University of Wisconsin-Superior Theatre and Wise Fool Theatre collaborate to present one of William Shakespeare’s early plays, a farcical comedy revolving around a series of mishaps based on mistaken identities.
Shakespeare’s zaniest and shortest comedy, The Comedy of Errors is updated to be set in the seedy underbelly of New York in the 1970s. In this madcap tale of mistaken identity, two sets of twins are separated at birth and have recently ended up back in the same town, but they don’t know the others are there. Hilarity ensues as wives berate the wrong husbands and servants serve the wrong masters.
The cast features Cheryl Skafte, Jennie Ross, Anissa Peppersack, Chris Nollet, Kirsten Hambleton, Tygen Lundgren, Chandler Oja, Kitara Peterson, John Ryde-Crane, Elissa Hoole, Maria Lockwood, Jordan Smith, McKenzy Cich, Adam Lavine, Landon Dahl and Cory Netland.
Performances run April 26-28 and May 3-5. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and senior citizens. For ticket information call the Wise Fool Theater box office at 218-269-4953.
