We had the pleasure of presenting ‘A Night in Versailles’ based on Molière’s one-act farcical comedy, Sganarelle, Or The Imaginary Cuckold, for two nights in the beautiful armoury of a historical fencing school. The play was accompanied by live baroque music and was followed by a wine and cheese reception during which the audiences had to opportunity to personally meet the actors and musicians. In short, we bring audiences into a full, multi-faceted experience of the world of the play, and not just the play itself.
Despite financial limitation, A Night in Versailles was presented with considerable artistic and administrative success.
From fundraising, advertising, designing and building of stage/set, casting and training of actors, a wide range of tasks were effectively completed. Our professional and creative team included 7 actors, 5 musicians, 2 producers, 1 financial director, 1 art director/set designer, 4 set painters, 2 set builders, 1 lighting designer, 1 stage manager and 2 front of house. The production was a successful collaboration between art and business. The event was well received by the two nights of a sold out audience.
