Next up for Wagner College Theatre as it continues its 2020-21 season of outdoor performances are two Moliere one-acts, “The Jealous Husband” and “The Flying Doctor.”
Four performances of the pair of one-acts will be presented on the outdoor stage, built by the WCT staff and students, adjacent to Main Hall.
The shows are being performed live for an audience of current students, staff and faculty only on: Friday, Oct. 30 at 4 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 31 at 2 and 4 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 1 at 2 p.m.
The show will be live streamed via Facebook Live on Saturday, Oct. 31 at 2 p.m. from the outdoor stage for the off-campus community to enjoy.
“The Jealous Husband” and “The Flying Doctor” are farcical one-acts: fast, funny, spontaneous and loud, harkening back to the original street theater that was performed when 17th-century French playwright Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, stage name Moliere, was first putting quill pen to paper.
“The Jealous Husband” and “The Flying Doctor” are directed by Mickey Tennenbaum (WCT’s “Love/Sick” and “Everybody”).
“The Jealous Husband” and “The Flying Doctor” feature Brianna Cielo, Jamie Baio, Kyle Kimmel, Katrice Jackson, Catena Vallone, Andrew King, Gabe Argate, Claire Dempsey, Kirsten Kaiser, Ashlyn Roth, Alexander Ullian, David Leon, Elayna Briollet and Josh Romeo.
The creative team includes Phill Hickox (production manager), Teagan Hamel ’21 (Costume & Hair/Makeup designer), Cameron Russell ’21 (Video Supervisor), Conchetta Aronowitz ’20 (Sound Supervisor), Bobbi Renee Fullerton ’22 (Sound Designer), Mary Omilian ’21 (Props Master), Melanie Raimo ’22 (Assistant Stage Manager) and Brendan Flanagan ’21 (Production Stage Manager)
This is the third production of WCT’s inventive outdoor fall season. Next up: Lucas Hnath’s “A Doll’s House, Part 2” (Nov. 5-8) and, closing out the Fall 2020 season, “The Queen’s Men: Selections from Shakespeare’s Plague Plays” (Nov. 13-15). The Department of Performing Arts is excited to continue bringing together new technologies with the traditional outdoor stage as we safely collaborate, innovate and look forward to what we can create next during these challenging times.
