Performing and Visual Arts Events

The opulent dress and stifling mannerisms of Louis XIV era France come to life in an intimate production of Moliere’s most famous and hilarious “comedy of manners”. Affecting purity, the wily Tartuffe sets out to swindle the obscenely wealthy Orgon using wit, strategy and seduction to set the whole household on its ear. The rich poetry of Moliere and the intricate fashion of the French bourgeois are highlighted in this Black Box production where the audience joins the main characters in Orgon’s Versailles estate drawing room. Tartuffe runs approximately 2 hours with one 10 minute intermission.

Performance Schedule


Tartuffe is performed in the DOWNSTAIRS BLACK BOX THEATER in the Joan Steele Stein Center for Communication Studies/Fine Arts building on the Cardinal Stritch University campus. Entrance to the Studio Theater is through the main building entrance and directly down the stairs in the Main Building Lobby.  Tickets are still available for pick up in the Box Office at the front of the Nancy Kendall Theater.


The Cardinal Stritch University Performing Arts Season presents an intriguing blend of productions and events that highlight artistry and academic process. Contact or call (414) 410-4171 for ticket and performance information.
