Auditions for the YCP TheaterWorks production of Scapin, Moliere’s zany reversal-of-fortune farce will be held on Tuesday, January 10 and Wednesday, January 11 in the library (not the auditorium) of Van Cortlandtville School at 7:00 pm. The school is located directly across from the Cortlandt Town Center Shopping Mall in Mohegan Lake.
Marilyn Heberling will direct the high-spirited hijunks of Moliere’s 17th century farce. Young love wins over the objections of the old, everyone’s identity is mistaken, the master manipulator servant Scapin outwits all masters and the farce ends as farces do: abruptly, illogically and happily. Actors should be prepared for lively broad physical comedy. Scripts are available for perusal at the Hart Library in Shrub Oak.
