HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (Oct. 22, 2009) – Final rehearsals are underway as Tidewater Community College's Theatre Department prepares to bring the curtain up on Moliere’s farce comedy, "The Doctor in Spite of Himself,” Nov. 5-7 and
Nov. 11-14 at the Chesapeake Studio Theatre, TCC Chesapeake Campus.
This rhymed-verse adaptation of Moliere's play is a fast-paced slapstick comedy about an ignorant peasant woodcutter who is mistaken as a doctor and finds respect and financial reward, even though he knows nothing about medicine. Moliere again shows how easily humans are fooled by some fancy language and a gown.
Performance times are as follows:
- Nov. 5-7, 8 p.m.
- Nov. 8, 2 p.m.
- Nov. 11-14, 8 p.m.
