Masque Alfresco marks lucky 13 with 'Would-Be Gentleman'
For The Review, Tidings
Masque Alfresco will present The Would-Be Gentleman, Molieres Commedia Dell Arte satire, in George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego this summer. All are welcome to bring pillows, sand chairs and a picnic to the performances, which are set for 7 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, July 18, through Aug. 3.
The play is produced, directed and adapted by Artistic Director Fayra Teeters. Featured actors include Masque Alfresco regulars Tory Mitchell, Ken Dembo, Rian Turner, Elizabeth Houghton and Ravyn Jazper-Hawke. New to the world of cmmedia this season are Daniel Robertson, Laurence Cox, Amanda Clark and Sarah Keyes Chang.
Masque Alfresco is now into its lucky 13th summer park tour of commedia dell-arte plays by Moliere, performed with all the traditions: slapstick beating, hat lazzi, colorful period costumes, said Teeters. But the plays have been updated for modern audiences with political jokes and celebrity slams ripped straight from the headlines.
The family-friendly performances will be held on the lawn in front of the Iron Foundry at George Rogers Park. They are free, however a hat will be passed at the end of the show for donations to support Masque Alfrescos program.
