So you’ve seen the posts about the Village Playhouse’s upcoming production of Tartuffe and are a little confused — What do they mean by “Enhanced Staged Reading”?
You’re not alone in that confusion. So here’s a helpful guide on what to expect:
- Expect full 17th century costumes, designed by (the award winning!) Nikki Maritch
- Expect a full set, designed by Derek Jacobs
- Expect movement and blocking, designed by director Donna McMaster
- Expect full stage lights, designed by Elizabeth M. Havican
- Expect actors who are in character and engaged throughout the production.
In short, by enhanced staged reading we mean a play that is fully produced (set, lights, costumes, blocking, etc.), but where the actors are using scripts.
By having the actors use scripts, we were able to give many actors the opportunity to play roles that they would not have felt comfortable with if they had to memorize. With script in hand each actor is able to dig deep into their character and pull out all the nuances that will lead to better audience understanding of the show.
We are proud of the work that everyone has put into this production and are excited to share it with the community. It’s a timeless story of blind belief and betrayal of that trust.
As Donna McMaster, the director of this production says “Most people can relate to this play. We all know of individuals who have pretended to be something other than what they truly are in order to get something they want, to impress someone, or to simply fit in. Who hasn’t been scammed, lied to, or used in some way for someone else’s gain and then lost so much because of the scam? Moliere explores all of this.”
