In one of the world's great comedies, the wealthy Monsieur Jourdain hires teachers to train him in the Arts, and succeeds only in making himself appear foolish to everybody but himself. Then he tries to court an elegant Countess, making himself even more foolish. The play also contains a rambunctious mixture of Molière’s dramatic modes: Roman–style farce, commedia dell’arte gags, romantic high comedy, and great quantities of topical satire. In its time it was a social satire, today we can appreciate the satire but enjoy the hilarity.

Box office and auditorium open 30 minutes before start time. Content may not be suitable for all ages.
