Comedy "Scapin" at Fountain Hills Theater

Date: Mar 24 - Apr 09, 2023

Fountain Hills Theater announces the opening of the hilarious, madcap comedy, Scapin.

In this wild physical comedy, the crafty servant Scapin jumps into the story as he first promises to help in the affairs of his neighbor's son, Octave, then to aid in those of his own charge, Leander. Both young men have fallen in love with unlikely and penniless beauties, and both need money to help solve their dilemmas. Scapin knows a good ruse will always win the day and he drafts Sylvestre, Octave's servant, into his schemes. Brimming with zany characters and improvisation, this play is an uproarious romp of hugely theatrical proportions.

Adapting and updating Moliere’s 1671 original with topically fresh dialogue (“Moliere didn’t write this part” is admitted freely), dance hall music, and the occasional soft shoe routine, the cast takes great joy in blowing the fourth wall to pieces as they portray servants, ruthless employers, and the two sets of young lovers - complete with tall boots and appropriately heaving bosoms – all with a penchant for mayhem.

Scapin is directed by Peter J. Hill and is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC servicing the Dramatists Play Service Collection.
