LCC Theatre presents Moliere’s Tartuffe

Samantha Hall-Leonhardt as Damis and Chris Howe as Tartuffe in a scene from the LCC production of Tartuffe.

The students of LCC’s Theatre Program will perform the classic comedy "Tartuffe" from April 12-16.

The story takes place in the home of the wealthy Orgon, where Tartuffe – a fraud and a pious imposter – has insinuated himself. He succeeds magnificently in winning the respect and devotion of the head of the house, and then tries to marry his daughter and seduce his wife. Denounced and banned by the French government when first produced in the 1660s, Molière’s devilish comedy is perfectly ripe for our times.

The play was translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur and is directed by Blake Bowen.

The show begins in the Gannon Building’s Black Box Theatre at 8 p.m. April 12-15, and 2 p.m. April 16. Tickets are sold at the door or online: $5 for students, $10 for seniors and $15 for general admission. Opening night will serve as a pay-what-you-can, cash-only fundraiser for the Theatre Scholarship Fund.
