Soap and Rope Theatre Company returns for another fabulous commedia dell'arte production. This time, the troupe will perform the classic French comedy Scapin by Moliere and adapted by Bill Irwin and Mark O'Donnell.

Crafty servant Scapin concocts an outrageous scheme to help two hapless young men marry their beautiful but penniless loves. Will Scapin's kidnapping and ransom plan save the day? Filled with flamboyant characters, colorful costumes, and physical comedy, Scapin is sure to put a smile on your face.

Staged in the Barn at Castle Hill, this family-friendly production is a perfect way to experience commedia dell'arte. Additional performances are Thursday and Friday, May 17 & 18 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, May 20 at 2 pm.

Advance reservations recommended. Please note: You will receive a printable ticket via email for this event. Please bring a digital or printed copy with you to help expedite the check-in process.
