MHS THEATRE PROUDLY PRESENTS
AUDITIONS FOR THE SPRING PRODUCTION OF
A FESTIVAL OF NEW PLAYS WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY MHS STUDENTS
Auditions will take place Tuesday and Wednesday after school in E2!!
Be there! You don't want to miss out!
An adaptation of Moliere's "The Adventures of Scapin", which was based on a major character (Scapin) of the classic Italian commedia dell'arte, this comedy follows a traditional commedia dell'arte plot: two sets of lovers, one miserly father, zany antics, and a marriage announcement at the end.
In this update, two young men fall in love - but not with women that meet their father's approval. In order to get the girls they want, they plead with Scapino, a servant, to help them out of their dilemma. As Scapino says himself, "The good Lord has blessed me with quite a genius for clever ideas and inspired inventions which the less talented, in their jealousies, call deceits and trickery." Scapino comes to the rescue though not in any traditional way and so follows a comic madness with one clever ploy following another.
This production rounds out the cast with singing waitresses whose attractions and jealousies mimic those of the main characters, thereby creating a fun sub-plot of their own.
Performances are November 18-20 at 7:30 in the MHS Theatre
Tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door
