When the eccentric Doctor Baliardo grows convinced of an advanced society on the moon, he insists that his daughters accept no earthly suitors and instead hold out for— you guessed it—moon-men.
In the time-honored tradition of young lovers, the daughters do what any of us would: recruit some bumbling servants, dress up as interstellar emissaries, and set out to con their way into Baliardo’s blessing as hijinks ensue!
Full of shenanigans and devoid of redeeming social value, Emperor of the Moon rounds out the season with joy and hilarity.
Aphra Behn’s Restoration romp sprinkled with a dash of classical commedia dell’arte farce will be set outdoors against the backdrop of the Colorado Springs summer.
Join director Kathryn Walsh (Little Women, Twelfth Night), local favorite, actor Sammie Joe Kinnett, and a stellar cast for it.
Directed by Kathryn Walsh, written by Aphra Behn
