Le Malade Imaginaire

North Grenville Community Theatre is pleased to announce a new project: a French-language theatre workshop—a first for us! We will be performing excerpts from a real gem: Le Malade imaginaire, by the 17th-century French playwright known as Molière, under the direction of North Grenville’s own Steve Wendt.

The event will take place at Maplewood Hall in Oxford Mills on February 17, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., followed by a one-hour performance at the same venue. (So participants should plan to spend the day.) To make this workshop a success, we need participants (are looking for actors (cast) and stagehands (crew)! Please note that while the ability to speak French is useful, it is not required. We have ways of working around this! All theatre enthusiasts are welcome.

If you are interested, please email atelier@ngct.ca to register, indicating cast or crew. If you’re not sure, feel free to e-mail the above address to obtain additional information. The first registration deadline is passed but we can still accept participants.

The 4:00 performance will of course take place in French. We will accomplish this even if some of our participants may be a little—or very!—rusty in French. Theatre is all about creating illusion, and we can do that!

This workshop has been made possible to a great extent by the North Grenville Community Grant Fund. Refreshments and a mid-day meal will be provided to participants.
Please invite all your friends and relations to the performance! We will accept free-will offerings in lieu of selling tickets.
