The Comedy of Errors
Opened June 13
directed by James Rice

A classic Shakespearean romp of mistaken identity-it’s mischief and mayhem galore!

Two young visitors arrive in the city unaware that their long-lost twins already live there. Over the course of a single day, everything that can go wrong does go wrong: a marriage at breaking point, a missing gold chain, an unpaid debt, and a dubious arrest.

Henry V
Opened June 22
directed by Stephanie Coltrin

Shakespeare’s most patriotic and inspiring play tells of a young King Henry V who seeks to unite his beloved England. After laying claim to French lands and being ridiculed, Henry marches off to war. Although sorely outnumbered, Henry rallies his troops and, at Agincourt, achieves a decisive victory.
