Theatre Wesleyan will open their second production of the 2015-16 season, The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, on Nov. 12.

The show is being billed as follows: "Suppose you found yourself in the middle of a social circle where members took enormous pleasure in damaging the reputations of everyone they know and know of? Sounds like The Real Housewives and TMZ, doesn’t it? The School for Scandal is proof that damaging gossip is nothing new."

The School for Scandal will run Nov. 12-14 and 19–22. All shows Nov. 12-21 will be at 7:30 p.m., and there is one matinee on Nov. 22 at 2 p.m. To reserve tickets, please visit our website at or call our box office at (817) 531-4211 beginning Nov. 2.
