The Rehearsal & the Hypochondriac
by Molière, adapted by Mechele Leon

Crafton-Preyer Theatre

This unique adaptation combines two works of Molière into one spectacle of 17th-century comedy. The Rehearsal follows a troupe of actors frantically rehearsing for their command performance before King Louis XIV. Upon the King's arrival, the company presents The Hypochondriac, a farcical love story about adding a doctor to the family tree.

Directed by Mechele Leon
Scenic Design by Sandy Leppin
Lighting Design by Dennis Christilles
Costume Design by Shannon Smith-Regnier
