Cabaret Old Town

The Wichita State University School of Performing Arts presents The Learned Ladies, October 10-12. Moliere’s comedy, which takes a look at academic pretention, focuses on the lives of a group of “learned ladies” and their insatiable obsession for learning and high-brow culture of the conceited kind. Mix in a love triangle, a weak-minded husband, and a grammatically incorrect housemaid and you have one of Moliere’s most-beloved comedy of manners. This production is directed by Dr. Bret Jones.

A classic from Gilbert and Sullivan, lesser known works from F. Scott Fitzgerald, and an Agatha Christie mystery are all on tap this week.

It’s been said that politics and religion don’t mix but both are present on area stages in the coming weeks.
