Awards Night 2017

Posted on May 14, 2017

Please join us in recognizing students for their hard work and commitment to excellence in theatre at the Theatre Department Awards Night on Friday, May 19th at 7:00 PM at the SJHS Cafetorium.

The famous hypochondriac in this classic farce not only complains of a million imaginary ills, but also of his astronomical medical bills. If he marries his daughter to a doctor, he reasons, he will have free medical care. He chooses a Latin talking numb-skull without consulting the daughter, who is already smitten by another. The inventive maid exposes the doctor and his father as charlatans and demonstrates to the master that his second wife loves his money, not him. The story proves that troubles, both real and imaginary, can be relieved by laughter.
