St. Scholastica presents The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare
The College of St. Scholastica’s theatrical production of William Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” opens Friday, Nov. 3.
Directed by Mary Jo Sodd, Shakespeare’s twisted tale of confusion and slapstick comedy invites audience members to experience a whirlwind of mistaken identities and side-splitting chaos as identical twin sons and their identical twin servants, separated by a treacherous shipwreck at sea, unexpectedly cross paths in Syracuse. Without knowing of the other pair’s existence, the four men interact with each other and those who know them in a constant flux of misunderstanding and mistaken identity.
The shows will be held at the St. Scholastica Theatre located on the main campus with evening performances at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 3-4 and 9-11, and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on Nov. 5 and 12. The Nov. 9 performance will be ASL interpreted (sponsored by the Pachel Family Grant).
Tickets are $17 for general admission, $12 for students and seniors, $7 for St. Scholastica students with their ID and free for Sisters of the St. Scholastica Monastery. Tickets can be purchased online.
Next on the St. Scholastica stage: “Rabbit Hole” by David Lindsay-Abaire, opening Friday, Feb. 23, 2024.
