Natick, MA – Thales Karatsolis of Natick, MA will play the role of Chrysale in Walnut Hill School for the Arts’ winter production of Molière’s The Learned Ladies this December.
The Learned Ladies pokes fun at the pretentiousness of academia and the conflicting views of a woman’s place in the world. In the matriarchal household at the center of the play, Chrysale (played by Karatsolis) has succumbed to his wife’s authority as she desperately tries to convince both of her daughters to strive for a life of the mind, rather than typical domestic pursuits. Each character in this world is a living, breathing embodiment of the question, “what is the right relationship between art and learning and everyday life?” Walnut Hill’s production will be directed by Steve McConnell of the Boston Conservatory and performances will be held on December 12, 13 &14 at 8:00pm at Studio 5 in Walnut Hill’s Dance Center in Natick, MA.
Karatsolis is currently a junior theater major at Walnut Hill and has previously received arts training at Long Lake Camp for the Arts. Before coming to Natick, he performed in school productions of Annie Jr. (Daddy Warbucks) and Little Shop of Horrors (Mushnik) in Doha, Qatar.
