STUDENT SHOW: American Shakespeare Center's 'The Comedy of Errors'

Back by popular demand, the American Shakespeare Center returns to FestivALL Fall, this time with their production of The Comedy of Errors. In this rollicking farce, Shakespeare elevates Roman comedy to dizzying heights. Two long-separated twins, their two tricky servants (also twins), a jealous wife, and her lovelorn sister romp through this fast-paced comedy. Filled with mistaken identities and slapstick humor, The Comedy of Errors will have audiences laughing from the first confusion to the last.

The American Shakespeare Center’s unique performance style blends Shakespeare’s stage craft with modern sensibility. Described as “shamelessly entertaining” by The Washington Post, this award-winning company follows the basic principles of a Renaissance theatrical production to give its audiences a fully lit and interactive experience.

Tickets: $5 per student with 1 free chaperone per 10 students. Ticket assistance and lunch options are available.
For RESERVATIONS Please call 304-470-0489 or email Brittany Javins.
Doors open at 9:30am and show ends at 12:15pm. Please plan to allow time for the transition to exit the theater.

There is also a public evening performance of this show at 7:30pm.
