“It’s a classic comedy of the English stage, complete with fancy costumes, witty dialogue and physical comedy,” says Clint Rebik, director of the HSU production. “But it concerns a society wrapped up in gossip and the doings of other people, where social status and power depends on who controls what’s being said and how it’s being portrayed. We’re not hammering at the contemporary relevance in our production, but audiences aren’t going to have a problem seeing it.”
THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL, , Sheridan’s comedy of gossip, wit and mayhem comes to the Humboldt State University Gist Hall stage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 PM, November 30-December 2, and December 7-9. $10 general, $8 students/seniors, limited free seats to HSU students. HSU ticket office: 826-3928. Directed by Clint Rebik; an HSU Department of Theatre, Film & Dance production.
