The School for Scandal theatre production begins

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. – The Geneva College theatre department will present its production of The School for Scandal at The Studio Theatre on March 29-31 and April 12-14 at 8 p.m. There will also be two matinee performances at The Studio Theatre on March 31 and April 14 at 2 p.m.

The School for Scandal is a restoration comedy from the 18th century, written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. The play surrounds the plotting of Lady Sneerwell, a gossiper and founder of The School for Scandal, to spread false rumors about an affair between Charles Surface and Lady Teazle, so that she can marry the honorable Charles. In reality, it is Charles’ hypocritical brother, Joseph, who is trying to start a relationship with Lady Teazle. Meanwhile, both Charles and Joseph are courting Sir Peter Teazle’s ward, Maria. However, when the Surface’s uncle, Sir Oliver, arrives so that he can decide whether to leave his large inheritance to Charles or Joseph, the true character of each brother is revealed.

The play is directed by Dr. David Kuhns, professor of Humanities and Theatre. Kuhns has acted under the University of Pittsburgh theatre department, Three Rivers Shakespeare Festival and The Parable Players. In addition, Kuhns’ has previously directed Macbeth, Waiting for Godot, a Midsummer Night’s Dream, Beloved Friends and The Real Inspector Hound in Geneva theatre. 

The production of The School for Scandal is open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets cost $5 for general admission, $3.50 for Geneva faculty and staff, $3 for Geneva students and senior citizens, and $2 for all children under 12.
