About this show

"Take your kids to this uproarious Scapin" (Jon Sobel - BlogCritics). A funny and fun evening of theater for anyone looking for a classic laugh...Scapin is hilarious. (Amy Freeman - offoffonline). An exciting and energetic show. (Byrne Harrison - StageBuzz). Audiences and critics are enjoying Turtle Shell Productions' world premiere of an innovative and very entertaining new translation of Molière's Scapin, with rich language and plenty of laughs. The theater is transformed into a colorful, fantastical cartoon-like version of a festive Italian street festival, complemented by rich and flamboyant costumes. Director Shawn Rosza's innovative adaptation pays homage to Commedia but sets the action in the 1970's in "Itty Bitty Italy," a tiny village whose yearly festival provides the backdrop for a veritable carnival of uproarious characters and their antics, none more outrageous than the rascally Scapin. An Equity Approved Showcase
