4th Annual Benefit - Comedy UMKC

The 4th Annual Comedy UMKC, to benefit student scholarships in the theatre department, is taking place on October 4th in the Helen F. Spencer Theatre. With a must-see performance of Tartuffe, by Moliere (directed by Theodore Swetz), a reception prior to the show, and a dessert served at intermission, it is sure to be a sardonic evening of hysterical hypocrisy! Not knowing our theater lore as we should, we researched and found out that Tartuffe is written in 1,926 12-syllable lines (alexandrines) of rhyming couplets. See, you simply must go to check out your own knowledge of alexandrines! Tickets are available at the central ticket office, 816-235-6222.
