Summer repertory theatre presents comedic plays, including The Learned Ladies by Molière

The South Carolina School of the Arts is pleased to announce the second year of the summer repertory theatre program and the four live performances June 25-28 that are guaranteed to deliver sidesplitting laughter to Upstate audiences.

Wildly popular with audiences in its first year in 2013, the much anticipated return of the “summer rep” plays feature top high school actors from the Upstate of South Carolina working with the highly regarded actors of The South Carolina School of the Arts at Anderson University. The interplay between the younger and more experienced actors yields lively results, and with the addition of a French farce by Molière and shorts from several of the funniest American playwrights, this year’s performances are not to be missed.

Here is what’s being staged alternate nights in the Belk Theatre of the Rainey Fine Arts Center:

The Learned Ladies
by Molière
Directed by Cortney McEniry
The Master of French farce pokes fun at a system doomed to produce pretentious princesses.
June 25 and 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Summer Shorts
by David Ives, Christopher Durang, and Shel Silverstein.
Directed by Robert Homer-Drummond
Some of America's funniest playwrights pull out all the stops and put the crazy in comedy.
June 26 and 28 at 7:30 p.m

Audiences raved about last year’s performances so tickets will go fast for the return of the funniest live entertainment of the summer. Tickets cost $10 for general admission for one night or $15 for two nights. To purchase tickets call (864) 231-2125.
