Tickets Available for "The False Magnate" April 30-May 8
April 20, 2021
Folsom Lake College's Falcon’s Eye Theatre will virtually perform the soap opera sketch comedy The False Magnate opening Friday, April 30, and running through Saturday, May 8, 2021.
About the Play
The False Magnate is based on a play from the book Commedia Plays by Barry Grantham, and was adapted by FLC Theatre Arts Professor Jamie Van Camp for a virtual online performance. In this classic Commedia Dell’Arte sketch, a troupe of actors attempt to perform a condensed version of The False Magnate, a (fictional) classic play. It’s the age-old story of two lovers and a miserly father (Pantalone) who refuses to let them get married since he wants his child to be married to a true magnate or "a rich person". In order to keep it interesting, they decide to shorten a two-hour epic into 12 minutes. The show becomes an over-the-top soap opera full of crazy antics and goofball zaniness, which ensues at a fast pace and crashes into a very happy ending.
Virtual tickets are $6.00. This performance is presented using Zoom Webinar. Starting one week before their scheduled performance, ticket buyers will be emailed a unique URL link to access the webinar. Do not share this link with others, as each link can only be used on one device. More Information.
