Theatre NDSU is scheduled to present “Tartuffe” Feb. 22-24, Feb. 28 and March 1-3. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. in the Walsh Studio Theatre in Askanase Hall.
Early 20th century American circus meets commedia dell’arte movement techniques in this reimagining of Moliere’s classic. The scheming con man Tartuffe charms his way into Orgon’s household with plans to marry his daughter, seduce his wife and run off with his fortune. Will Orgon see through Tartuffe’s pious mask before it’s too late? One of the world’s greatest plays, Molière’s hilarious farce takes an over-the-top twist that includes masks, slap-stick and polka dot tights.
Tickets for “Tartuffe” are $8 for students/children, $12 for seniors and $15 for adults. Tickets are available through the NDSU Box Office at 701-231-7969 or online.
Walsh Studio Theatre is located in Askanase Hall, at the corner of 12th Avenue North and Albrecht Boulevard.
