Description

The School for Scandal

By Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Directed by Richard Clifford

True loves and true characters are revealed amid gossip, clever pretenses, and ostensibly compromising situations. It’s all Surface and Candour in this witty comedy of very bad manners and irresistible folly. This classic, which premiered in London in 1777, is Sheridan’s crowning achievement.

Steve Beall — Bumper/Servant

Clinton Brandhagen — Charles Surface

Nathaniel P. Claridad — Backbite

Catherine Flye — Mrs. Candour

Laura C. Harris — Maria

John Lescault — Crabtree/Moses

Hugh Nees — Oliver Surface

Cody Nickell — Joseph Surface

Kate Eastwood Norris — Lady Teazle

David Sabin — Peter Teazle

Margo Seibert — Maid

Theodore M. Snead — Careless

Tom Story — Lady Sneerwell

Shane Wallis — Snake/Trip
