Mistaken identities, misunderstood intentions, and two sets of identical twins – mix those together and the result is a “Comedy of Errors,” Shakespeare’s shortest and most outrageous comedy. A madcap story fraught with mayhem, confusion, anarchy, and hilarity!This production is appropriate for all ages, but children under 6 years old are not admitted.

An incredibly shy Englishman arrives at a fishing lodge in rural Georgia, and due to a misunderstanding, the locals assume that he cannot understand English because he is … “a foreigner.” Consequently, they speak openly in his presence about their personal affairs, deepest secrets, and sinister plans, as “the foreigner” maintains his mute presence and becomes involved in a plot to sort out their tangled lives. The result is a story that is hilarious and heartwarming and full of comic surprises.This production is appropriate for all ages, but children under 6 years old are not admitted.

The tale begins with a serious question, moves through lighthearted romance, and ends in with a miracle.This production is appropriate for all ages, but children under 6 years old are not admitted.

Camelot opened on Broadway in 1960 and won the Tony Award for best musical. Adapted from T.H. White’s The Once and Future King, it is about King Arthur and his noble, idealistic attempt to establish peace and order by creating the Knights of the Round Table. It is also the touching story of his wife Guinevere and the handsome French Sir Lancelot with whom she falls in love. The beautiful music includes the title song “Camelot,” “If Ever I Would Leave You,” and “What Do the Simple Folk Do?”This production is appropriate for all ages, but children under 6 years old are not admitted.
