Tickets Available for the GSB Players’ “The Learned Ladies”
Tickets are now on sale for the Upper School’s fall production, The Learned Ladies.
Molière’s classic comedy satirizes a household where common sense is diminished and pedantry rules. The play features three most unliterary ladies—Philaminte (Alexandra Baker ’15), her sister-in-law, Belise (Erin Wetzel ’15) and her daughter, Armande (Jamie Goetchius ’15)—all intent on having a high-toned literary salon much to the chagrin of Philaminte’s husband, Chrysale (Lachlan Wright ’17). These women have neither literary nor common sense, making them easy prey for the flattering con artist, Trissotin (Mycroft Zimmerman ’16), who passes himself off as a famous poet and becomes a permanent houseguest.
Philaminte hopes to wed her youngest daughter Henriette (Katherine Coscia ’15) to Trissotin. But Henriette, her father, Chrysale, and her uncle, Ariste (Aniello “Neil” Ianniello ’16), contrive to thwart Philaminte’s plans by marrying Henriette to her one true love, Clitandre (William Conlan ’16), despite his apparent unsuitability.
Directed by Performing Arts Chair Paul H. Canada, The Learned Ladies will open on Thursday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. Additional performance dates and times will include:
Friday, November 7 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for adults ($20.00) and students ($15.00) can be purchased online via seatyourself.biz/gsbschool. Faculty and staff members interested in reserving a seat should contact Sandra
