This farce set in France will run July 13 and 14, July 18-20 and July 25-28 at 7:30 p.m., and a matinee performance on July 28 at 2:30 p.m.<\/h1>\r\nTickets are $30 for general adult admission, $27 for seniors (60+) and $20 for children\/students. For more information, call the GVT Box Office at 304-645-3838 or visit www.gvtheatre.org.\r\n\r\nA saucy rom-com set in 1666 France, this is a hilarious retelling of Moli\u00e8re\u2019s Le Misanthrope, written entirely in rhyme. The widow C\u00e9lim\u00e8ne is the most desired and adored woman in all of France. When she meets the solemn and cynical Frank she will remember what it means to love. This production is rated R for strong language and situations, and innuendos.\r\n\r\nWhen one hears the phrase \u201cwritten entirely in rhyme\u201d one might immediately think of long-dead playwrights with dark and tragic tales. David Ives\u2019 adaptation of Moli\u00e8re\u2019s famous farce could not be more different. Written with a nod to modern-day humor, it is a delight to watch the actors match each other\u2019s jokes verse for verse.\r\n\r\nJackie Schram, who stars as the widow C\u00e9lim\u00e8ne, has experience with linguistically challenging roles, and thinks this show is a blast to work on.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe rhythm of it is so much fun, and the balance between the 1666 mannerisms and the contemporary thought is just too much fun,\u201d Schram said.\r\n\r\n[caption id="attachment_33613" align="alignright" width="191"]<img class=" wp-image-33613" src="https:\/\/mountainmedianews.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/sites\/13\/2018\/07\/Murray_J.jpg" alt="" width="191" height="288" \/> (Photo courtesy Greenbrier Valley Theatre)<br \/>Joseph Murray, who will portray Frank in GVT\u2019s upcoming production of The School for Lies[\/caption]\r\n\r\nThe talented actor, who holds an MFA in Acting from The New School for Drama in New York, has been seen in such shows as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Lost Colony and Romeo and Juliet. She also enjoys the opportunity to fill the big dresses and tall wigs; the fashion at the time. You can learn more about her on Facebook: facebook.com\/tallgirlschram or Instagram: @tallgirlschram.\r\n\r\nMatching C\u00e9lim\u00e8ne\u2019s wit at every turn is Frank, played by returning actor Joseph Murray. Murray has been seen on GVT\u2019s stage in The Underpants, The Cherry Orchard, The Crucible and The Glass Menagerie, alongside Producing Artistic Director Cathey Sawyer, as well as quite a few more. Murray loves the story and thinks there is a deeper meaning brought forth by all the cast members.\r\n\r\n\u201cTheir facility with extremely complex language has set the bar very high in rehearsal, likely the most highly skilled cast I have ever worked with,\u201d the actor said.\r\n\r\nThe program is presented with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture & History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
