“The School for Husbands,” by Molière, will open Thursday at Theater at Monmouth, 796 Main St. in Monmouth.

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. July 11, 12, 24, Aug. 1 and 7; 1 p.m. July 20, Aug. 4 and 10; and 7 p.m. July 28.

Brothers Sganarelle and Ariste are entrusted with the upbringing of two orphaned sisters in this fast and funny Molière adaptation.

While Ariste lets his ward, Leonor, have total freedom, Sganarelle keeps his Isabella locked up in preparation for the marriage he is planning. Still, Isabella falls in love with Valere, a man she sees passing below her balcony.

Through intrepid plotting, Isabella passes messages to her intended through the unwitting Sganarelle, even dressing up as her loose-behaving sister to trick Sganarelle into supporting her marriage to Valere.

Tickets cost $40 for adults, $35 for seniors and $25 for students.
