Bullard drama to perform 'Learned Ladies' adaptation

Bullard High School’s drama team, Feast of Fools, has showcased a variety of plays from musicals to murder mysteries, love stories to classics, and everything in between.

Now, the Fools are taking a shot at Moliere’s The Learned Ladies at 7:30 p.m. on March 10-11 and 16-17, and at 2 p.m. on March 19. The shows will take place at the Bullard High School Theater.

Much in the style of Moliere’s Tartuffe, the play follows two characters, Henriette and Clitandre, who are smitten with one another. However, Henriette’s family does not approve of the relationship and therefore turns down the marriage as well.

In fact, these so-called “learned ladies” who detest the wedding of Henriette and Clitandre propose for her another man, Trissotin, who is complete with buck teeth and bad poetry.

Bullard junior Claudia Kosylak is playing the part of Armande, the older sister of Henriette. Kosylak has been in the drama program for several years and finds interest in her character’s personality, she says.

“I’m one of the three learned ladies and I think I’m so smart. I choose false intellect over love,” Kosylak said. “I like that my character is so obviously wanting to go with her emotions, but she’s suppressing it for the sake of being this intellectual person.”

Senior Melissa Lyness plays another of the pretentious ladies, B

    The winter guard has done such a great job of learning and adapting the show they performed. Each competition brought improvements and increased teamwork. The second place award was certainly earned through the heart and effort of each team member. Congratulations to them and their director, Jennifer Massey for the wonderful result.
