Molière’s classic, penny-pinching farce, “The Miser,” opens Friday, Oct. 25, at the Woodland Opera House. The show runs through Nov. 17 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. There is an additional 2 p.m. matinee Saturday, Nov. 9.

Old Harpagon is a penny-pinching miser who loves his hidden fortune more than his children. When he falls for the same girl as his son, all bets are off as his children conspire to trick him out of his treasure.

Full of greed, lies, conflict and paranoia, Molière’s fast-paced comedy is as timely today as it was when it was first performed for Parisian audiences in 1668.

The cast includes Rodger McDonald as Harpagon, Matt Wieringa as Cléante, Sara Matsui-Colby as Elise, Matt Taloff as Valère, Jen Smuda-Cotter as Marianne, Steve MacKay as Anselme, Analise Langford as Frosine, Alan Smuda as Master Simon, Katherine Barsky as Dame Claude, Tim Gaffaney as La Fleche and Alec Gracia as the Officer.

The show is directed by Rodger McDonald. The set is designed by John Bowles and costumes are designed by Denise Miles.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors and $12 for child and youths 17 and younger. Balcony seats are $15 for adult and $7 for 17 and under. They’re available online at www.woodlandoperahouse.org; at the box office, 340 Second St.; or by calling 530-666-9617.

The show is recommended for audiences age 13 and older.
