Shakespeare in the State Parks – “The Comedy of Errors”
The Summit Players are a traveling, seven member theatre company who present short, accessible, free Shakespeare workshops and performances to audiences around Wisconsin. Before each show, there is a 45 minute workshop for kids (and fun adults) on Shakespearean text, general theatre practices, and how Shakespeare used nature in his plays. Workshop starts at 1:00, Show starts at 2:30.
All the words in the shows belong to Shakespeare, there are just fewer of them. Summit Players Theatre shows are produced with new cuttings of Shakespeare’s scripts that become tight, approximately 75 minute shows of mayhem, character switches, and hilarity.
This event is supported by an Arts and Culture grant.
