is a riotous frolic of theatrical hijinks.

Parents may consider some material unsuitable for their youngest children. May include situations, language or actions that may startle some patrons.
