The Bear Stage Players have been working hard on their next production, “Tartuffe,” which will premier at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 29 in the auditorium. The term tartuffe is defined as a religious hypocrite and knowing the definition is essential to understanding the play.

“The story focuses on Orgon, who is very fond of Tartuffe and wants him to marry his daughter Marianne,” LCM Theater Director Cory Broom said. “Marianne loves Valrie and is repulsed by the idea of marrying Tartuffe, who outwardly seems virtuous but is actually a crook and a womanizer. Tartuffe tries to seduce Orgon’s wife, Elmire, but the family all works together to expose Tartuffe to Orgon for the man he truly is.”

Broom said he chose this play because he felt it was a classical comedy and he is very excited about exploring this kind of topic since the drama department has not faced a style like this before.

Sophomore Dalton Teeler said he feels it is ironic that he was chosen as the part of Damis since he seems to be the virtual opposite of his character. The part forces him to be short-tempered, which he said is unlike his usual calm demeanor. That is not to say they do not share any similarities – Teeler said they are alike in the sense that they both care strongly about their families.

The cast and crew will also get the opportunity to perform “Tartuffe” at the Thespian Convention in Dallas during the first week of December. LCM was chosen as one of only 20 groups to perform at this convention and according to Teeler, he is nervous but also looking forward to the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of theater enthusiasts.

“It feels great,” Broom said about the opportunity to perform at the convention. “This is a first for LCM and this opportunity will definitely give us additional exposure across the state as over 6,000 students are attending the festival this year.”

“Tartuffe” will also be shown on Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
