The Beaux' Stratagem

By George Farquhar

Directed by Pamela Downs


The Beaux’ Stratagem, a wicked comedy written in 1707, follows the fortunes of two dissolute young rakes who have blown their fortunes, and hence journey to the English countryside to marry for money. They encounter a variety of obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a clever serving wench. The biggest obstacle to their scheme, however, is Love, who hilariously lies in wait for both.

CHARLOTTE'S WEB

Adaptation of E.B. White's Classic Story


CHILDREN'S TOURING SHOW




Tour Performances April/ May 2017

One performance on Campus in May


E.B. White's beloved children's tale is brought to life in this 50 minute children's show which finds the young farm pig Wilbur attempting to avoid a dire fate. Of all the barnyard creatures, Wilbur's staunchest ally is Charlotte, a thoughtful spider who devises an intriguing plan to keep the gentle little swine out of the slaughterhouse. Although Charlotte's efforts, which involve words written in her delicate web, seem far-fetched, they may just work. Other characters include a gluttonous rat, some wacky geese, a cantankerous sheep, Homer, Fern, the farmhand and more!
