VITERBO PRODUCTION OF "A FLEA IN HER EAR" IS NEXT BRIGHT STAR EVENT
LA CROSSE, Wis.— The Viterbo College Theatre Department will present Georges Feydeau’s "A Flea in Her Ear," Oct. 8-10, as part of the 1999-00 Bright Star Season.
This contemporary translation Feydeau’s classic farce is set in America in the 1960s and tells the story of a wife’s test of her husband’s fidelity. The play, under the guest direction of Stuart Bishop, features a complex series of mixed-up mayhem, mistaken identities, and misplaced but explosive jealousies that equal a hilariously funny performance.
Bishop, who earned a Master’s Degree in Theatre from Western Reserve University in Cleveland, has worked as a director in countless productions and directed stars like John Raitt, Joan Fontaine, Van Johnson, Leonard Nimoy, Jane Russell, Cyd Charisse, Dorothy Lamour, Lucy Arnez and Imogene Coca.
He spent 13 years as resident director/designer for Melody Top Summer Theatre in Milwaukee and has worked with the Southern Arizona Light and Opera Company in Tucson, where he resides. Most recently, Bishop directed a community theatre production of "Music Man" in Green Bay.
Performances are scheduled for Friday, Oct. 8, and Saturday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. with a final performance on Sunday, Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. at the Viterbo College Fine Arts Center.
Seats are still available. For ticket information, contact the Viterbo College Fine Arts Center Box Office at 608-796-3100.
