    Name: THE RIVALS at The Cloverdale Playhouse
    Date: February 23, 2024
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM CST
    Event Description:

    Come and experience Montgomery's community theater, the Cloverdale Playhouse! The Rivals, the first show of the 2024 Cloverdale Playhouse Season, opens on Thursday, February 15 and runs through Sunday, February 25.

    Lydia Languish is a voracious consumer of sentimental novels. Her reading has inspired her determination to marry for love, rejecting her privileged status in society, and romanticizing being forced into poverty for the purity of her passion. Captain Jack Absolute is a high-born young lover who knows of Miss Languish’s predisposition and contrives to woo her while claiming to be the penniless Ensign Beverley.
    Distracted and impeded by a host of other hilarious family, friends and neighbors, various assignations and protestations, as well as an infamously misleading dose of matronly miscommunication, our young idealists find that true love can overcome any obstacles or rivalries with a little bit of forgiveness.

    The Rivals is a hilarious comedy of manners, and is often called one of the funniest plays ever written (and only one of a handful of comedies from the 18th century that is still regularly performed). The Rivals is a joyous romp that skewers marriage, class and wealth.

    Week 1 performances are on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (February 15, 16, and 17) at 7:00 PM and on Sunday (February 18) at 2:00 PM. Week 2 performances are on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (February 22, 23, 24) at 7:00 PM and on Sunday (February 25) at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children and students.
