SUNY Ulster Theatre Department Presents Molière’s Sganarelle

Performances from November 15 - 18 at 7:00 p.m. and November 19th at 2:00 p.m.

This fall, the SUNY Ulster Theatre Department presents Molière's Sganarelle, directed by Stephen Balantzian and performed by SUNY Ulster students. Performances run from Wednesday to Saturday, November 15 - 18, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, November 19, at 2:00 p.m. All are performed in SUNY Ulster’s Quimby Theater.

In Sganarelle, The greedy and domineering Gorgibus is forcing his daughter Célie to marry the wealthy Valère, but she is in love with Lélie and he with her. Célie, in distress at her impending marriage to Valère, faints in the street, and Sganarelle, who is passing by, attempts to revive her. In the process she loses her miniature portrait of Lélie which ends up in the hands of Sganarelle and his wife. These two events set off a series of mistaken assumptions and quarrelling: Sganarelle’s wife believes that he and Célie are lovers; Sganarelle believes that Lélie and his wife are lovers; Célie believes that Lélie and Sganarelle’s wife are lovers; and Lélie believes that Célie has secretly married Sganarelle.

SUNY Ulster Theatre students present several full-scale theatrical productions during the year. Theatre productions at SUNY Ulster are open to all students, regardless of their programs of study. They also present original programs of Reader's Theater in December and May. In addition, both student and professional touring groups are invited to the campus.
