February 26- March 5: Moliere’s Shorts


February 26-28, March 5-7, 8:00pm

March 1, Sunday Matinee, 2:30pm

Black Box Theater

Tickets: $8, $5, $3

Two of French master playwright Moliere’s one-act plays played together create a fantastically fun evening in the theatre.  The Rehearsal at Versailles finds Moliere’s own acting company racing the clock to rehearse a play for the king.  Two Precious Maidens Ridiculed is just that:  two young women who think they know everything about gentlemen are shocked to discover they do not.
