Our version of this wonderful masterpiece was adapted by Oded Gross and Tracy Young with music by Paul James Prendergast and takes place in the 1960’s. GROOVY!
A chronic hypochondriac will go to any length to marry his daughter off to a doctor to lesson his growing pile of medical bills. Of course, his daughter has other ideas. Romantic triangles, comedic tricks, unruly servants, and mistaken identities promises lots of laughs, and the surprise ending will leave you breathless.
Even though this version is not a musical, it does have a smidge of hilarious songs included that enhance the farcical beauty of the show. You won’t want to miss these! There is a satirical love song sung by Robert Newman & Lydia Smith (if you saw Spamalot, you know the comedic wonders these two young people are). There is a groovy rockin’ roll number performed by Marina McDowell that will highly entertain you. And there is even a song that will get it’s words from an unsuspecting audience member that will tickle your funny bone performed by Quinn White. And then a haunting ballad sung by Megan Wright that will pull at your heartstrings.
The Cast: Kyle Short, Megan Wright, Brita Fagerstrom, Jared Vance, Lydia Smith, Robert Newman, Demaris Oxman, Liam Porter-Bell, Quinn White, Abigail Hoy, Marina McDowell, Chirs Talley, Malcom Lumba, Lily Deitz, and Melissa Paradis. The stage manager is Elle Campbell and our Crew Extraordinaire is Matthew Woodland
The students in the cast built and painted the set themselves! They also pained beautiful paintings for the set and framed them. The props were also gathered all by the cast!
Shelly Wright is the wonderful creator of the awesome 60’s style of costumes that the students will wear. She is a master at all she creates!
The students have had a ball working on this wonderful comedy that was originally adapted for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The JDHS students who performed at the Fringe Festival this past August for the American High School Theatre Festival saw and fell in love with this version of Molière’s comedy and were thrilled to be able to produce it for Juneau audiences.
This is one great fun evening you don’t want to miss!
