by Michele Zovak

Temple City –

Thursday, May 1, 2014 and Friday, May 2, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

The Rams Repertory Company of TCHS spring production of Tartuffe (The Imposter) at Theatre 601 at Temple City High School, 9501 Lemon Avenue, Temple City.  $7.00 General Admission.

Show Synopsis:
Do you know that old saying: House guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days?

Molière’s comic masterpiece brings us the imposter Tartuffe, a con artist extraordinaire who oozes piety and charm.  After crashing the home of Orgon and his family, Tartuffe has his sights set on other goals: marrying Orgon’s daughter, seducing Orgon’s wife, and becoming the sole heir of Orgon’s fortune.

Will Tartuffe’s hypocrisy be discovered before Orgon’s household is turned on its head? This famous farce is a cautionary tale told with lightning-quick wit, complete with star-crossed lovers, a badgering grandma and a plot that could be ripped from the headlines – or a Saturday night.

The fun begins with fraud next week with the Rams Repertory Company’s spring show of Moliere’s Tartuffe.

This marks the Rams Repertory Company’s eighth season. Previous productions include: Our Town, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Crucible, The Troubadours of Trouble, A Christmas Story, All in the Timing, Virgil and the City Slickers, Beauty and the Deceased, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged], and much more.

Performances will be:  Thursday, May 1 and Friday, May 2 with performances at 4:00 pm and 7:00 p.m. in Theatre 601 at Temple City High School, 9501 Lemon Avenue, Temple City.  Pre-sale tickets are $5.00 and are available through the Activities Office at (626) 548-5000, Extension 5160.   General admission tickets are $7.00. Produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Co.
