"'Scapin' in the Garden"

  • Edward Hopper House 82 North Broadway Nyack, NY, 10960 United States (map)

Edward Hopper House is pleased to present a production of Moliere's topsy-turvy Commedia dell'Arte "Scapin" performed by the Children's Shakespeare Theatre in our garden. Commedia Dell’Arte is an old form of theater which began with traveling troops of masked players in Italy and France. They developed a stable of stock characters – the old doctor/professor, the miserly old man, the young lovers, a variety of tricky servants – and they drew from these to create simple story lines and repeated scenarios.


Admission is free, but donations are appreciated and will help to support both the Edward Hopper House and the Children's Shakespeare Theatre in Rockland. 

Special thanks to the 9W Market and The Filling Station for helping to underwrite the Scapin performance at the Edward Hopper House!
