"I tell you, lovers are completely mad!"

The UIS Theatre department's Fall, 2012 production is Moliere's famous and funny play, Tartuffe and it was a delight! What is so much fun about this play is that Moliere wrote it entirely in rhyming couplets – 1,962 of them from start to finish! The performers, both the professional actors and the UIS students, delivered their lines almost perfectly throughout the play. It must have been great fun for the actors and it was certainly great fun for the audience. The production also showcased our new theatre professor, Dathan Powell, whose first scene design for UIS provided the perfect setting for the production. Congratulations, Director Missy Thibodeaux-Thompson and all the cast and crew on a fine production and another important contribution to the intellectual landscape of our university!
