ICC Theatre Program Brings Scapin to the Stage September 27-October 6

ICC’s Theatre Program will present Scapin on the East Peoria Campus’ Performing Arts Center Theatre’s main stage Friday, September 27 through Sunday, October 6. Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm.

Scapin is a rollicking rollercoaster ride full of crazy characters and classical 17th century Italian Commedia hijinks, tempered with accessible modern twists, a little vaudeville, and a late 20th century spin to the language to make for a great performance.

As the play unfolds, the crafty servant Scapin promises to help two pairs of wide-eyed lovers while juggling an array of elaborate disguises and scams to keep their wealthy fathers from discovering they are being swindled out of large sums of their own money. Scapin promises to offer up plenty of innuendo physical comedy, exaggerated characters, audience interaction and fast-paced fun while remaining true to Moliere’s classic farcical tale from the 17th century. This play is rated PG for adult innuendo.

Tickets for the performance are $5 for students and seniors and $7 for the general public. For tickets or for more information, visit www.ArtsAtICC.com, or call the box office at (309) 694-5136.
