Summer Outdoor Touring Show – FREE admission!
The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their long lost twins, who go by the same names: Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

Arrive a half hour early to experience our special Green Show performances.
With the introduction of our cast touring to three different venues, we wanted to help direct audiences toward our show and set the Shakespearean mood.
Arrive at 5pm before each performance for a special 30-minute pre-show called The Green Show. Audiences will leave the noise and stress of the world behind them as actors introduce you into the world of Shakespeare. Poetry and laughter in The Green Show will provide a light-hearted atmosphere as you are welcomed into the performance. So come early with lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy an evening of Shakespeare.
