The Maymester Shakespeare class in the department of theatre and film studies will present William Shakespeare's "A Comedy of Errors," June 2 and 4 at 8 p.m. in the Cellar Theatre:
A free performance June 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the UGA Founders Garden will be first come, first served; the audience is invited to bring blankets, chairs, food, beverages and insect repellant.
Tickets are $5, cash only, for the Cellar Theatre performances and can be purchased at the door before the show.
"A Comedy of Errors" tells the tale of two sets of identical twins separated at birth by a tragic shipwreck. In search of his long-lost twin brother, Antipholus of Syracuse (theatre major Christopher Stalcup) with his servant, Dromio of Syracuse (theatre major Hannah Klevesahl), come upon Ephesus, the unbeknownst hometown of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus (theatre major Tom Von Dohlen) and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus (M.F.A. acting student Stephanie Murphy).
Fun, plus serious Elizabethan drama training for our actors. Love the idea of 'found-object' props in this production - it will present a great sense of creativity to both the performers and the audience. Seest thou there.
