Spring - Commedia Del'Whatè (Children's Hospital Tour remount)

Commedia del'Whatè

by

Andrew Preston

 

We are excited for our second Children's Hospital tour! This tour birngs back Commedia del'Whatè?! for the patients. Aside from our production we'll also be working first hand with the patients to help them create stories that we'll help bring to life! Our fisrt tour was a such a great experience we can't wait to bring them some classic commedia del'Arte with some modern Actors Project twist! 

 

Commedia dell'Whate deals with the villainy of greed and importance of friendship. The story takes place during the Renaissance. A greedy old man, Pantalone, plans to marry his daughter, Isabella, off to a rich Spanish Captain, Il Capitano! The pretty Isabella, who is very confortable not being in love, suddenly falls madly in love with a not well to do young man named Flavio. With the help of the town fool, Arlecchino, they plan on outsmarting the villains so they can get married and live happily ever after. Many classic commedia characters are featured in this such as the innamorai (the young couple), the old Pantalone, the bragart but cowardly Il Capitano, the childish Pedrolino, the talkative Dottore, the ever helpful Columbina, the studdering Tartaglia, and the Renaissance audience favorite Arlecchino.
