The curtain will once again rise on the University of Maine at Fort Kent's summer theatre program with a production of Tartuffe by Moliere.

Auditions are open to anyone in the community who is interested; no experience necessary, only a desire to try. Male and female performers of all ages, technicians, and production staff are needed.  

The play is about a scoundrel named Tartuffe, who pretends to be a model of virtue to gain the trust of a wealthy family, but is really a smooth-talking swindler. Will h is true nature be discovered before he robs the family blind?

“Come work with us as we put a St. John Valley spin on this hilarious theatrical classic,” said Aaron Bernstein, producer.            

Anyone interested in being a part of the play, please contact Bernstein at (207) 834-7893 or by e-mail at aaronb@maine.edu.
