Tartuffe is a seemingly pious "man of the cloth". Beneath his veneer of religious fervor and zeal is a conniving rascal – a bum out to get wealth while satisfying the desires of his flesh.
The hit play is about life in World War II P.O.W camp. This is the last production to show in the Highlands Playhouse.
British author Christopher Fry is concerned with the tribulations of a young woman, who for an assortment of reasons, is accused of witchcraft by the townspeople of an English community in "The 15th Century, either more or less or exactly". First production in the new theatre building.
A very hearty welcome to our new theatre facility! After many years of planning and praying we are finally here.
The room you are in is called the Studio Theatre. In the future we will use this room for our experimental productions that call for various types of audience-stage arrangements. At present, because of severe budget restrictions, we have to use this space for all of our productions. As you can see the seating arrangements are temporary, but we hope they are adequate for your enjoyment of the performance.
Next year we hope to be able to welcome you to our fully equipped Main Theatre which will comfortably seat 500. Meanwhile our new scenic and costume construction areas are now operating full blast and our educational program is growing in size and capability.
We are happy, at least, to have a home and we hope you will come and visit us often.
