Centennial Christian performing arts students

Centennial plays matchmaker

Performing arts students at Centennial Christian continue last year's tradition of farce with their production of The Matchmaker.

Following on the heels of last year’s performance of the farce One Mad Night, Centennial Christian drama students present another farce, the Matchmaker, this year.

Josh Sexton is Horace Vandergelder, the wealthy “merchant of Yonkers” who forbids his niece Ermengarde, played by Ocean Georgelin, from marrying her love Ambrose, played by Marcus Behnke, while hiring matchmaker Dolly Levi, played by Krystal Behnke, to find him a wife. While telling Horace that she wants him to meet Irene Molloy, played by Lovene Operana, Dolly has set her sights on marrying Horace.

Meanwhile, Horace’s store clerks Cornelius and Barnaby, played by Josh Piers and Liam Nutma, decide they want to have some fun of their own, which includes kissing a girl, even though Horace has left them in charge of the store.

From there it becomes a farce in the old-fashioned sense: characters hidden under tables and in closets, men disguised as women, a complex conspiracy to bring young lovers together and a happy ending.

For more details on the play, see City Scene in the print edition of the Terrace Standard.
