Everett Community College students will perform Moliere’s “The School for Husbands,” at 7:30 p.m. May 30-June 1 and June 6-8 in EvCC’s Baker Hall, Room 120.

The comedy is the story of two sisters and their suitors. One suitor, Sganarelle, is controlling and overbearing of his intended wife, Isabella. The other suitor, Ariste, treats his intended wife, Léonor more as an equal.

Ariste finds success in his pursued relationship, while Sganarelle fails miserably. So much so, in fact that he is unwittingly used by Isabella in seeking her preferred courter, Valère.

“The School for Husbands” is Moliere’s first full-length play, written during the time of French King Louis XIV.

“Our production attempts to recreate the look and feel of the neo-classic court, where manners and style dominate communication, and playwrights operate under constant criticism of the court appointed censors, the French Academy,” said EvCC theater instructor Beth Peterson, who is directing the play.

The cast includes: Eva Bresciano, Nathan Couch, Caleb Dunn, Alex Hills, Dylan Hussey, Kyle Joy, Kat Johnston, Jason McKendry, Phoebe Nguyen, Chloe Maier, Jacob Nusbaum, Nicole Puzzey-Greyson, Xander Seavy, Jesse Tilley, Tim Williams and Eric Zannoi.

Production staff include Nikki Maier, Jodee Kreitel, Noah Holland and Brett Rickaby.

Admission is by donation. The play is open to the public, although theatergoers are asked not to bring infants. For more information, call 425-388-9525.
