The Magistrate

Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM

Yavapai College Performing Arts Center - 1100 E. Sheldon St., Prescott

Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in Arthur Wing Pineroâs uproarious Victorian farce, directed by Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You and Into the Woods, Regentâs Park Open Air Theatre, London).

In a similar vein to the National Theatreâs smash-hit classic comedies, She Stoops to Conquer and London Assurance, The Magistrate is sure to have audiences doubled up with laughter. When amiable magistrate Posket (John Lithgow) marries Agatha (Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll, After the Dance), little does he realise sheâs dropped five years from her age â and her sonâs. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps.
