Media Preview

Betti Trauth in the Eureka Times Standard previews the show, taking special note of the spectacular costumes designed by new HSU Dept. of Theatre, Film & Dance faculty member, Rae Robison--who also plays a key role in the cast (Dame Olivia Surface) and served as well as a period dialect and movement coach.

Trauth quotes Clint Rebik, director of The School for Scandal: “Pushing the era of the script's original 1700s setting forward to the 1820s made it possible to costume the actors in the more elaborate styles of that particular period. The resulting look of the show is spectacular -- you'd have to go to Ashland to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to see anything comparable.”

He explained, “OSF is actually one of the few theater companies who stages such rarely seen plays as Sheridan's 'Scandal' -- because they're artistically and technically so challenging to mount. But, we've done it here at HSU; and I couldn't be prouder of what we've accomplished. It will be a real treat for the audience.”

The opening night audience could only agree. The School for Scandal continues at 7:30 PM on Friday and Saturday, December 1 & 2, and returns Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 7, 8 and 9.
