School For Husbands

Moliere's School for Husbands is a wonderfully slapstick commedia dell'arte farce. Sganarelle is getting on in years, but has a lovely young lady, Isabelle, as his ward. He's raised her since a small child, but kept her under constant restraint and surveillance with the intent to marry her. But now a snappy young man presents himself as a rival. Who can he trust? What is she up to? What can he do? The laughs ensue!

Come and watch the hilarity unfold as Masque Alfresco unleashes our 9th Summer Park Tour in city parks in Beaverton, Hillsboro, Lake Oswego and Tualatin. We meld traditional commedia dell’arte techniques: colorful period costumes, slapstick farce, and rhyming verse with contemporary references, upbeat social references, and political barbs - for a wonderfully engaging show suitable for the whole family.
