Performing Arts Company Presents - The King Stag

The King Stag

The Belmont High School Performing Arts Company presents Carlo Gozzi’s The King Stag, a Renaissance Commedia Dell’Arte play incorporating improvisation, puppetry, physical comedy and clowning in a tale of love, deception and trickery. The play follows King Deramo as he searches for a worthy bride with the help of a magic statue who can determine whether or not a woman’s feelings are true and sincere. Two of the young women put forth are the daughters of The King’s Ministers, both hoping to be father to a future queen. In the show’s pivotal plot point, the evil Minister Tartaglia transforms the King into the body of a Stag as a part of his quest for power. The plot continues as King Deramo struggles to find a way to restore normalcy to his kingdom and prevent Tartaglia from taking control.
