In 1968 Richmond Hill Players’ first production was a comedy by the 17th century French playwright Moliere. For our 50th Anniversary Season we return with another work by the same author -“Scapin” (rhymes with “Japan”), adapted and updated for our times. In this wildly physical farce, two hapless young men fall head-over-heels for two beautiful-but-penniless young women. Since their wealthy fathers disapprove, the boys turn for assistance to Scapin, a crafty, quick-talking servant who can scheme his way into (and out of) any situation, leading to wily ruses, mistaken identities, absurd disguises, and slapstick humor. Part-circus, part-vaudeville, always hilarious, “Scapin” is a madcap theatrical romp for the whole family.
