Vice becomes virtue, or is it the other way around, as UVM Theatre presents Molière’s hilarious comedy Tartuffe.
There is never a dull moment in this fast-paced feast of words when the wealthy Orgon falls under the spell of the sly con artist Tartuffe. Will Orgon’s family bring him to his senses or will the wily Tartuffe succeed in stealing all of his wealth, as well as his wife and daughter. See this uproarious satire brought to life in a lush and visually stunning production on the Royall Tyler stage.
Evening performances of “Tartuffe” are Wednesday thru Saturday, November 7–10 at 7:30PM. A matinee performance will be presented on Sunday, November 11 at 2PM.

Charles Henry’s Final Curtain is an original Vaudeville show tucked inside a new musical play that celebrates the life and artistry of Vermont’s itinerant painter, playwright, actor and theater artist Charles W. Henry.
In the early 20th century, Henry, accompanied by his wife and children, drove across Vermont in a horse and wagon, producing original Vaudeville shows with accompanying painted theater curtains in local theaters, granges and town halls. All members of his family appeared in the productions making them true family shows. Today, few people remember Vaudeville and even fewer know about Henry’s magnificent theater curtains that are now recognized as national historical treasures and are part of Vermont’s theater heritage. This original musical and Vaudeville show aims to introduce a new generation of audiences to this now-vanished form of entertainment, and in the course of the show audiences will learn about small-town life in pre-World War I Vermont and see on stage some of the finest examples of Charles Henry’s painted theater curtains.
