The Foothill College Theatre Arts Department presents Ring Round The Moon, a romantic present-day farce written by Jean Anouilh, adapted by Christopher Fry and directed by Foothill College Theatre Arts Instructor Janis Bergmann, now through Nov. 24 in the Lohman Theatre at Foothill College.

Thursday evening performances are Nov. 14 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday shows are Nov. 8–9, 15–16 and 22–23 at 8 p.m. Sunday matinees are Nov. 17 and 24 at 2 p.m.

Ring Round The Moon introduces audiences to well-to-do twin brothers: Shy and sensitive Frederic, and Hugo, who is heartless, confident and charming. Frederic is in love with a saucy, spoiled girl (Diana) who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing the beautiful, lower-class club dancer Isabelle to a high-class masquerade ball. As the evening gala ensues, the bevy of colorful characters descend into plots and playful deception, an all-out girl fight, tango-disguised secret meetings, and amélange of romantic partnering.
